Ridgewood NJ, Residents of streets near the Schedler property have informed us of the seemingly increased number and frequency of Ridgewood Police Department vehicles patrolling along West Saddle River Road during the past several weeks.
Although happy with the increased police presence in their neighborhood, some area residents are concerned that the heightened police activity may be in response to an undisclosed threat against the historic Zabriskie-Schedler House.
Many negative comments regarding costs associated with restoration of the historic home have been directed at Village Council members during multiple public meetings, and contained in numerous letters to the editor of The Ridgewood News. Frequent critics of restoration expenditures include resident Rurik Halaby, former Councilman Jeffrey Voigt (who is rumored have moved out of Ridgewood), and current Councilwoman Siobhan Winograd.
Was an anonymous threat against the Zabriskie-Schedler House received? We guess that’s a real possibility. If a threat was received, we are glad to learn that the police seem to be on top of things. However, despite the reported increase in police activity, our staff still strongly encourages every resident of the neighborhood near Schedler to remain vigilant. The Ridgewood Police Department should be notified immediately if suspicious activity is observed taking place on or near the property (especially if someone is seen with an incendiary device or gas can in hand).
Remember, some of the “naysayers” believe if the historic house didn’t exist, the property could be fully developed as a large athletic complex, fitted with artificial turf, permanent field lighting & stadium style bleachers, and lighted scoreboards.
Keep alert ladies & gentlemen!
