The Artist Framer Building at 17 North Ave E in Downtown Cranford is a striking purple in color. I loved it the very first time I saw it.

The Cranford Town Clock from a different perspective. The shops behind it are in buildings dating back all the way to the beginning of the 20th century.

Built in 1893 by the Hess family, The Cranford Hotel's convenience to the railroad tracks made it a popular stop for businessmen. In 1946, the hotel was sold to the DiTullio family and remained in use as a hotel until the early 70's. It endures today as a favorite restaurant and meeting place - boasting a great filet mignon, authentic thin-crust pizzas, as well as a bevy of burgers, beers and sandwiches.

Btw, behind and to the right of the hotel, you can see a part of one of the large Cranford Crossing buildings.

Does anyone have pictures of the "downtowns" of Allendale, Upper Saddle River, Saddle River, Alpine, Closter, Haworth, and Bernardsville?

I don't think alpine has a downtown....

I can get pics of Rockaway, but that downtown is REALLY small

I also have pics of Denville downtown....

This is a great thread! I'll try to get some shots of towns I know up in the next few weeks: I'm thinking Ridgewood, Glen Rock, Allendale, Ramsey, Waldwick, Midland Park, and Fair Lawn. (Keep in mind that some of these towns have smaller downtowns than others.)

Early Sunday morning in downtown Cranford, near the intersection of North Ave and North Union Ave. The City Grind coffee shop is in the foreground, and in the distance, past the traffic light, you can see the Puff N' Stuff store, which specializes in tobacco products and other miscellaneous confections.

Hope that helps. Cheers!
Thanks for the tip...but in order to do that, you'd need the pic to be on a web page, right?
