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

1 or 4 items not related to sports is immaterial. My eyes glaze over just trying to take in all the stuff you post, and it's extremely repetitive. Seems like you have nothing better to do. I can relate to that. And, again, the paper is doing a lot more disservice to readers by reducing local coverage and filling local news pages with police news. One Local section was an economy instituted by Stephen Borg, but it means Bergen readers have had an overwhelming amount of Paterson news shoved down their throats for years.
This is the post-Holman post. It reveals a nice new view of Holy Trinity Church.

It's a visual improvement, I'm very happy the hideous blue is gone. Now, what really needs to happen is (1) remove the invasive billboard, and (2) restore the house to it's historic identity and give it a plaque.  If my memory serves correct, the house dates to 1836 and was home to a historic figure.

(unrelated note: these pix were taken 6 minutes apart during a quick run to Rite-Aid. I had to wait for a train in both directions.....might as well take pictures while I wait, right?)

...and here it is. It says "Santiago", but I later saw an electronic window sign that said "Emilio's", so let's call it "Geri's Cuts" (formerly "Geri's Cold Cuts").

Nice, an article about a building sale, without reporting the price of the sale. Reporters these days are brainless.
Hackensack Discussion / Re: Former Hackensack mayor Kazmier Wysocki dead at 99

Whew, another fountain of knowledge is gone. I was just thinking after "Homer Jones" passed that Wysocki should be interviewed for his take on the history of Hackensack, before he passes. My psychic was spot on, again. He takes with him an enormous amount of information on Hackensack. Especially the city's studies on urban blight in the early 1960's. There's was a plan to seize and level over 700 homes, which were mostly in the First Ward and Carver Park neighborhoods, and the area between Target and FDU. It was very controversial, and it was shut down by opposition. And rightly so. Hackensack elected it's first African-American councilman as a result. Virtually nothing is written in any official "history of Hackensack" about this, probably because it was too controversial to even write about. And the studies aren't even located at the Johnson Library any more. I think that whole collection was moved to Felician College.
