What would the Great Falls of Paterson look like with a submarine?
Don't laugh. It's an idea Paterson Mayor Joey Torres has floated for the endangered NJ Naval Memorial and the USS Ling.
Paterson Historic Preservation Director Gianfranco Archimede calls it a natural fit.
The USS Ling is currently marooned in the Hackensack River behind the old Bergen Record building in Hackensack and it's threatened by impending development.
Trouble is, how do you get it there? Ling Memorial Association President Gil de Laat says that's the hard and expensive part.
