An article in the 7/16 edition of The Record indicates that NJ Transit plans to build a $4.5M parking deck "near Route 4".  Is this the lot across from Feathers?  Isn't that River Edge?  If not, where will this deck be built?

Story is HERE.

Recent article in the The Record about Ridgefield Park's new site:

Record Article

An portion of the article reads:

The new Web site is expected to bring residents up-to-date information on municipal meetings, agendas, borough officials, town-sponsored events, schedules, fees, and services.

"I think everyone wanted us to have a Web site," said Mayor Anthony Suarez on Wednesday. "It's our philosophy in government to have an open government. We want to get as much information to the public as possible and this is a great way of doing it."

Opinion in The Record (7/15/04):

I read with interest Columnist Lawrence Aaron's "Fighting for a place for kids to play" (Other Views, July 14).

Larry Riley was a neighbor of my relatives in Hackensack. I have never seen the man sit down. He has been and continues to be a tireless worker in his efforts to establish a Boys and Girls Club in Hackensack. More voices must be heard so that this dream can become a reality. My grandchildren attend the Boys and Girls Club in Lodi, and we certainly look forward to the day when they will be able to attend the club in their own town.

Larry's boundless energy in this endeavor and others is greatly appreciated.

Hackensack Discussion / Boys & Girls Club proposal

This article recently appeared in The Record:

Fighting for a place for kids to play
(Link requires free registration to The Record)

What's the consensus on the proposed project?

The article says:

[Hackensack resident, Larry] Riley's vision of locating a Boys and Girls Club in Hackensack has been stymied by the same lukewarm reaction the city demonstrated against other non-profit agencies. The city and county should be glad to give him a few dollars.

Is this a good project for Hackensack or simply one more county/state agency imposing itself on the city?

Perhaps someone would like to formulate a poll on this issue.  (Click "Poll" above to get started).

I've been slacking on city meeting reports.  I attended, but didn't post the results.  The last two meetings were short.  I'll post the results soon.

At the last meeting, Councilman Galvis was appointed Deputy Mayor. 

I'm told the Planning Board Meeting tomorrow should be interesting as the board will reveal plans for a revitalization project in the vincity of Green and Essex Streets.  People may want to attend to voice concern, input, etc.

The Planning Board meets at City Hall, 65 Central, at 7:00 pm.

If anyone else is interested in posting the results of city meetings, please let me know.

My understanding is that if the bike are under a certain "CC" (motor size) they are legal on city, but not county roads.

More pictures I found at City Hall.  I wish they had exact dates.  Does anyone know?

I'll be uploading more images from City Hall soon.  I'll place them in the message boards for a while and then move them to the Historical Images page where you can find 100+ images of historic Hackensack.

I really appreciate everyone's comments.  

Events & Calendar / Re:7/4/04 Celebration at Forshini Park
« on: July 05, 2004, 10:28:59 PM »
As reported by The Record:

A small cluster of people turned out early for the annual festival in Hackensack's Foschini Park, with more than 10,000 expected in the evening for fireworks and an oldies concert featuring the Duprees and Cornell Gunter's Coasters.

"The concert is great - it's Fifties music - and so we listen to the music and watch the fireworks show," said Margaret Pisano of Hackensack. "People dance. It's a wonderful way to spend the holiday."

"This is America's birthday - it's a great day for a celebration like this," said Mariam Ferguson, Hackensack's superintendent of recreation and cultural events. "We're so blessed in this country. I've traveled around the world and every time I get home, I kiss the ground."

Note: Two prior topics were merged to form this one.

We're working on a project to exhibit some old photographs at City Hall.  We found these in the basement:

Holy Trinity

Fire Truck

Temple Avenue

Sears & Roebuck


Stay tuned for more images.
