Where In Verona Is It? Week 51


Share post:

There’s good news and bad news this week.

The bad news is that there are just two more weeks to win a signature MyVeronaNJ baseball cap for the Where in Verona contest–this week and next week are it, folks. The good news is that, even now,  it is not too late to win as a newcomer. Andrew Videtto cut through the fog of guesses by Beth Shorten, Kathleen Seubert, Jeff Shilling, Colin Boyle and Tina Caridad to come up with the winning answer last week, Annin Flagmakers, a fixture in Verona for almost 100 years.

Of course, if you look at Fred Goode‘s photos for this week and sigh in despair, there still may be a way to win a MyVeronaNJ baseball cap: Just vote for us in Intuit’s Love A Local Business campaign so that we win a $50,000 hiring grant. You can vote for us as many times as you like, through the Intuit Web site, Facebook, Twitter or by cell phone, by texting myveronanj to 244326. Every time you enter, you’ll need to give Intuit a reason why you love MyVeronaNJ.com, because Intuit’s judges are counting both votes and comments. The best comment about us every day will win a hat.

UPDATE: You can see all the clues now.

  1. Virginia enjoying a cocktail in the evening on the patio at Avenue Bistro on Bloomfield Avenue. (specific enough?)

  2. No to the boathouse and, unfortunately, no to Avenue Bistro. I’m only allowed brief breaks away from the computer and not allowed to write stories under the influence.

  3. ok, Kathleen and Beth, it’s getting late in the week so let’s get together on this. Through the magic of photo editing software, here is what I have so far as possibilities: picture 1.folded flag of some kind 2.some bushes in front of a building 3.pricker bush 4.? 5.some rocks on asphalt like a driveway 6.chain link fence 7.now here’s where the software really helped; a set of cement steps leading up to a building, white hand rails on both sides of the steps and a shed of some sort to the right of the building 8.driveway with white stripes 9.another view of the driveway with a ramp in the top right corner 10.picture of a building looking at a light that is on at night that is causing the glare but brick on the right and cement rectangular shapes on the left with a window near the top and bushes in front on the bottom. We had the community center so unless this is the back side or the annex building counting as a different location than before, I have not been able to place the building. The pictures that I said were a driveway, could also be a field. Outstanding photography by Fred by the way. This has been the best week yet for trying to figure it out.

  4. Jeff, I’m glad you are enjoying yourself. But,,,,,, 1. No, 2. yes, 3. Kind of, 4.confused? 5. yes, 6. yes, 7. yes, 8. no, 9. no, 10. yes

    Let the random guessing continue.

  5. No to Julie. No to first-time guesser Bill, though the guess is interesting. Beth, I can’t tell whether you guesses are directed at me or at your teammate Jeff. New clue going up in a minute.

  6. picture 11 is a fence possibly going around the HB field but I leave the official guess to others.

  7. The big white blur that is photo 10 really helps! ;P Jeff, Kathleen, I need your help! How about what USED to be Verona Inn?

  8. After driving around with Julie last night, looking at the front of buildings and not finding anything resembling the pictures, I will have to go with the back of HBW, primarily the “new” track and field area.

  9. I say that when we reach week 52 Kathleen, Jeff, & I should meet Fred (and you’re invited too Virginia) for a drink. We can all wear our hats!

  10. I had to run out so I figured I would do a drive by and sure enough, it is the back of HBW. Julie thought it was HB and wanted to check that last night but I said we already did HBW in past weeks. I guess sometimes parents should listen to their children. So picture 8 and 9 must be the track, not a driveway. Technically Beth guessed first although it took me, Beth, Kathleen and Julie to finally figure this one out so does that mean Fred wins again? Can’t wait to see what Virginia and Fred have in store for us for the final week.

  11. Could we be Mouseketeers instead? Jeff, I think you should pick the place, but we definitely need to get together for a celebratory drink. And I think Fred and Viginia should be honorary invitees. Will Fred take our photo (with hats of course!) and will it make it into week 53s MyVeronaNJ.com?

  12. Congratulations guys. Photo 8 is the track. Photo 9 is the grass hillside between the fence and the parking lot.

    Good luck next week.

  13. Just back from a baby shower in Mechanicsburg PA – Glad to see we were able to work it out. Bring on week 52!
