The Record dismisses
airport's quality of life threat
in just a few words

Before the Covid 19 pandemic, air traffic from Teterboro Airport had the biggest impact on the quality of life in Hackensack, Teaneck and Englewood, as noisy multimillion dollar business jets owned by big corporations and celebrities roared overhead day and night. During the warmer months, residents of some of the high-rises along Prospect Avenue feared going out on their terraces as jets lining up for a landing seemed to skim their rooftops.

But in a Record article on the opening of a new diner near the airport that was reprinted in the Hackensack Chronicle today, reporter Philip DeVencentis refers to a "small airfield parked with private jets and prop planes."

What a buffoon.

Although the pandemic, shutdown of businesses, lockdowns and quarantines in 2020 cut air traffic significantly, there has been a lot more activity at Teterboro and other airports in the last month or two, and an increase in jet noise over Hackensack's Fairmount section and other neighborhoods.

To call the Port Authority owned airport "a small airfield" is inaccurate and irresponsible.

Runway Diner is owned by the same couple that own Fairmount Eats, according to the weekly newspaper, and they and a partner "also share a stake" in Chillers Grill in Fort Lee.

Devencentis reports the new diner is "delivering amid the pandemic."

So, no takeout?

I haven't had occasion to use the Midtown Bridge for quite a while, but when I visited Foschini Park on Sunday, I headed over in that direction and saw something I wasn't aware had even started yet: construction where the municipal parking lot across from Bowler City (Parking Area C) was.

Is there a catchier name for this project than how I titled this post? Did I hear "Gateway" somewhere?

I walked around the site and took some pictures - nothing very exciting.

The fifth picture is a blowup of something attached the subject of the fourth pic. For some reason, it's now my monitor's current wallpaper.

Y'all know the eighth image.

This post comes one year after the previous post and SEVEN years after the top stitch in the pair of photo stitches from 1-19-14 and 1-10-21.

I'd say that Hackensack now has a much better view.

..............doot in doo doo

Been getting a couple of blazers lately. The towers are The Modern 1 and 2 in Fort Lee near the GWB, 5 or 6 miles away from me. You can see the top of the GWB's New Jersey tower in the 6th pic.

I got up too late yesterday, so I went to a different window and caught the rising sun reflecting off one of the windows on the steeple of the First Presbyterian Church on my block.

All dates are below each image.

My father opened Teen Towers, which was a child and teenage shoe store, in the 1950s  The store also sold ballet shoes and dancewear, which included the first version of the modern leotard. My family lived in Teaneck at the time.  I would love to hear from people who remember the store.

Mayor John Labrosse opened tonight's City Council meeting by confirming rumors that Deputy Mayor David Sims violated the Covid-19 lockdown at City Hall in the last week of December by entering the building with a relative who had tested positive for the coronavirus. The building on Central Avenue is closed to visitors.

The mayor called the lockdown violation an "unfortunate incident," and said that no one condones Sims' actions. The relative is believed to be Sims' daughter, who is married and doesn't live with the councilman.

As a precaution, the mayor said, the 2nd floor of the building was emptied of employees.
