Title: Siteride.com is GONE
Post by: TRJ_22487 on February 18, 2012, 07:11:41 AM
One of the best sources of vintage retail in Connecticut/New York/New Jersey fifteen years ago suddenly vanished from the web this year.
The site literally had thousands of pictures both ground and aerial, almost all of it stuff that is no longer the same.

I particularly loved the site because it dealt with an area of the country I used to visit monthly in the 1990's with my Father, and now I haven't been in nearly ten years, given the economy, and of course I've aged, moved out on my own, so I don't travel with my dad anymore. The website was like a trip back in time, just a short time ago, but it was the way that I remember Connecticut, Jersey and such. Looking at these pictures instantly shoots me back to my childhood, to being ten years old again, when times were still great.

And now all of those pictures are gone. Sadly, all gone.

Well, most of them.

About two years back I went through the siteride archive and saved about 200 of my favorite shots. I wish I had saved so many more, instead of just posting links to this site. Now, none of those links work.


In all likelihood siteride.com will never come back. Mostly likely it disappeared because the domain has simply finally expired.

Here are some of the few pictures I did save, grouped by town and state.
If anybody else has any more of the siteride pictures, please please please post them


These pictures were all taken between 1997-2001

Thank you for the Siteride pictures.   They bring back many memories. The Milford, CT Bradlees pictured actually was in Orange, CT.  It is now Kohl's.

I did notice with siteride that often the listed town would actually be a neighboring one. Thanks for the correction






Sadly the above post is all that I saved. There were hundreds of other photos that likely will be lost forever.
I can still see a few that I linked to through google image search, but they are smaller than the originals were. What a shame.

Thank you so much for saving these shots! I was feeling nostalgic a few weeks back and went onto Siteride to go look through some old pictures when to my dismay, they were mysteriously gone. I hope they aren't truly gone, perhaps the domain hasn't been paid for in a while. Anyway, it's great to see these fantastic 1990s shots of mostly long-gone looking chains. Siteride is practically an AFC tradition and valuable resource as well as the greatest picture database for the CT, NJ and NY regions.

Of all these pictures, might I add the only one that looks 1:1 the same today is the Stamford Dairy Queen.

Amazing work!

I know they were just doing their jobs, it was probably a mundane task for them, but whoever took these pictures were the ones that truly did the fantastic job. It is impressive that they are all film shots, but well transferred to digital, at a time when the internet was still relatively infant, and upload speeds were much slower.
They did what we all wish we'd thought to do in our own areas at that time or even earlier.

Great stuff, I was able to squeeze a bunch more out of google I had linked to before they vanished

Mall at Mill Creek, Secaucas, NJ (now a sad looking strip mall)

Syosset, NY Kmart

The other images are a bit more random, for the most part I'm not sure what locations these are, a few i put in the filename,
others are alternates of locations in the original post.

This was a long abandoned Bradlees by the time Siteride even got to it. Staten Island, NY on Forest Ave. Listed as a proposed Lowes.
There was supposed to be a different Bradlees that opened in Staten Island on May 4th, 2000 in a former Caldor, I don't know if that happened.

http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=lowes%20staten%20island%20ny&ie=UTF-8&tab=il
I believe this is the present day layout of this plaza. It has been repaved, and the Lowes building is on the other side of the lot.
I think the Kohl's building is where the Bradlees building in these pictures once was.
Obviously the power lines are the same, and you can see the same chain link fence between the road

I remember hearing about this site back in the day.

Anyone tried Wayback Machine?

Wayback Machine only can show text, if an image is no longer on the server it will not show up


Found another one
Fairfield, CT
This photo shows the aerial of the Bradlees/Stop&Shop plaza shown in the top set of pictures, as well as the Caldor plaza next to it
