Here we go

Nighthawk Books opens today at noon. That’s 212 Raritan Avenue, downtown Highland Park, N.J. We’ll be open from noon to midnight, Tuesday through Sunday.

Naturally, there are about ten thousand things I should have nailed down by now, but the past two months have already been a blur of ceaseless work. Time to put this operation on its feet and see how it goes.

If you’re in the area, come on by and say hello.

    Steve, will your book store have a web site for those of us on the left coast? Either way, good luck to you, and thanks.

    Hi Steven,

    Best of luck with your new ventures. I also wanted to tell you I was at the program in Westfield the last evening where you spoke about “The Last three Miles”. My parents grew up in Jersey City, and when they moved to the ‘suburbs'(elizabeth)! after getting married, every Saturday we drove to JC to see my grandparents and aunts and uncles that did not make the move. And my mother is Irish and my father is Italian (a dreaded combination)
    I found your description of JC of that time very interesting. My mother was supposed to go with me but could not make it, so the next day I saw my dad and told him of the stores you shared about Mayor Frank Hauge, his face lite up, telling me his version of stores when he was growing up. His father and friends would sit around the kitchen table and talk about him. His recolation is that Hauge was a great man, did alot for JC, but what does a 10 year old know in 1930!. When I mentioned Hauge’s involvment of the medical center, he shared his own stories, that Frank Hauge would walk around the hospital in the middle of the night wearing a white glove!
    I seems there is a pride to say you where from JC. I purchased the book for my parents and sure they will enjoy it as much as I did.

    All the best
    Denise
