Journeys into River Edge

Here’s something to contemplate and talk about when the family gathers over Christmas (whether in person or virtually)(posted December 23, 2021) :

The other day I received an email asking me about Prospect Avenue in River Edge (see the post card).

I have never heard of a Prospect Avenue in town. Is the name or the look in the picture familiar to anyone (maybe Summit or Bogert north of Roosevelt?). Does that look like River Edge (in the day) to you ? Or was it mislabeled ?

Interesting.

What do you think ?

Hope everyone is well. All the best for a Merry Christmas and a happy (and healthy) New Year.
