Hackensack Discussion / Swans Sighting
« on: May 31, 2009, 12:43:00 PM »
This morning, from my apartment, I saw 4 swans in the Hackensack River (at low tide) at the northern tip of Foschini Park.

In my 21 years here, I've seen egrets, ducks, hawks, and too many geese there, but never swans.

Is this an unusual sighting?

Seller's description:

free shipping. good condition. 10 by 7 inches this is a photo album, a lady named Edna Gerecke of New Jersey took pictures and then put them in the album with commentary. for example there is a 'statue of Hackensaki Indian, municipal bus terminal, Hackensack. on the same page "The bells of Corpus Christi, Hasbrouck Heights." most of he pictures in the album are from New Jersey. One of my favorites are pictures of "Elephants in the Mounts back of Nyack. included in the album are pictures of her grandfather in a casket at his funeral as well as his grave in a cemetery and lots of flowers. another favorite of mine is their 1929 Auburn car. first time I ever saw an Auburn! really fascinating. but about half the pictures are not identified. still neat. some of the pages in the album are loose.

There are lots of cards whose images were taken from this area, but I don't think I've seen this one before.

Rare or not, this guy charges too much for a card ripped out of a photo album.

Seller's description:

Man went to work for Corbin Sedan Co., and last half filled in with information about how he traveled and how much spent. for example on October 23rd, he went, "Long Island run - about car ferry 60 cents." fascinating.


One of the entries is for Charles Goddard of 15 Linden St - the man who owned the 1908 diary that the same seller has up for auction. 15 Linden is across the street from Comfort Coal. Is there a connection between Tidewater Coal and Comfort Coal?

I'm not sure what River Edge building you're referring to, but my money's on the Swiss Chalet that was on Passaic St in Rochelle Park.

Comfort Coal was located where the Rite-Aid strip is on Anderson St. Its president in the early part of the 20th century was Hiram Blauvelt of the Blauvelt Mansion on Kinderkamack Rd in Oradell. Comfort Coal burned down in a spectacular fire in the 1950s.
