Hackensack Discussion / Re: My favorite paper is not having a good day

During basketball season, "raining threes" is a good thing when your team is doing it. At The Record, it rains fives EVERY season - more like a 12-month downpour - which is NOT a good thing. And lest you think that this lazy and unimaginative shortcut to article-writing is solely the domain of the sports section, I'm here to tell you that only 16 of the following 19 recent examples originated there, so take that, naysayers!

The first two non-sports offerings should have been only one, but someone thought no one would notice if they rearranged a word or two and ran the same story on two consecutive days. Talk about lazy!

Chure, man. Here's some more:

1. They finally put a banner on the fence at Main and Ward to show what's coming.

2. Looking north

3. Looking south

4. Spray and shoot

Hackensack History / Re: Old Candy stores

Anybody remember Fine Stationary (maybe Fein) owned by Charlie. It was on Main Street, near Lido.

Someone at the office is asking. Would have been late 60's early 70's.  In addition to stationary, they sold candy, toys, etc.

Ol’ Homer prefers Stony Hill over the White Manna. Their wine list is far superior.
Photography...........the way I see it (Moderated by BLeafe) / Re: Projects update

150-170 Main: 382 units over 7000 sq. ft. retail.  They started pouring concrete footings today (finally).
149 Main: 72 units over retail. They'll make an effort to replicate the old Woolworth's façade.

Thanks for the photo updates!
The Hole at Main and Mercer & 147 Main

1. Stitch looking west from Moore St

2, 3, 4. Three things I hadn't seen there before

5. Looking northeast from Main St

6. Meanwhile, directly across Main St: all this piping has been added since the last time I was here. Anyone have any idea what's coming to this space? I'm guessing that the McCrory 5 and 10 Cent Store sign is hidden again for another century.

210 Main (front and back)

1, 2, 3. EXCLUSIVE! The first tenant has already moved in to...........

4......... (where I removed the color from the building [not a big fan of the reddish/pinkish look of the bottom images])

5. The 210 alley that goes from Main to Moore

6, 7. Strange shapes taking place in the rear lobby of............


9, 10. Heading south and west to..........

11...................before heading............

12, 13...................north


The rear entrances of some of the Main St stores (third and fourth images) are more interesting than the front entrances (a mop over the door that's held open with a rope AND a sign that gets the street name wrong?).

Speaking of getting things wrong, the last image is a failed photo stitch that's so bad, it's kind of comical.

Sunday's temperatures were tolerable and I was overdue for another projects update, so off I went to shoot Current on River, Moore/E. Salem/Main, 210 Main (front and back) and The Hole at Main and Mercer combined with 147 Main across the street. Filesizewise (not  a real word),  I'll have to make a post for each of the four topics.


All the pipes you see in the first three shots weren't there last time I visited. Anyone know what this particular area is to become (or what is shown in the seventh picture)?
