The men and women who made a memorable impact on our hometown, Nutley, New Jersey
By Anthony Buccino
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.
The 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. Buccino tells you about a few of them (nearly 200!), some you may know and many you will not forget.
