Nutley, New Jersey
You know you're from old Nutley if you ...
raced slot cars at Drewes Hobby Shop ... fished in the Mud Hole ... heard the bells of St. Mary's or Holy Family early in the morning ... took swimming lessons at ITT ... learned to drive and park in the ITT lot ... remember where you were when the ITT tower tumbled ... drove through Albino Village...

Two volumes for Nutley history lovers
Nutley Notables: The men and women who made a memorable impact on our home town, Nutley, New Jersey
By Anthony Buccino
The township of Nutley, New Jersey, 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. This new book profile nearly 200 town folks, some you may know and many you will not forget.
Our Nutley Notables include 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.
Featured individuals run 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.
Even the most ardent Nutley historian will find new surprises in this collection.
The author thanks the Nutley Historical Society and the Nutley Free Public Library for allowing access to their vast archives and experts in compiling this first volume of Nutley Notables.
