Bogart and Hansen, Montclair, NJ
A lot has changed in Montclair, New Jersey, where my father's family came from. But Bogart and Hansen, the local electrical supply and contracting business at 568 Bloomfield Avenue, has stood in the same place for as long as I can remember, even as other businesses in Montclair Center have come and gone.
Bogart and Hansen was founded in 1958. For several years - decades, really - their red-stained wood facade has remained a consistent presence on the avenue. I've gone in there to get lamps rewired and extension cords repaired.
When you live in the greater New York area and you need camera equipment, a lot of people go to B&H in Manhattan. When you live in Essex County, New Jersey, and you want something electrical done, you go to a different B&H! :-D
