Let's take a stroll up Main St:

149 Main - 3


210 Main - 7

Somebody I know was concerned about front preservation of this building, so this is for you, E.

1-3. Entrance and light fixture intact

4,5. This is the view looking in through the front door all the way back to the Moore St entrance. I just noticed I'm partially in the mirror's reflection. The second image is a zoomed-in version of the first showing workers at the back entrance.

6. The next image was taken through the window that's just south of the main entrance.

7. The first picture the new tenants will take (well, maybe the second)


240 Main - 3

Hey - they got the name on it: "Meridia".

They'd better change it fast:

October 8, 2010: The FDA finally recalled Abbott Laboratories' obesity drug Meridia today. The nail-in-the-coffin was a big new study showing that the drug can increase heart attacks and strokes in high-risk patients.

This has been known since 2010 - how are the owners not aware of this?

Current on River - 8


The Hole (whose name should probably be changed soon to 150-170 Main, right?) - 4

1. Liftoff and splashdown from Moore St

2. Splashdown from Main St

3. Half of the site from Moore St includes 210 Main with its new hat.

4. Same as above, but it's a stitch that shows the entire site from Moore (and the hat).

3-11+13-19

1. The yellow thing starts to come off.

2. It's gone and what looks like fourteen horizontal bars remain (currently: eight)

3. More luxury for the future 210 Main tenants! A giant over-the-air TV antenna has been added!

4. The antenna was removed because it didn't have enough rust to match the sculpture. Meanwhile, this huge man shores up the sculpture...............or it could be someone working down the street at The Hole who photobombed my shot.

If you're going to the medical office building (20 Prospect), there's only one elevator bank on the roof - same with every other floor. Then it's a simple stroll around the corner on the ground floor to the elevators that take you to your destination. If you're going to the hospital (30 Prospect), that's a different building and a different elevator bank. One's on one side of the parking garage and the other one's on the other.............it's not too complicated.

What incentive does a hospital have for encouraging people to buy electric cars? It's not really their job. I'm sure you and others do much better jobs at that with your blogs.

Wow! Huge type AND boldface? You're thisclose to internet shouting. Perhaps instead of a one-mile top-off car charge, someone at the hospital can offer you a chill pill prescription.

That's not the point. The chargers are for the public, to encourage people to buy electric cars and plug-in hybrids.

If all of them are used by doctors or employees (the four in the other garage), then members of the public aren't served.

And parking on the upper deck isn't that simple, because of the different elevator banks that make you get off and switch elevators. It's pretty confusing, if you go there only a few times a year.

At Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, which is far smaller, there are only 2 electric chargers, and either the same car (an employee) is using one of them or a conventional car is parked in the other space because of a shortage of spaces in general.

The main parking garage is always packed, and some areas were closed for renovation when I was there in January and February to go to a dermatologist. I had to go to the top deck to find a space. The hospital has four electric chargers for visitors in one garage, but when I tried to use one all were taken.


Top deck? So what? You still take the elevator and walk the same amount. And you're also complaining that the hospital doesn't automatically provide a free charger for your car along with the free parking? After charging your car at home in HACKENSACK, you need a charger after driving ALL THE WAY to Hackensack Hospital? What's that, a mile?

SLOPPY, SLOPPY, SLOPPY

When I was looking at The Record's story on the expansion of Hackensack University Medical Center, I used the version reprinted in the Hackensack Chronicle on Feb. 8. The lede paragraph by Melanie Anzidei referred to a "nine-story ... tower on Second Avenue," apparently a reference to Second Street in Hackensack.

A photo caption shows the hospital president "looking out onto Second St. in Hackensack." A second caption says, "Construction is underway on Second St. in Hackensack ... on the Second Street Tower."

And thank you to those who are trying to provide technical help.

But visitors still are out of luck at Hackensack University Medical Center, I guess you are saying. Then, there is the factor of the medical center being so busy that going to one of the health providers is an ordeal. The main parking garage is always packed, and some areas were closed for renovation when I was there in January and February to go to a dermatologist. I had to go to the top deck to find a space. The hospital has four electric chargers for visitors in one garage, but when I tried to use one all were taken. Ten other electric chargers are reserved for doctors. Who is "addicted" to valet parking?

Chilton has free parking, as well as Holy Name. St Joseph's in Paterson also charges for parking. Come to think of it I've made too many hospital visits lately  :o
