Where In Verona Is It? Week 52

By on July 18, 2011

This is it folks: The last week of MyVeronaNJ.com’s year-long contest to see how well you know the town you live in. Over the last 52 weeks, Fred Goode has taken his camera–and you–to just about every corner of Verona, night and day, and sometimes more than once.

Maybe you’ve won one of our signature MyVeronaNJ.com baseball caps, maybe you’ve never guessed before. Maybe you should give it one more try before we end this contest and begin to work on the next one, which will twist your brain in a whole new direction (more about that later). Fred has sent 28 pictures for this week, and one of them may be just the clue you need.

And one final reminder on the rules: Put your real name, real email address and guess into the Comments field below. Good(e) luck!.

UPDATE: We’re now up to FIFTEEN clues. Keep guessing!

    2nd time trying to post this…is it one of the flag poles at the civic center?

  2. Virginia Citrano

    July 18, 2011 at 7:20 am

    We’ll all having trouble this Monday. But yours includes a wrong answer.

  3. beth

    July 18, 2011 at 11:52 am

    Ok, I’ll keep barking up a tree…even if it’s wrong…how about a flag pole at the “triangle” (where Bloomfield meets Pompton/Mt. Prospect)

  4. Bill

    July 18, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    Looks like trailer hitch…..where would there be a trailer???? How about DPW facility on Commerce Ct?

  5. Virginia Citrano

    July 18, 2011 at 2:58 pm

    How about not?

  6. Virginia Citrano

    July 18, 2011 at 2:58 pm

    Wrong tree.

    Fenton Construction

  8. Virginia Citrano

    July 18, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    Fenton Construction gets a guess every other week. It’s been the wrong guess before and it still is now.

  9. Bill

    July 18, 2011 at 6:16 pm

    Essex County salt dome on Bloomfield Ave?

  10. Maureen McCann

    July 18, 2011 at 6:20 pm

    The boathouse in Verona Park?

  12. beth

    July 18, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    Is it your house?

  13. Virginia Citrano

    July 18, 2011 at 8:17 pm

    Bill: No, but a creative guess. Maureen: No, though I think I understand why you thought that. Kathleen: No, you have ‘”Annie” on the brain. Beth: No. At least not the last time I checked.

  14. Bill

    July 18, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    This is a fun contest, I wish that I had participated earlier……my next wrong guess will be the Bahr lumber parking lot on Durrell

  15. Virginia Citrano

    July 18, 2011 at 8:57 pm

    Better late than never. But better right than wrong, and unfortunately, Bahr was Week 25: http://www.myveronanj.com/2011/01/11/where-in-verona-is-it-charles-bahr-son/

    How about one of my favorites (tell me if you’ve heard this one before)…7 11

    Verona Sewer Plant

  18. admin

    July 19, 2011 at 6:59 am

    I can even hum the first four notes of that tune. But it’s still not right. BTW, we’re going to have a profile of one of the new businesses in the 7-11 complex soon.

  19. Virginia Citrano

    July 19, 2011 at 7:17 am

    Not the sewer plant, sorry.

  20. Drew

    July 19, 2011 at 7:40 am

    how about Alberona on Bloomfield

  21. Virginia Citrano

    July 19, 2011 at 7:46 am

    How about No?

  22. Colin

    July 19, 2011 at 7:52 am

    West Essex Building Supply?

  23. kathleen

    July 19, 2011 at 10:53 am

    Fred’s house!

  24. Virginia Citrano

    July 19, 2011 at 11:00 am

    Now why would he want all you people knowing what his house looks like? No.

  25. Bill

    July 19, 2011 at 1:06 pm

    Lukoil??

  26. Virginia Citrano

    July 19, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    Sorry, you’ll need a different power source for the answer.

  27. beth

    July 19, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    How about the new Allstate office near the corner of Bloomfield & Brookdale.

  28. Drew

    July 20, 2011 at 1:05 am

    What about the old Brunner dealership on Bloomfield

  29. Bill

    July 20, 2011 at 1:48 am

    Taking another stab at it….Hillcrest Farms???

  30. Virginia Citrano

    July 20, 2011 at 7:26 am

    Sorry, gentlemen: Been there, done that, as the kids say. Hillcrest was week 1: http://www.myveronanj.com/2010/07/28/where-in-verona-the-winner-of-week-1/ and the old Brunner dealership was Week 34: http://www.myveronanj.com/2011/04/14/2011/03/14/where-in-verona-is-it-week-34/

  31. Virginia Citrano

    July 20, 2011 at 7:27 am

    I think I forgot to say No to this one, so here it is: No.

  32. beth

    July 20, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    Henrys?

  33. Virginia Citrano

    July 20, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    Nope.

  34. Jeff Shilling

    July 20, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    Let’s try the maintainance room in, oh, try HBW for this one.

  35. Bill

    July 20, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    Walgreens?

  36. Virginia Citrano

    July 20, 2011 at 3:54 pm

    No to Walgreens and Jeff, really? What happened to all your scientific analysis of Fred’s photos?

  37. Sue

    July 20, 2011 at 6:52 pm

    Verona Pool

  38. Carl

    July 20, 2011 at 7:02 pm

    I believe that the #3 Photo may be a product manufactured by Carboline http://www.carboline.com . Visit the web site and see if you folks might agree….If so, think about water-proofing companies in Verona along with businesses that service the Carboline types of materials..Just a hunch….

  39. Drew

    July 20, 2011 at 8:04 pm

    the new dry cleaners next to 7-11, I don’t know the name of this cleaner cause I only go to Jimmy at American Dry Cleaners

  40. Virginia Citrano

    July 20, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    Sue: No. Drew: It’s called Lapels. Carl: You’ve clearly been studying with Jeff Shilling.

  41. Drew

    July 20, 2011 at 10:10 pm

    ok then how about frank anthony’s

  42. kathleen

    July 21, 2011 at 9:08 am

    Jack McEvoy Contractor

  43. Virginia Citrano

    July 21, 2011 at 9:31 am

    Hmmm. That seems more like “who in Verona” than “where in Verona”. No.

  44. beth

    July 21, 2011 at 11:45 am

    I know Jack, so I know it’s NOT Jack. But how about Custom Creations?

  45. Virginia Citrano

    July 21, 2011 at 11:58 am

    You’re right. It’s not Jack’s. That was week 5: http://www.myveronanj.com/2010/08/25/where-in-verona-contest-week-5-winner/
    But it’s also not Custom Creations…

  46. beth

    Gemmells?

  47. Jeff Shilling

    July 21, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    MJB Construction, 166 Bloomfield Ave

  48. Virginia Citrano

    July 21, 2011 at 1:47 pm

    No to Gemmells, no to MJB.

  49. Bill

    July 21, 2011 at 10:29 pm

    JAB Construction on Depot st?

  50. Drew

    July 21, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    how about Postnet next to lapel dry cleaners

  51. Virginia Citrano

    July 21, 2011 at 11:39 pm

    No, but I had a fun time interviewing them. Will have a story soon. And Bill, I should have written about JAB before. But that’s not where we are. More in the morning.

  52. beth

    July 22, 2011 at 6:51 am

    Dutch Maid?

  53. Virginia Citrano

    July 22, 2011 at 7:03 am

    Wow. I don’t think anyone has guessed that in the last year ever. Maybe because it’s wrong. New clue going up now.

  54. kathleen

    Essex County Public Works building, 900 Bloomfield Ave

  58. beth

    July 22, 2011 at 7:44 am

    Ok, I’ll change tactics…Congregational church?

  59. Virginia Citrano

    July 22, 2011 at 8:11 am

    Not Public Works.

  60. Virginia Citrano

    July 22, 2011 at 8:11 am

    Uh-oh, random guessing has started. Not the Congregational Church.

  61. beth

    July 22, 2011 at 8:36 am

    American Dry Cleaners? (And what’s wrong with random guessing on such a hot day?)

  62. Bill

    July 22, 2011 at 8:48 am

    I’m sure this has been done before but is it the library?

  63. Virginia Citrano

    July 22, 2011 at 8:50 am

    It’s like “random dancing” on iCarly. Fun, but pointless. Or in this case, futile.

    So stay by the fan, and watch for more clues.

  64. kathleen

    July 22, 2011 at 8:56 am

    Random guessing is fun – Montclair Acura

    Verona pool

  66. Virginia Citrano

    July 22, 2011 at 11:26 am

    Yes Bill, the Library was week 18: http://www.myveronanj.com/2010/11/24/where-in-verona-is-it-the-library/

    Kristin, the Pool was week 46: http://www.myveronanj.com/2011/06/06/where-in-verona-is-it-week-46/

    Beth and Kathleen, No.

    New clues going up soon.

  67. Jeff Shilling

    July 22, 2011 at 11:50 am

    I thought we already did this one but how about the Verona Community Center?

  68. kathleen

    July 22, 2011 at 12:20 pm

    Petron Pools

  69. Virginia Citrano

    July 22, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    Jeff, while we did the field up by the Community Center on Week 10, we hadn’t done the Community Center itself. We still haven’t.

    Kathleen, No. But some sort of pool would be a good option for the afternoon.

  70. kathleen

    July 22, 2011 at 12:29 pm

    Verona Yoga

  71. Virginia Citrano

    July 22, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    No, but you have to go to the next “Wineyasa” work-out there. It was great!

  72. beth

    July 22, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    Is it the Senior Apts. across the street from the high school?

  73. Virginia Citrano

    July 22, 2011 at 1:56 pm

    Nope. Not Hillwood.

  74. beth

    July 22, 2011 at 2:08 pm

    Y & L Health Care Clinic

  75. admin

    July 22, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    I don’t even know that that is. So, by default, No.

  76. fred

    July 22, 2011 at 3:30 pm

    Wow!

  77. Sue

    July 22, 2011 at 4:32 pm

    Building and Grounds garage on Ozone avenue

  78. Bryan

    July 22, 2011 at 5:19 pm

    I think we should all pray for the heatwave to end at OLL

  79. beth

    July 22, 2011 at 5:29 pm

    155 Pompton Ave? (Used to be a bank, then AAA was there, now I think there is a chiropractor in the building

  80. Colin

    July 22, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    Lukes auto service on Grove?

  81. Jeff Shilling

    July 22, 2011 at 8:44 pm

    First Presbyterian Church on Fairview.

  82. Donna

    July 22, 2011 at 9:29 pm

    Is it the Community Center?

  83. Virginia Citrano

    July 22, 2011 at 9:50 pm

    Let me work through these in reverse order.

    Donna: No. Jeff had the same guess earlier today
    Jeff: No. Again. Or is that three times?
    Colin: No
    Beth: Doesn’t matter what you call it, that’s not where we are.
    Bryan: A prayer to end the heat wave is a great idea. Start now.
    Sue: No.

  84. Colin

    July 22, 2011 at 9:57 pm

    How about Carnevale on Bloomfield Ave?

  85. Virginia Citrano

    July 22, 2011 at 10:20 pm

    No, and I’m not posting any more pictures tonight. Go to sleep.

  86. Bill

    July 23, 2011 at 2:18 am

    One more shot at it before I spontaneously combust…..Town Hall?

  87. beth

    July 23, 2011 at 5:22 am

    Fred wins….

  88. Virginia Citrano

    July 23, 2011 at 7:17 am

    Bill, alas, that was Week 2: http://www.myveronanj.com/2010/08/04/where-in-verona-the-winner-of-week-2/
    If you feel as if you are going to combust, you might be able to save the 911 call since several members of the Rescue Squad have been guessing along with you.

    Beth, surrender is not an option. I’m putting up some new photos now.

  89. kathleen

    July 23, 2011 at 9:30 am

    Prout Funeral Home/Monument Place

  90. Virginia Citrano

    July 23, 2011 at 9:40 am

    Again, No.

  91. Jeff Shilling

    July 23, 2011 at 12:10 pm

    OK, I actually checked the list of previous locations and did not see this one on it. It seemed too obvious so I never thought to guess. Of course, if I am wrong again, I look like a fool but I feel kind of confident. How many places in town would have an AED? Of all the ones that have not been guessed yet, I am going to say OLL Church.

  92. Bill

    July 23, 2011 at 12:11 pm

    How about the church on Gould St. across from the police station?

  93. Jeff Shilling

    July 23, 2011 at 12:15 pm

    On second thought, now that I scrolled up I see that Bryon kind of guessed OLL without actually saying that was his guess so now I am not so sure. However, I will stand with that for now.

  94. Julie Shilling

    July 23, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    Y & L Health Care Clinic? I believe it’s 25 Pompton Ave and across from Ray’s Pizza and Chase Bank.

  95. Virginia Citrano

    July 23, 2011 at 1:03 pm

    First, we need a translation from Rescue Squad-speak. An AED is an automated external defibrillator, which is the photo about 10 shots in.

    Then to the answers. Bill, the church on Gould Street is the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit. We don’t have an AED.

    Which leaves us with Jeff’s guess. Though he seems to question it, Jeff has has figured out that we are, indeed at OLL. But since Bryan paved the way for Jeff’s winning guess, we are going to award hats for Week 52 to both of them.

    I’m unveiling all off the Week 52 photos now. Thanks to all of you who have played, this week and throughout the year.

  96. Fred

    July 23, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    Jeff, Great job!

    As Virginia and I figured it was time to take a break from the contest she wanted to make sure that our final site was one that was obvious, but challenging.

    OLL was her obvious choice and I’m glad that this one went the distance and that it was by far the one location with the most comments.

    I would like to congratulate everyone that was a winner over the last 52 weeks. I hope everyone who took a couple of minutes to look at the clues and play along enjoyed themselves.

    Enjoy the rest of the summer.
    fred

  97. Jeff Shilling

    July 23, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    Bravo and thank you to Virginia and Fred for a very educational and fun year of this contest. Also for the quality web site that you work so very hard to keep current Virginia. Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next.
