Howard Zimmerman, age 88, of Livingston, passed away due to COVID-19 on November 4, 2020.

Howard was born in Brooklyn, New York, but spent most of his childhood in Rockville Centre, New York. He attended the University of Richmond, obtaining his B.S. in business in 1954.

Howard married his camp sweetheart, Barbara Sturtz, just before being sent to Rome, Italy on U.S. Army assignment.

After his military service, Howard worked several jobs before joining Kaysam Corporation of America. Rising through the ranks, Howard and two partners purchased the company and then later sold the business to Norcross Footwear. He ended his work life buying back a division of the original company and running the company with his daughter, Diane.

Close the Schools

As daily COVID-19 cases continue to climb in Livingston, it is time to reassess how our children will complete the rest of school through the calendar year.

We fully understand the value of the in-person experience for students, and the burden it puts on working parents when their children stay home on weekdays. And we are glad that our students were able to spend some time physically in school these past few weeks and months. But New Jersey’s daily case counts are skyrocketing to levels higher than have ever been recorded. It is no longer safe for students and faculty to spend unnecessary time in classrooms.

Livingston Philanthropies Director Urges Residents to Buy or Donate to Help Homeless

Article Image Alt Text

Jeff Friedman, founder and director of Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI), is urging residents to buy new items or donate funds to LPI to help the homeless. “With winter fast approaching, and the pandemic ramping up again and causing even greater economic adversity, you can make an immediate impact to help the homeless,” he said.
He noted that residents may take advantage of “rampant online sales” and purchase new winter coats and jackets, hats, scarves and gloves for the homeless and profoundly poor. “Although we started out years ago with a coat drive, this season, because of the pandemic, we cannot accept used items, as we did in the past. However, we can accept gently used items that have been professionally cleaned and are still in cleaner bags.”

The Livingston Planning Board, at a special meeting on Thursday, November 5, finished hearing testimony on a development application at Northfield Center and gave the multi-use proposal preliminary approval.

Attorney Matthew Posada represented the applicant, Livingston Builders, LLC, in the application to create a mixed-use residential and retail development. The applicant proposes to consolidate three existing lots into one parcel at 531 South LivingstonAvenue. The property includes the site of the former Northfield Baptist Church sanctuary at the corner of South Livingston Avenue and East Northfield Road, and adjacent retail buildings on South Livingston Avenue and East Northfield Road.

The plan calls for the demolition of three existing buildings, including the church and two retail buildings on East Northfield Road. A onestory building on South Livingston Avenue, which once housed a bank and now houses a dental practice, will remain and be renovated.
