MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ - Christine O'Grady, the newest addition to the Bayberry Lane neighborhood in Mountainside reached out to her neighbors to ask them to put out a bear or another stuffed animal in a front window or on their front porch so her two little girls could go on a bear hunt during this time of social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 This neighborhood, known as "Top of the Hill," took this quite seriously. The Ruban family went on a walk this afternoon and spotted 42 bears or other stuffed animals located in windows, porches, trees, bushes and benches.
