10-12-18 to 10-19-18

Various and sundry………….

The only one worth mentioning is IMG_4216 from 10-15. All I know is that these are a new version of light gauge metal forms - instead of wood - for the footings. They get buried in those grave-like holes.

BTW - the last one contained the boulder that’s already on the ground. I missed stopping it in mid-air (bad day).

Hackensack has lost ANOTHER building of significant historic character, one that I had long hoped would be someday restored to it's original glory.

I took this 6 months ago. You can see part of the building's twin peaks and the old ad for the McCrory's that was a predecessor of the furniture store. I'm guessing that the ad is part of the rubble pile, especially since it wasn't visible at the time of the fire and there was no way to save it anyway.

I also have a stitch of the ad that includes the then-just-started-on new building next door at 149 Main.

The scene yesterday morning:

1 - I parked on Moore St and I'm glad I took this shot right away because the hose was turned off by the time I made it around to Main St.

2 - Once again, I was stopped by a cop who asked for my press credentials. Once again, I explained my story and - once again, it was a nice cop who walked down the street, spoke with someone and waved me in. I was not allowed by get any closer than 161 Main, so I couldn't shoot the whole pile straight on as I had done the night before. This was as much of the pile as I could get from Main St, but it allowed me to get the scene that resembled a battleground right next to the Battleground store. Oh yeah - there was one other reason they wouldn't let me get dead-center: a sinkhole had formed in the street at that spot. There were trucks on either side of the hole, so I couldn't get a shot of it. Maybe that's why Main was closed today.

3 - It's VERY fortunate that all this wood didn't burn up - ESPECIALLY since the gusty wind was pointed almost right at it.

4 - The men are standing on a dirt pile across the street at the Hole project (probably not the official name, but it's been appropriate for too long).

5 - Do NOT cross from the front of the box to the back!

6 - There will be a slight delay in completing the installation of the new building's diving board/plank-to-walk.

7 - "Fire in the Hole!" Well, across the street from it. (It's a stitch - start scrolling left to right)
