I would hope they completely vacated the store during the entire time that any structural members were being demolished higher than the height of the store.   There was an incident in Philadelphia in 2012 where 7 people were killed because a contractor did not empty the adjoining structure, and the wall went thru the roof... 

image 6339... who the hell allowed them to take down that wall like that, with an occupied building directly against it.

I'm surprised they didnt get the family dollar and finish off the block.

been going on for a long time and its an open secret.  Clearly nobody in the B of E gives a crap.  Wonder why the school budget is over 100 million dollars?  if they would do strict residency they wouldnt need to build a new school.  Bergenfield did just that a few years ago.  got rid of hundreds of students.   But nobody wants to do anything about it, so the cars with out of state plates line up every day around the schools in Hackensack.   Driving up the taxes of the people who live there.

doesnt bother me a bit.  he contributes more than anyone else in this group, so who cares if he has a link or not.

Well, I gave a damn because I worked there so many years, and asked the company that's taking it down.  Thanks, Eric, for seeing my point. And while I'm at it, does it bother anyone that BLEAFE gets to put a link to his photo business on his posts? What's that crass commercialism all about?

well, you would be wrong.    The correct nautical term is listing...   and it is not stuck in the mud either, at least not as it was before.   you see, on the night of October 29, 2012, the Ling actually popped out of the mudhole it was in for the previous 39 years when the river crested....   when the river went back down the boat did not settle back in the depression it had been in, so it took on a 4 degree list to port.     that is where it sits today...

its a BS list.  take out property crime.   then rank the places.   Mantua Twp is at the bottom. 4 violent crimes, but hundreds of property crimes.  because they have a big drug problem there so petty crime is rampant.   this list means nothing.
