Fake stone panels

We had to demo our entire exterior chimney and we're now ready to rebuild it. Because of the increased footings, effort, weight and cost, we're looking at different alternatives to real stone. We'll frame it with wood and plywood. Originally was looking at doing a cedar shingle exterior, but also thought of fake stone. Has anyone had experience with some of the faux stone panels out there? They say some look very realistic and some don't.


thanks for the help!

Hallmark Store next to Shoprite

Just heard a disturbing story that I hope isn't true. Apparently the owner of the former Hallmark store next to Shoprite was in poor health prior to closing. The landlord wouldn't honor a new lease if the business was sold to a new owner because Shoprite wanted to expand into that space. That means that the former owner got totally screwed after 40 years of hard work and at a time when he really needed the money for his medical care. Does anyone know about this?

Getting to Route 80 from Washington

I like my new town of Washington but it takes me a good half hour to get to route 80 East and most friends and family are in Bergen and Morris counties. I take 57 to 46 to 80. Just wondering if there is a quicker way to get to 80 that I don't know about. Thanks in advance!
