NUTLEY, N.J. -- Leaving his keyboard and camera for a brisk morning walk, local author Anthony Buccino will lead the Walk and Talk through Nutley parks on Sunday, 8:30 a.m., Aug. 20, 2017.
Enjoy a refreshing three-mile roundtrip walk from the pre-opening Nutley Farmers Market, Municipal Parking Lot 1, William St. and Franklin Ave., through Nutley parks along the Third River to Kingsland Park and back.
A Nutley resident for four decades, Buccino and will talk at brief intervals about Nutley history, the Nutley Sons honored throughout the Memorial Parks, Nutley notables, the Kingsland Manor, the Vreeland House, and growing up near these parks in the good old days he’s written about in several of his books. Folks who want to only walk are encouraged to do so at the risk of missing out on historic tidbits.
The author has just published his fifth book about town, Nutley Snapshots In Plain View, volume one of nearly 200 photos around the township. His other books include Nutley Notables, Nutley Sons Honor Roll, Belleville and Nutley in the Civil War and Yountakah Country. Copies are available online. Bring along your copies of his book for him to sign at the end of the walk.
RSVP on Meetup or just meet at the Greenutley tent at 8:15 a.m., for this scenic 3-mile loop through our Nutley parks.
