Nutley Notables The Men and Women Who Made a Memorable Impact on Our Home Town, Nutley, New Jersey

Nutley Notables - The Men and Women Who Made a Memorable Impact on Our Hometown, Nutley, New Jersey - Volume One

This collection runs the gamut from politicians to high school coaches and athletes; from notorious personalities to beloved entertainers to the fellow in the local shop to the artists and writers who toiled long ago and today.

Their images and stories document the unique
contributions they've made that shaped Nutley today.

The northeastern township of Nutley, New Jersey, has accumulated a wealth of celebrated and eccentric people who over-shadowed the salt-of-the-earth folks who lived here, raised their families and built the town into the place that Norman Rockwell only dreamed of illustrating for the cover of the Saturday Evening Post. We tell you about a few of them, some you may know and many you will not forget.

Nutley Notables - The Men and Women Who Made a Memorable Impact on Our Hometown, Nutley, New Jersey Volume One includes Old West sharpshooter Annie Oakley who has a street here named in her honor; home-diva Martha Stewart who grew up on Elm Place and often writes of growing up in Nutley but has no street named for her; and others who may have to wait a while for street naming honors.

From Amazon reviews

This is a must-have book for anyone who loves Nutley or who is interested in the town. It is written with a winning combination of affection and scholarship. I grew up in the town and it was wonderful to rediscover people who were figures in the town when I was younger - kind of like coming home again. It was equally wonderful to discover people I never knew about. I'm ordering additional copies for my friends who grew up in Nutley too.


This Would Make a Great Gift Book

The packaging is professional. The cover design is attractive, though I wish there was more information as to the book’s content, as this book would have appeal for stores, museums, and the like in Nutley as well as throughout New Jersey, I would like to see some copy on the back cover that shows potential buyers what’s inside and why they would enjoy this book.

This would make a great gift book.

You have compiled a diverse collection of mini-biographies here; it certainly is interesting to see how many famous and noteworthy people were born or lived in your town. You have clearly done a lot of research in putting this book together; I would prefer to see more usage of authoritative books, newspapers, etc., and less reliance on web sites like Wikipedia.

Good job with grammar and proofreading, though I did catch occasional errors. The formatting and layout of the interior of the book is excellent.

I appreciated the many photographs you included, though I wish a few of them could be reproduced a bit more clearly. You have a good web site to market this and your other work; you might want to hire a designer to give it more visual appeal.

 An informative read

Great book that helps you understand Nutley's great forefathers and current notables and why the Township is one of the best in the nation. Needs a better editor, but the info is great.
