Boonton trolley[edit]

Isn't it kind of odd that this is the article that outlines the plan to splice the Bergen Hudson Light Rail with the Newark City Subway and extend it to Paterson? And without mentioning it in the articles for those three rail lines? Jim.henderson (talk) 05:17, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Actually, I hadn't gotten around to editing those other articles yet. Thanks for the reminder though! rileyjam (talk) 2:25, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Nice if you can find a citation, too. Jim.henderson (talk) 05:10, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Citation for.... ? rileyjam (talk) 6:05, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Whose project, scheme or movement? Thus far there are just two links to what appear to be the personal site or blog of a private individual. No reference is supplied for a politician or transit company or state agency or municipal department or long established institution (Regional Plan Association?) that's pushing it.

Agreed. Paragraph removed for failing WP:RS. oknazevad (talk) 17:58, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

WMCA transmitter towers - still up[edit]

"Famous 1960s pop music station, WMCA AM 570, "The Home Of The Good Guys", used to broadcast from a 3-tower transmitter site on the Hackensack River, in Kearny. The transmitters were visible from the New Jersey Turnpike. The towers were demolished in January, 2007" Uhhhhh.. (I took that two weeks ago)

(also, yes these are the WMCA ones) --Qwerty0 (talk) 20:53, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

You are correct. The towers that are down but visible in the water (or at least the capacitance tophats are still visible) are the demolished WNEW towers that were used until WNEW moved in 1968. I will delete that sentence, and look for some decent sources to add in the former transmitter locations of WNEW and WAAT/WJRZ, which was demolished to make way for the western spur of the Turnpike.

John Harkes and Wembley[edit]

John Harkes was not the first American to score at Wembly in the League Cup final of 1993.
The first American to score at Wembley was Mike Masters for Colchester United vs. Whitton Albion, in the F.A Trophy Final, on 10th May 1992.

i restored the library subsection and pic, because it has an external link, and relies on a wikipedia list of carnegie libraries in nj. not detrimental; needs a reference. Slowking4: †@1₭ 21:49, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

dashes . . . .[edit]

Look: Things like spelling and punctuation exist. In several edits I fixed an unbelievably vast number of things like


where it should have said


etc. Also some instances of +/- $3000 where it should say ±$3000. Please: Look at WP:MOS. (talk) 05:14, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Penn Central Crash; October 8, 1971[edit]

While searching for another topic, I found a link to a Penn Central Railroad accident in Kearny on October 8, 1971. This could be good for the site, but where did Penn Central have a line in Kearny? And was this Pennsylvania Railroad's old line, or the line of some New York Central affiliate? ---------User:DanTD (talk) 11:54, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
