its a BS list.  take out property crime.   then rank the places.   Mantua Twp is at the bottom. 4 violent crimes, but hundreds of property crimes.  because they have a big drug problem there so petty crime is rampant.   this list means nothing.

The list is somewhat deceptive because it strongly penalizes towns with large retail developments.  For instance, Paramus scored worse than Irvington.  Now, if anyone actually believes that Irvington is a quieter and safer town than Paramus, you've got rocks in your head.

Wayne and Eatontown also have abysmal scores, and both have major malls.  Hackensack would actually score higher, if not for our heavy retail.

I left Motor Age in 1981. I dont know when they moved to Bogota.
good observation, Homer.  The County should pay for most or all of any intersection reconfiguration for Byrne, Esplanade, and Passaic Street.
Isnít Passaic Street a County Road? If Iím correct, the County would be the key player here.
At least 20 years overdue. Nice work, Mayor & Council and citizen advocates who pushed the issue. 3. Park & Passaic

And what's 50 years overdue and EXTREMELY NEEDED is to align The Esplanade with Byrne Street (at Passaic Street) and put a traffic light there. This requires the cooperation of Maywood. I recall that it has been discussed in the past, but no agreement has ever been made.

Since I now live in Maywood after 11 years in Essex County, I could help in the lobbying for that. The two municipalities should split the cost, with Hackensack paying 60% (not 50%) because Byrne Street is located entirely in Hackensack, while the Esplanade runs the border.
