Opening paragraphs.....................

     Just across the George Washington Bridge from Manhattan lies Bergen County, New Jersey, composed of towns such as Fort Lee, Englewood, Palisades Park, and Edgewater, to name a few.  Today Fort lee, whose splendid location stretches along the Palisades Cliffs, is a mass of high-rises, a spillover from Manhattan, but the Hudson River and the Palisades Cliffs are still as beautiful as I remember them when I was a kid.  In the 1950s there wasn't a high-rise to be seen.  The towns were more like villages, old-fashioned and unchanged for decades.
