TO THE ANONYMOUS JERK WHO SAID SAVE TEH JUNKYARD, MY FAMILY HAS BEEN THERE WAY BEFORE THE JUNKYARD WAS BUILT AND OUT OF SITE IT ISN'T ALONG WITH THE NOISE AND THE GARBAGE THEY DROP ALONG BLOOMFIELD AVE WHEN THE LEAVE THE YARD, CAR PARTS AND GLASS FALLING OFF OF THERE TRUCKS GOING TO YET ANOTHER LOCATION. WE HAVE PUT UP WITH ALOT OF "JUNK" OVER THE YEARS, MY HUSBAND REMEBERS WHEN YOU WERE ACTUALLY ABLE TO SWIM IN THE RIVER DOWN BEFORE THERE WAS A JUNKYARD. TO HAVE IT GO BACK TO ITS NATURAL HABITAT WOULD BE MUCH NICER THAN A CEMETARY OF JUNK CARS AND TRUCKS AND THE CONSTANT TRAFFIC AND PARKING OF PEOPLE LOOKING TO FIX THEIR CARS FROM THOSE RELICS AT THE JUNKYARD.

The people have spoken! :roll:

I think your all freakin nuts.. Both are retarded. the junkyard is stupid and horrible. illegals getting parts to fix there illegal cars.. and getting rid of it and putting old ppl down there is retarded as well. if anything. trash the entire site, plant some F-up trees, and call it a day. This town has turned to $#!* anyways.. fastest growing pie of crap is all is now... and its all because of us :o)

Hey, Brad! Got your Green Card yet? :haha

No hable englick amigo. :dunno


Funny thing is, it is like visiting a foreign country when I go there. You quickly realize that English is the foreign language as soon as you get out of your car.

It is somewhat of an anomaly that this place exists, especially as large as it is. It's about 40 acres, and in a town that has million-dollar neighborhoods. Admittedly, not immediately next-door, but go just a block or two away and you've got $3-500,000 houses.

I figure this will be wrapped up in a burocratic mess for years to come.

Not sure why the kerfluffle on this; it's freakin' New Jersey, where people and pollution co-evolve (which may explain a lot :P ). :lol:

Hey Brad,
I put my 2 cents in just for fun.

I agree with Save The Junkyard. I can still get hard to find parts there for my "orphan" vehicles. Putting senior housing on such toxic land is insane, unless you figure that seniors are that much closer to dying anyway. Save the junkyard! And save the seniors, too!

I hope this works okay, as I'm rather new at this computer stuff. I've lived in the area since the 40's, and am very aware of the junkyard, going back to the early 50's when there was a lawsuit involving the town and the junkyard.

I actually have and maintain very fond memories of the junkyard. I think it was about 1955 when a young man (now my husband), and I used to spend some "quality time" at the facility - it was our secret little get-away!

Every now and then I visit G.I.'s and it really brings back such wonderful memories. I'd feel sad if it no longer existed. I think you're all over-reacting about how terrible you think it is.

You can't find a Merkur you can afford???? The one advertised here on MCA in Classifieds in Winchester, VA for $800 ("some assembly required"), which looks pretty decent outside, is out of your reach??
