Here is a picture of Montclair Winters Past: the former American Ironworks at 194 Bloomfield Ave., which added charm and the promise of undiscovered treasures to the avenue before it was purchased to make way for a condo building in 2005, and then abandoned.

This picture was sent to us by Gordon Emrich, brother of the late Michael Emrich, the entrepreneurial antiquarian who owned Americana Ironworks and passed away this past year at the age of 49.

  1. * What does that mean, when the town attorney labels a memo from the town planner to the town planning board as “privileged”?
    * Why would the bank want to hold on to this property?
    * Why doesn’t somebody finish the building?
    * Does the current owner pay 11 x $2000 a year in taxes?
    * Can’t somebody make it into the “affordable housing” that other people want to buy undeveloped land for, and build several private houses on?
    * Why do we all know that that neighborhood is “the most crime-riddled section of town” year after year?
