If the store ever closes, I wonder if this building might make a good candidate for school expansion. I heard that the school district was once interested in the old Arnold Constable Building for Pre-K through 3rd. In the end, Bergen Community College bought it. Lost opportunity.

Funny, I was in WM yesterday for lunch right about 12 noon....not too crowded, was able to sit at the counter. There was a couple in there with an elderly man, who they told the workers there was in his 70's and hadn't been there to WM in about 30 years

Hackensack Discussion / Overcrowding in School District

Some of the increase might be due to families doubling up in units, but probably less than you think.

I suspect that if someone looked in detail at the enrollments, you'll simply find that more one and two-family homes are occupied by families with children, and less by empty-nesters. The older folks are dying off or retiring out of Hackensack, and houses are selling.  And more families with children are living in apartments because of the housing crisis --- mortgage rules are tougher and people can't qualify for mortgages. Plus rents are way up and salaries aren't, so people can't even afford to save money to buy a house. They are trapped, as I am, renting.

Hackensack doesn't need to build a single unit to hit 50,000 population, because the number of people per unit that had been going down for decades is going to go up. Or it has already gone up.  Watch when the next census comes out, Hackensack will be at 50,000 or very close to it.
