Hibachi-Fusion Dining -Sushi – Sake Lounge

by Tom Dwyer

When Anthony Franconeri and his brother, Patrick, were growing up in Bayonne, they often rode their dirt bikes on the deserted landfill area along the Bayonne waterfront. They loved riding around the old oil tanks where it seemed time stood still. Little did they know that years later the area would be thriving with cruise ships, a world-class golf course, and a shopping mall where they would build, own and run one of the finest Asian fusion restaurants around.

New Book and Postcards Capture History of Weehawken

 Local authors release new book in time for Weehawken NJ’s 150th anniversaryweehawken-book-cover.bmp

Known as the little town across from New York City, Weehawken has a story all its own.  Just in time for the community’s 150th anniversary, Weehawken Historical Commission members Lauren Sherman and Ellen Robb Gaulkin present the local history using more than 200 vintage images in the new book, Weehawken. 

The majority of the images in Weehawken are from the Historical Commission’s collection and from a few residents with large personal collections. A number of individuals lent or donated a smaller trove of treasured postcards and old photos previously unknown to the Commission for the book. 

One of the Photo’s we at the River View Observer found interesting was Edward Hopper’s painting East Wind Over Weehawken,

weehawken-hopperpg046t.JPG 

depicting the corner of Forty-ninth Street and Boulevard East, was painted in 1934 after a series of eight sketches he did of the site. Hopper found inspiration in the urban scenes of the city and occasionally ventured across the river to Hoboken and Weehawken. The corner does not look much different today; the concrete urn still sits at the corner retaining wall directly across from the American Legion lot.
