I think this is the tag. Passed it last Summer and had to double back and take a pic, the color really is striking in real life, phone cameras don't do it justice.

A character in a book by Kenneth Grahame may have lived in a Hall on this Lane.

Yay, that's it, a rather large diorama where the railtracks cross Toad Lane in Ringoes.

Here is what would have been the additional clue:

Even Doc could get that one;

New tag

What do Santa Claus, "In Hoc Signo Vinces," and "The Face that Launched a Thousand Ships" have in common?



Cool earlier tag, Jimmr. I had fun checking out the diorama for a while until my hands lost all feeling.

That was a rel brain teaser. I was going to give up, but rose to the occasion, landed on the correct web page, and figured it out in the nick of time. Well, almost-- too late to go get it

I'm at the address now Google maps sent me to and it's clearly not the right one. My hands are cold.

Nice puzzling, gents! The building is brand-spanking new, so the old address may still be kicking around the Internet.

The address on the church's web page is
Ss. Nicholas, Constantine & Helen
Greek Orthodox Church
80 Laurel Ave.
Roseland, New Jersey 07068

Google Maps directs "80 Laurel Ave. Roseland NJ" to 80 Laurel Ave. in Livingston; it's the same Laurel Ave, but about a mile away on the other side of 280. It gets it right if the query address is "80 Laurel Ave. 07068", and the map on the church "Contact Us" has it righr as well. I'm sure you all know that by now.

Anyway, really nice new buildings, and sorry to miss you stbob, could only have been a couple of minutes.
