Hackensack Discussion / Re: All the cars in my garage since the '60s........
« Last post by johnny g on February 28, 2021, 07:15:54 AM »
Excellent collection Bob! My first car was a 73 Vega that my dad bought me from someone up on Summit Ave. He haggled him from $300 to a "measly" $275. The fender had rot on it (the joke of Vega's is that they "rusted on the showroom floor") It was gold with a black interior. My dad felt it was "safe" for me cause it was a little 4 cylinder and I wouldn't "get into trouble" with it. Anyone who had a Vega used the expression "Fill it up with oil and check the gas" It burned a lot of oil, like yours did I'm sure. As the months went on the cars got bigger and faster, and after a few accidents and tickets for speeding and racing my dad WISHED I still had that Vega  :o

...........(minus the garage - I never had one).

There's at least one Hackensack picture and one Main St story buried within:

I REALLY needed to get out of the apartment, so I headed over to the Hackensack River Walkway. The first thing I photographed was the highlight of the walk (read the writeup on YouTube):




Below are the stills, including:

- 1 of the Rothman Center

- 3 of the geese/ducks

- 1 MLK in the snow

- 4 on the pedestrian bridge over the river, including 3 showing fine outdoor dining (1- No reservation needed, 2- Free water [yours for the catching], and 3 - Open bar). Nice views, too.

- 4 images from the Teaneck side (in 2 pix)

I happened to be searching Uncle Floyd on You Tube and found his Uncle Floyd New Jersey and was happy to find his Hackensack episode, and a nice visit to the Record King

Oh, brother!

When you're reading something - especially if it's a serious subject - the last thing you want is to encounter a dopey error that disrupts the reading flow.

Read the second paragraph and do so knowing that "dentition" pertains to the development of teeth and their arrangement in the mouth. It's highly unlikely that SpellCheck would replace a common word like "detention" with the less common "dentition", so what's the excuse, Record?

If you get Nixle notices, you've been getting a bunch lately about double-parking on Main St. But I saw something that didn't seem quite right, so I emailed them about it:


Dear HOEM,

You may want to make a slight adjustment on the below notice.

LAWS get strictly enforced - not violations of those laws. As written, it appears that violations might be OK.



So what's changed since then?

Nada.
