Hackensack History / These are the stores i remember on Main street.
« on: April 28, 2008, 03:38:05 AM »
Red's Italian store, and right next door was a soda fountain store, i can't remember the name..Marcus Jewelry, Army Navy store, Graysons Furniture store, Modern bakery , Sonnys Lunchonette, The Five and ten cent store, A&P, The Dairy Maid, Record King, Relic Rack, Arnold Constables, Johns Bargain Store, Grants, Woolworths, The Riviera Tavern, The Wagon Wheel, Ace Hardware, Whelans (where everyone hung out) Womwraths, Lerners...   There were so many more really great stores..I went to a dance studio that i think was called Star dance studio. All the side streets also had great shops..I used to go to a wonderful candy store called Jacks. Oh and B&W Bakery and The Dairy Queen. I adored Pacards and have a great picture of me sitting on Santa's lap. Main street was the place to be. It had everything. I loved going to the bus station to go to Palisades Park, the best place ever. My Aunt and my stepmother were telephone operators at the Telephone company on State St.

I grew up in Hackensack....birth to age 12 on Moore st...right behind Main st..then we moved to Spring Valley ave, a block from Summit Ave where my parents still was like 2 different worlds from the court house to Sring Valley Ave.. I hung out in Maywood where my grandparents lived. But i also used to sneak to the "other" side of town to hang out in the Union st park...Main st was the place to be when i was a kid. Did anyone see the movie called JERSEY GIRL? It takes place in Hackensack and she lived on top Foschini's Bakery...who had the best canoli's in the world. It's a great movie...i used to go pony riding in Foschini Park...and they had the best fireworks in the world. I loved Hackensack.

again, you are not reading my posts said, I'm also sorry that you don't realize how foolish you sound by saying that John Zisa does need to impress you....I'll try to make it a little clearer for you as you are obviously slow...I SAID, JOHN DOES "NOT" HAVE TO IMPRESS it now? You seem to be reading too much into my posts and haven't a clue what you are talking a war you are looking for? well sorry, you already lost! I DO NOT WONDER WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED WITH MY LIFE.....and my only regret is not persuing a carreer, period....I KNOW i would have made it, am verrrrrrrrrrry confident i would have made it and i have made it, just in a different way.... I sold over 75000 of my CDs and am quite happy with that....I take it that Simon irks you too? If ppl think he's bad, I should be a Judge....I guess you lie to ppl that suck? All you have really proven is that you are probably a brown noser and a person that can't be trusted. Listen, use your unwarranted anger elsewhere, on someone who gives a poop. You are barking up the wrong tree....and "I TOOK THE TIME" to visit Johns website just as i take the time to come can we get back to the issue here....HACKENSACK!

Critizing a post and giving someone some constructive critizism are 2 very different things....i take it you have never given an honest opinion in your life?  You have the wrong sense of mean spirited. Yes you have "the right" but it is not critizism saying that i am mean spirited, it is an a musician and teacher, i felt i would offer up some advice and i did not in any way shape or form tell John to pack it in so learn how to read a post properly!!!!!!! and your last sentence just shows your lack of intelligence and lack of knowledge of the music industry. I had no short comings....or if you want to call getting married and having kids short comings, well that is what i did and not that i am sorry but i do have regrets.... and how rediculous a statement that John need not impress me! you really need to try hard and not be in a chat where you do not know how to discuss much!

to the "guest"....First, i am far from a mean spirited person...second, i most certainly missed my calling...i was a voice teacher for many yrs and in a band and played in some very prestigious clubs in both NYC and Jersey but just never bothered to venture...a whole nother story...but anywho....I agree that none of the AI judges are (IMO) truely qualified to jugde singers but except for Simon (whose company funds the show) Paula and Randy are both musicians....Randy was the bass player for they are qualified musicians. and have many yrs in the "business" and have the credentials, i assure you. Just to awaken you also, i said John does "know" how to sing...i just was not impressed!
