    Dock no longer controls LANE, HAYNES, HIGH, HUNTER, CLIFF, REA AND HUDSON. Also those toggle boxes are called Local Control Panels.

    My grandfather, George Samuel Harris, is buried in Potter's Field in Newark, New Jersey. I would like to know why there are no records of the over 18,000 people.

  • Tastee Bread Factory S 10th St, Original Site, Burt (guest) wrote 3 years ago:
    I grew up in Irvington (1951-65) and remember a Cub Scout trip to the Tastee Bakery, probably about 1958 or 59. The hot bread that came out at the end of the tour was so delicious! Tastee was a sponsor of Junior Frolics on Channel 13. I was in the audience twice and was given a little loaf of Tastee Bread.
  • Most Blessed Sacrament Friary , Franciscan, Virginia (guest) wrote 3 years ago:
    I was Baptised in Blessed Sacrament in Newark on Springfield Ave. I was born in 1945 and cant seem to find any record of the church. I lived on Avon Ave between 17th and 18th St. I can remember my Mom and I walking to Church every Sunday.
