Are there any plans for that huge space?

Maybe it's time to shed our Riverside Square false front and resurrect Frankie's Market or a Pine Brook Auction, Rt. 3 Drive In Flea Market type of shopping, haggling, eating and drinking beer experience at the former Pathmark before it becomes a giant size Starbucks or is divided into 25 Dunkin Donuts and a few banks  ;D

Hell, I'd settle for the old Hackensack Drive-In (minus the inspection station) that you could watch from the Rt 46 bridge. Better yet (and speaking of Rt 46), put the old Rt 46 Drive-In there - that was a great drive-in.

The people in the Oritani Motel could watch the flicks (until THAT gets torn down).

The New Earth restaurant at the Oritani had a good band and an interesting menu for a time back in the 1980's. My wife and I always enjoyed a night out and tried any place that looked interesting and might be on a par with the old New Bridge Inn our favorite dining spot not just for the food but for the folks who made it happen along with Frank the bartender.

The New Earth was serving a French menu and did their best to put you in a NYC type atmosphere with tuxedoed maitre d' s and the whole deal, only problem was that the French cuisine was good but served sparsely which I assume was the accepted way in France but left you as hungry as when you came in in Hackensack.

Back in the late '70's and early 80's there were two good restaurants in that neck of town. There was La Pace which was the upscale Italian restaurant located in the Continental Towers and the New Earth. Problem with the New Earth was that there was a constant change in management and ownership and you never knew which New Earth you would find when you walked in the door.

Thanks for the info Homer, I guess that answers the question as to why you could not get a satisfactory meal at the same restaurant on two different occasions.

The New Bridge Inn remained our favorite for a long time right up to the time it was sold. I have a painting from the bar area that I always admired that Chuck the former owner sold me when he was getting ready to do a major renovation and was changing the interior decorations.

We have not tried Sanzari's but I'm sure it is a fine restaurant.

may buy a multi-family in Hackensack some time in the next few years (and may start renting out there even sooner)

One "area" I have looked at is the Kinderkamack/Johnson area with all the condos (and the more house-filled area as you go West towards Fairmount) - so the Pathmark would have been in walking distance. That's what I like to do, I like to walk to get around and do stuff.
The Pathmark is closed now. Anybody got any idea if another supermarket is going to open up in the building? Anybody know when?

And how about the new bridge landing re-development? Will that include some sort of market/produce place? It seems all this transit-oriented-development been happening in the past 10-20 years always neglects a supermarket/grocerie of some sort. Yeah, make the neighborhood "liveable", but a grocerie is one of the most basic day-to-day necessities of a neighborhood. I don't need another Starbucks or Panera Bread. Anoying...

As a kid we would shop mainly at Valley Fair, but the Path Mark on Rt 17 was our "go to" supermarket for many years, I was saddened to see that one close too. A few years ago the one in Palisades Park closed and became a Korean supermarket too

I was hoping that shopping center would be rebuilt as combination retail with a few stories of residential on top, since the zoning now allows it.  I thought the former Pathmark could possibly be the first component to be rebuilt in that fashion.  Oh well.  I guess that's not Vornado's business plan

I remember that drive-in well. You could see the movies while headed west over the Hackensack River bridge....many times we'd sneak in that drive-in as kids, and the traffic was always so backed up on Saturdays getting into inspection too. It took forever to just get into Valley Fair on those days

I had to stop watching it. There's an epidemic of people "up-talking" these days and it makes me crazy.

You know what I mean. When people talk declaratively? But everything they say sounds like a question? Even though they are not asking you anything?

Ponderous. :o

I think someone mentioned the interrogatory aspect of her speech in the comments when they said she talked like a teenage girl.

Something else that she does that you shouldn't do..............

99 Ranch Market, a big California-based Chinese supermarket, opened on Wednesday in the Home Depot Shopping Center on Hackensack Avenue (in what was once a Pathmark). The dim sum, roasted ducks and other prepared food make the store the closest you can get to Chinatown without leaving New Jersey. There were free samples, but they were nothing special compared to what is available at any Korean supermarket on the weekends. There is a fresh fish department, and live crawfish were $4.99 a pound. See videos I posted on Instagram:
