Nutley Notables by Anthony BuccinoNutley Notables - The men and women who made a memorable impact on our hometown, Nutley, New Jersey

The township of Nutley, New Jersey, accumulated a wealth of celebrated and eccentric people who over-shadowed the salt-of-the-earth folks who lived here, raised their families and built the town into the place that Norman Rockwell only dreamed of illustrating for the cover of the Saturday Evening Post. Buccino tells you about more than a few of them (nearly 200!), some you may know and many you will not forget.

Featured individuals run the gamut from politicians to high school coaches and athletes; from notorious personalities to beloved entertainers to the fellow in the local shop to the artists and writers who toiled long ago and today. Their images and stories document the unique contributions they've made that shaped Nutley today.

Sister Dressed Me Funny

Tales about, of all things, a naked statue and the catholic school tie, Italian American family roots and that dress his sister made him wear. 

Buccino's essays cut close to the edge of humor, humiliation and heartbreak chronicling education by the strictest nuns in the world at a school where the statues of saints were said to dance the Twist if you prayed real hard. A wistful reminiscence of life on the farm with chicken coops and too many cats in what is now at the very least suburbia; and, of course, that dress his sister made him wear.
