My Tiny Hometown on a UAL Aircraft

Tue Apr 16, 2019 3:19 pm

Hello All,

Just sharing a point of pride regarding United's #HerArtHere program, if you don't mind.

One of the three finalists for the New York/New Jersey designs features a depiction of Clinton, NJ's historic Red Mill. I's the top right one here, depicting the Mill right behind the cockpit windows:

Here's an actual picture of the Mill:

This may not seem like a big deal to most of you, but my whole town is less than 3,000 people in less than 1.5 square miles.

Being a lifelong resident, and very active in the community - plus my love for aviation - this is especially exciting for me.

Vote for the design if you would, please! It would mean so much to 2,700 people in Western New Jersey!!

One vote from me & good luck with it.

In Firefox i couldn't select any of the options but it did work for me in Chrome.

That looks quite nice! Lot of really good designs in there. Some that don't translate as well onto an aircraft necessarily, but I admire the creativity.

Thanks, Everyone!

I truly love the town I live in. It's the part of New Jersey that most people don't even know exists.

I actually life on top of the hill behind the Mill, and can walk there in about 3 minutes.

It's one of the most photographed buildings in NJ!

I’m from Boston but my grandfather lived in Clinton NJ when I was growing up, I have many great memories of getting ice cream (I forget the name but I’m sure you know it) or pizza at pizza como and going down to the mill. It’s a beautiful part of the country. One of my college friends happens to live there now so I returned for the first time in about 16 years last summer and it’s an even smaller town than I remember.

I’ll vote for it, it sure would be cool to see Clinton represented on a 757.
