About Us - LandingNewJersey.com
started in September 2002. We're a voluntary community public
service, started by a resident of Landing. We have enlisted others in the area who can contribute to
the site through their knowledge of Landing history or their involvement
in our community. We recently added 2 new pages of Port Morris history
written by a 2 long time residents, we gave a local family a page to show
historical photos of their Landing business, and several other pages have historical photos
submitted by readers. We are a real community website by Landing NJ
people, for Landing NJ people. Over 50 present & former Landing
residents have written remembrances that appear on our Letters
Page. We'll be adding even more pages and info over
the next few months. Here are some basics about us:
1. This site seeks to serve
our Landing & Port Morris NJ Community by providing a central place for all town info;
listings of retail stores, service businesses, current Landing weather, school info, pages of
historic Landing photographs, Roxbury Township info, Lake stuff, links
to community websites and much more.
Most of the historical articles on the site were researched and written by your humble Editor, always noting sources at the end of the article. Increasingly, we see our work being . . . err . . . 'borrowed' without credit by other websites, by sellers of historical items on eBay, and most interestingly by Staff writers for both the Star-Ledger and Daily Record Newspapers in their various Community Profile, Community Snapshot, Day in the Life of . . . and so forth. If you want to use material from this site, just ask nicely, and all will be well. Otherwise, I'll put "The Old-Man of the Marina" on your case, he will find you and force you to listen to hours of Hoppie the Lake Hopatcong Monster stories, all gathered from boaters who had spent too many hours on the Lake in full sun with an ice chest of cheap Wine coolers.
(These are real individuals visiting the website. "Visitors" is defined by my hosting service as those who view at least 2 pages of the website. Each visit produces dozens of "hits", i.e., graphics, pages or images within the site that are viewed. Quoting "hits" to show site popularity is meaningless and misleading. For example, in May 2004 we had 37,211 'hits', but 2,377 actual unique individual visits. "Page Views" are a bit more telling, but still misleading. "Visitors" are the real and most honest gauge)
