Maxwell House plant in Hoboken. It closed in 1990. It was replaced with the Maxwell Place condos.

North & Leavitt - Chicago ca.1959. Jays Potato Chips, Chicago's favorite, until the manufacturing plant was moved out of Illinois several years ago.

Lucy The Elephant was moved in 1970 and named a National Historic Landmark in 1976. She originally stood a few blocks away and closer to the ocean in Margate. Thanks to Tales of the Jersey Shore!

The Arcola Amusement Park on the Paramus/Rochelle Park border. It was built along the Hudson River trolley line in the Arcola section of Rochelle Park/Paramus in 1926, but burned down just a few years later in 1929 and never rebuilt.

It's insanely crazy how much this has changed in the last 30 years. From abandoned rail yards to luxury condos and a marina... The raodway in the center (going up and down) is the cobblestone roadway present today, leading to the CNJ terminal building (where you get the ferry to the Statue of Liberty) Jersey City - Abandoned, bleak Central Railroad yards and Morris Canal. (Liberty State Park is here now). 1974 by wavz13, via Flickr
