Nutley Snapshots – In Plain View, NJ, by Anthony Buccino

Local author, Anthony Buccino to lead Walk & Talk in Nutley Parks

NUTLEY, N.J. -- Leaving his keyboard and camera for a brisk morning walk, local author Anthony Buccino led the Walk & Talk through Nutley parks.

 Nearly two dozen walkers enjoyed a refreshing three-mile roundtrip walk from the pre-opening Nutley Farmers Market, Municipal Parking Lot 1, William St. and Franklin Ave., through Nutley parks along the Third River to Kingsland Park and back.

A Nutley resident for four decades, Buccino and will talk at brief intervals about Nutley history, the Nutley Sons honored throughout the Memorial Parks, Nutley notables, the Kingsland Manor, the Vreeland House, and growing up near these parks in the good old days he’s written about in several of his books.

Folks who wanted to only walk were encouraged to do so at the risk of missing out on historic tidbits.

The author has just published his fifth book about town, Nutley Snapshots In Plain View, volume one of nearly 200 photos around the township. His other books include Nutley Notables, Nutley Sons Honor Roll, Belleville and Nutley in the Civil War and Yountakah Country. Copies are available online. Bring along your copies of his book for him to sign at the end of the walk.

Formed in 2008, Greenutley is the Township of Nutley’s Go Green Committee comprised of the Mayor and Board of Commissioners, representatives from all five township departments and community members. The committee is currently under the auspices of Commissioner Dr. Joseph P. Scarpelli and the Department of Public Works.

Through education, events, and activities, Greenutley is raising awareness of the importance of green choices in our everyday lives and providing simple, effective ways for each of us to contribute to the sustainability of our community and our planet, including saving energy, recycling and reducing waste, eating local/organic food, and reducing pollution.
