‘Where In Verona Is It?’ The Reboot, Week 3

By on January 6, 2020

Michele Shiller-Beaulac won week 1 (Anthony Francos Pizza) and Beth Shorten won week 2 (Olive That And More!). Will week 3 of the reboot of “Where In Verona Is It?” be your week to win?

Every day this week, we’ll be posting Fred Goode’s photos of a location somewhere in Verona, and you’ll get to guess where it is. This week, we’re only posting one photo on day one, instead of the three that we posted during the opening days of the first two weeks. Don’t worry, there will be more as the week progresses.

As we’ve said before, the clues will only be posted here on the site (and not on MyVeronaNJ.com’s social media), and you’ll need to post your guesses here in our comments section. You must post under your real name and email address, so we know who to reach with the weekly prize: A MyVeronaNJ.com T-shirt. If nobody gets the correct answer by Friday night, Fred is the winner.

  13. Virginia Citrano

    January 7, 2020 at 9:57 am

    Funny, but no. Private residences are off limits.

  14. Virginia Citrano

    January 7, 2020 at 9:57 am

  20. Virginia Citrano

    January 7, 2020 at 12:58 pm

    Two different guesses for Mavis, but neither one is correct. Sorry.

  21. Virginia Citrano

    January 7, 2020 at 12:59 pm

  27. Virginia Citrano

    January 7, 2020 at 2:06 pm

    Joe, we hate to break it to you, but Carnevale’s has closed. They’ve been replaced by a Mavis tire shop. And as we told someone else earlier today, the photos are not of Mavis either.

    Hillcrest Farms

  33. Virginia Citrano

    January 7, 2020 at 7:23 pm

    No, Hillcrest Farms was week 1 of the original “Where In Verona”, and Fred Goode doesn’t believe in repeats. https://www.myveronanj.com/2011/07/25/where-in-verona-was-it-a-year-in-review/

  36. Virginia Citrano

    January 7, 2020 at 8:45 pm

  38. Virginia Citrano

    January 7, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    Verona Auto Repair on Bloomfield?

  40. Virginia Citrano

    January 8, 2020 at 9:58 am

    Not sure what you mean by Verona Auto Repair. If you’re guessing Alberona, we told the people who guessed Alberona yesterday that it’s not Alberona.

  41. Patrick

    January 8, 2020 at 10:23 am

    655 Bloomfield Ave, the old Lukoil Gas Station…assume that means it is still a no. lol

    Interesting guess. But no.

  59. Virginia Citrano

    January 8, 2020 at 6:10 pm

    It’s new, so it wouldn’t have been part of the original “Where”. But no, it’s not Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter Consignment Shop.

  61. Virginia Citrano

  85. Virginia Citrano

    January 10, 2020 at 8:52 am

    You can try it, but that’s still not the answer.

  86. Virginia Citrano

    January 10, 2020 at 8:55 am

    While we’ll admit that we don’t know much about M3 Crane (way out on Grove) we know that it’s not the answer. Sorry.
