1920s Main St image and 1901 Hackensack vicinity map

The Main St shot looks familiar, but I couldn't find it in the database. Mr. Editor?

The map doesn't show very much.

great old shot.   on the left side, the corner buildings remain.  the Lyric Theater building was torn down and the one story building is there now.  moving south, the 3 story building is having a gut rehab done now, the facade was stripped off.  the old steelwork that supports the front of the building is huge.   next building south is the Kresge building, the precursor to Kmart.  and the last building in the photo on the left is the old Oddfellows building, now the junk store.   above the junk store is the original Oddfellows hall.   very few have been up there in probably 50 years.   It is absolutely amazing up there.  Hopefully if development gets moving someone will take a look at that space and do something with it.  its a step back in time.
