The first pic/stitch was taken from the top of a fence that now bars the public from the site. The rest were taken fore and aft of the Court St Bridge.

Last image: from the bottom, it's out with the old, in with the new.

The first two images were taken from the Court St Bridge, the third from W. Fort Lee Rd in Bogota and the last two were taken from Costco on the other side of the river in Hackensack.

HAD to take advantage of last Sunday's 68-degree temperature and go shoot some projects:

50 Main

Up to the second floor. Interesting stitch and non-stitch:

76 Main

Nothing happening

153 Main

Taken from Moore St

170 Main

The first one was taken from home on 1-5-20 - the rest on 1-12-20. The LAST one was taken from the NW corner of River and Atlantic. As I was about to take it, I saw out of the corner of my eye a mob of pigeons take off from somewhere and was fortunate to get this shot.

210  Main

Stitch of what I had been thinking was going to be the bank's driveup window before I remembered that it wasn't a bank anymore, so I don't know what it is.

Current on River

The sales push is on (1 and 2) - the SE and SW corners (3 and 4) - and found in the parking lot on the western periphery (and missing 2 letters).

The Record

The first stitch was taken from Moore St. The other two pix - including the ugly stitch - were taken from the southern border of the property where the driveway leads you either to the Heritage Diner or the locked gate where the two tollbooth-like structures stand and used to lead to The Record's parking lots.

1.2. Rooftop: A/C units


3,4,5. Corner of Main & Ward and looking up Main St sidewalk towards Ward

6,7. Passaic St side - Resisto Red is almost gone

8. State St side


9. The view coming out of my building's back door

10. Swapping dumpsters


11. Top to bottom: Fort Lee towers, icy Teaneck trees, 395 Main's roof with A/C units


12. The scaffolding is usually straight across the side.
13. Items get brought to higher floors the old-fashioned way.


14. When the scaffolding support poles need to be moved, a notched board and rope (and muscle) do the trick together with a crew on the ground.
15. This one is being moved from the State St side to the Ward St side.
16, 17. This pole is being lowered to the ground.


18. Welding on Ward


19, 20. Working on Ward, calling on State

Does anyone know how this was resolved.  I notice the advocates of Becton Regional are no longer talking about it on Maywood facebook pages and blogs.  That could mean it was denied.

I was able to determine that on October 21, 2019, Judge Moscowitz "sent it back" to the State Commissioner of Education, and said that he (Moscowitz) lacks jurisdiction to make a determination either way.

I didn't want a repeat of last year when I didn't get this out until March, so even though it's got more stuff in it, I worked on this for almost every waking hour of the last week-and-a-half and got it done today.

Hope you like it.
