A LOOK BACK



Check out the view on Myrtle Avenue in Ridgewood in this 1950 photo from the Ridgewood Times archives! Back then, trolleys were the way for most Ridgewood residents who didn’t own a car to get around town. The Ridgewood Theater showed “My Man Godfrey” and “Three Smart Girls”; the ornate marquee of the now-landmark theater fell during a blizzard in 1969. The theater itself played its last picture show nearly a decade ago and is being redeveloped.
