West Side Presbyterian Church

Reviewed By ERA818 - Woodland Park, New Jersey

Worshipful, quiet and enjoyable. Can be visited on weekdays,during office hours or at Sunday services (9:15 am, 10 am and 5:30 pm). Welcoming staff and welcoming congregation. As with any church there is no fee or expected contribution; of course contributions are well-received but not necessary at all to visit or attend services. Ask to see the public art gallery - adjacent to the main entrance. This church also has several acclaimed music programs. Ask about them or see the church website, "westside.org"

This Rock is large, brownish and sturdy. It is nice looking so what else am I supposed to say it is a Rock. It is not like the Rock of Gibraltar. Don't hit it with your car. What? It's a rock, I think I am loosing my mind spending my time on this.

Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park

The history of the City of Paterson includes its beginnings as the ambitious project of Alexander Hamilton and the Society for Establishing Useful Manufacturers (S.U.M.) in 1792 at the Great Falls, the early development of water power systems for industrial use, and the various types of manufacturing that occurred in the District's mills into the 20th Century. These included cotton fabrics, railroad locomotives, textile machinery, jute, and silk spinning, weaving, and dyeing, among many others. The Great Falls also represents compelling stories of the lives of immigrants who labored in the mills, those who owned and operated manufacturing concerns and became wealthy, and the quest of laborers and the labor movement for better working conditions and pay. Immigrants still settle today in Paterson to pursue their versions of Hamilton's vision, creating a diverse and vibrant culture.

First time I visited the Falls was last year and I was pleasantly surprised. However, there was litter scattered about and the garbage baskets were overflowing. I don’t know if there are food carts, bathroom facilities or on site maintenance in the park but that may boost visitor attendance.

For over 20 years my office was only two doors down from this large bowling and entertainment place but I seldom set foot inside. Last week I took my two pre-teen grandsons there on a day when school was not in session and they had a good time bowling while I watched and cheered for them. Bowling has gotten expensive and there is no discount here for kids. Plenty of parking in their dedicated lot.

Demarest Farm

Reviewed By mrcarats - Brooklyn, New York

just finished reading some of the reviews that had rated this place poor-terrible. I noticed these were all reviews dating back a number of years. I am glad someone at the farm must have been paying attention to all the negative stuff and worked on improving it. I was just there Sunday Aug 6th. Yes it was crowded. but found that they had organized sufficient parking. They have 3 hayrides up to orchard so the wait is no longer more than 5-10 minutes.
The bag we were given holds about 12 lbs of peaches. Although most were still hard and thankfully so. As there is no way we could have finished them all before they rotted had they been completely soft. Also they did not seem to mind people noshing on peaches as they picked as opposed to other places where they ask you not to eat as you pick. Peaches were delicious. For $30,(5$ per person entrance plus 10$ for the bag) we got about 13 lbs of peaches to take home plus whatever we ate while we picked. A little pricier than your local fruit store but well worth it. The peaches are delicious. If you are there with little kids they have a small petting zoo (some goats llamas or alpacas not sure which and a pig) all running around in a little corral keeps the little one entertained for an additional 40 minutes maybe longer if they do not get bored quickly. as someone else mentioned don't bother buying the wafers they sell as animal feed from what i saw the animals weren't interested. All in all a good time if you don't have to drive far to get there. We actually stopped there just to break up a little road trip we were on. Would consider going back after labor day for apple season.

Ok, it's an actual farm with a well supplied market of fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy products, and any other freshly made treats you can think of. AND they have animals (separate from the farmer's market of course) that you can feed and pet. It's just a good time wandering around and checking out what they offer. AND the freshly made donuts are to die for

We are a family of 7 and this appealed to all the various ages. We had so much fun trying to find keys, crack codes, and open locks. We were all able to contribute to the overall solution. Ultimately we solved the problem with 21 seconds remaining. The place itself is clean and bright. The staff was friendly and supportive. It was a very enjoyable experience and is a place that we are looking forward to visiting again!

The Hermitage

Reviewed By robcurtross - New York City, New York

The Hermitage, a National Historic Landmark and house museum, incorporates a stone house that was visited during the Revolutionary War by General George Washington. It was also the site of the marriage of Aaron Burr and Theodosia Prevost. Its picturesque Gothic Revival design dates to the 1847–48 renovation by the architect William H. Ranlett.

The grounds are pleasant, and from time to time there are special events, including Civil War re-enactments.

Last month I attended the antique British car and motorcycle gathering, Classic Triumph, MG, Austin-Healey, Jaguar, Lotus, Morgan, tvr, Mini, Sunbeam, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, and other British automobiles were on display.

The lecture series can be very educational; check the website to see what is on offer.
