3. Alexander’s mural
For decades, a 200-foot-long mural made of enameled steel served as a landmark for drivers at the intersection of routes 4 and 17 in Paramus. In the 1960s, the 250-ton marvel of postwar expressionism from Polish artist Stefan Knapp. Knapp's artwork was often known for its large scale. A Polish national and Holocaust survivor who died in 1996, he was photographed for Life magazine in the 1960s wearing skis to traverse the surface of the expansive mural-in-progress in an airplane hangar. But after the retail giant went out of business in the early 1990s, the mural came down. Now, you find the mural on display at TheArtFactory.
