For residents of those town, the loss of the elevator was more than just economics—it was a real punch in the gut.
I don't know what it is about the name 'Meadows;’ perhaps it conjures up memories of a very peaceful place.
Rounding a gentle curve just past Rosser, there were two things you could count on seeing. One was an African-type tree (it looks like it's from the plains of the Serengeti) in the field on the right hand side of the road.
Many of us will miss the Meadows elevator. It was the last one standing on that route after Marquette (another Paterson elevator) was pulled down on September 3rd, 2013.
