Hackensack Discussion / Re: Arena Diner
« on: December 05, 2018, 09:54:23 AM »
I haven't been there in many years myself (either Arena or Heritage). When I was part time driving for Mr Taxi in the early 90's the parking lot of the Arena was one of my "waiting" spots. Of course I would take a break there for an egg sandwich and coffee as well. The Heritage was my go-to spot when I worked at Guy Ross Chevrolet in the late 80's. The Chit Chat I haven't been to, since it was Triboro, but I've heard it's not that great

Wow I wonder what it's going to look like...and what finally brought this on. Will they remove the payphone by the door?  :P

Hackensack History / Re: Essex St pizzeria

As suspected, the pizzeria was in that little strip of stores, which at the time included a barber shop. As it turns out, my future father-in-law owned that pizzeria. And a relative of his owned the barber shop. And yes, they did sponsor little league baseball in town. Such a small world...he also told me a funny little story that his one time delivery car was a Chevy Vega, which dies going up Essex St and they decided to just leave it on the side of the road! Haha

I hope if another deli goes in there they paint the building, that blue makes it look unappetizing

I drove passed there on Saturday, it looks very nice on the outside. Impressed

Craig is a great guy, I saw him a few times recently. I reminisced with him about the old days, when I would ride my bike there in the late 70's to buy imported punk records.

Hey gang, visited this place on's run by a friend of my girlfriend. She's a very nice woman and is helping out the community with her studio. (It's a non-profit organization) In case you know someone looking for a place for children to learn how to dance, check it out. And it's close to B & W Bakery too, so a crumb cake isn't far away  :P

Disappointed he's only making $35 per hour instead of $39?  :-*
