Bet you don’t remember Eagan School!
Doesn’t look familiar, does it…
Found this image on Family-Images.com – and struggled for a few days wondering – where the heck is this building?
Couldn’t recognize it, and scoured the city looking for something similar…
You can see the answer after the jump…
(Eagan School, continued…)
There’s a reason it doesn’t look familiar
I was racking my brain, mystified that I couldn’t recognize it, despite many buildings with subtle similarities.. It wasn’t until I ran into Hoboken411 contributor T.G. Heins over at Landmark Coffee – that I got my answer.
There was a postcard for sale on a sandwich board outside the coffee shop, that basically said this row of buildings from 1910 was along “Ferry Street” (Which was renamed) – and is now a parking lot along Hudson Street and Observer Highway. Wonder what happened to these beautiful buildings? Fire? Arson? Ants? Hurricane?
Does anyone know why these buildings disappeared, when there are plenty of pre-1900 structures still standing strong?
NOTE: If the notecard at Landmark was wrong for some reason – and was factual inaccurate – please let me know!
