Fair Lawn - The Book By Jane Lyle Diepeveen & Cornell Christianson

Two local residents, Jane Lyle Diepeveen & Cornell Christianson, got together to keep the history of Fair Lawn intact and to make the people who live and/or work in Fairlawn appreciative of the depth of the town. To do this, they researched the annals of the beginnings as well as interviewed current businesses, politicians and librarians. One of the things that they discovered was that Milton Berle purchased a house in Fairlawn. While Mr. Berle did not actually live in Fair Lawn, he purchased it for his mother and was a frequent weekend visitor to see her.

Among the prominent people in Fair Lawn, they touched upon NJ State Senator Bob Gordon, Freeholder Chairman David Ganz, Jay Koransky of Spivak Lighting and many fellow Rotarians. It was a little upsetting to note that they had bypassed my good friend Al Zuckerman who had a park named in his honor. Before he passed away, Al was active in many of the sporting areas involving kids and ran the charity circus for the Knights of Pythias.

There will be a book signing on Thursday, February 20,2014 at Columbia Bank, 19-01 NJ 208, Fair Lawn from 6 - 8 PM. Food and beverages will be provided. The next scheduled signing will take place on Wednesday, March 19, 2014 at the Dutch Tavern House, 24-07 Fair Lawn Avenue from 4 -6 PM. For further details, call 201 796 9886.

Books will be available for purchase at the signing events, at many booksellers and at www.legendarylocals.com or call 888 313 2665
