LOL Now I GET what my grandfather was talking about!
From Jersey City you can see The Pulaski Skyway that the Martian Tripods were said to be straddling... ...same with the Holland Tunnel... that runs between Jersey City & Downtown New York City @ Canal St. ("Chinatown")
Pop was right... "If there were Martians as described in the radio enactment --- my mom et al should have been able to simply look up and SEE Them! Obviously there Were NOT!" thanx for prompting me to search for the archive... it just filled in another piece of the "FOREST GUMP" puzzle in which I live.
Raymond Blvd in Newark leads up to the Art School I attended during the early 70's as described, from Paulette's house, the Machine could have "almost brushed the house as they walked passed"
BTW.. in the Speilberg/Cruise 2005 movie version, you can see the raised pylons of the Pulaski Skyway towering over Cruise's house while he was playing catch with his teen-aged son...
Interesting that Speilberg held so close to the locations...
I listened to about half of it. Quite interesting. I suppose we are more skeptical these days, but though it was interesting with the historical element, it wasn't particularly convincing. Which would seem to back up the assertations that it was a broohaha stoked by the newspapers.
I think all of the characters I heard were played by 3 people, one of them being Welles.

The PBS Documentary fills in more of the back ground.. ..about the series of recent discoveries and events that had Mars in the News (& on people's mind) that pretty much "primed the pump" for how the events unfolded.
