HACKENSACK - City officials are set to launch what they're calling the "Johnson Park revitalization project."

The public is invited to a groundbreaking ceremony at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at the park. The $1.3 million project will include the construction of an artificial-turf soccer field.

"We're very proud of this project," Mayor John "Jack" Zisa said in a news release. "This project will expand the recreational facilities of Hackensack, providing a place for residents to play soccer, enjoy the river, or just relax at the park."

Construction is expected to be completed by July.

Hackensack History / Hackensack Recollections: Article

I found this in my travels online.  It is an interesting article on Hackensack in the 30's and 40's.

Click:  Recolletions by Tom Munday

I would like to start an electronic journal of personal recollections of the city.  You may post them here and let me know if I may then store them in a more temporary archive.  I would also like to copy any old photographs of the city and city residents.  

Main Street: Opportunities and Eye Sores

If you are interested in any of the following real estate, please contact me or the number on the signs that appear in the pictures. †

If you are a realtor, you can add a full listing in the Classified Section on these message boards.

Above: Available. †Anyone interested?

Above: New management seems like they are finally giving this property a facelift. †It was horrible under the prior ownership. †Stay tuned.

Above: This facade is okay, but too many window signs, right?

Above: Why did Sears cement all of the windows? †Is this a jail or a department store? †We should ask them if they could add a mural or some ornamental design. †Comments please.

Above: This store recently burned. †See Record Article. †Does anyone know what will happen here? †It should not be boarded up indefinitely like the property that follows. †

Above: A Peter Tucci property. A Record Article recently addressed Peter Tucci's role in the development of Hackensack. †Click HERE to read the story. †(Requires free registration with The Record). This property has looked like this for years. †Until it's leased, it should be dressed up temporarily. † By the way, Naturally Good, seen on the right, is a great place to eat.

Ah,... much better for now. †Thanks Mr. Tucci.

Above: Former Lowitz store. †What's happening here? †Is it for lease? Sale?

Above: Available. †Anyone interested?

Above: Available. †Former Hackensack Bicycles Store. Anyone interested?

Above: These two are vacant eye sores. †Does anyone know if they are available? †Who owns them? They are next to the former Hackensack Bicycle Store.

Above: Available. †Anyone interested?

I hear Moss Lighting was purchased and/or condemned by the City to make room for a driveway to the municipal lot behind it. †Hopefully, this will increase foot traffic on Main Street.

Above: Fox Theater. †I understand this buidling is about to get torn down to make room for additional parking for Oritani Bank. †Click HERE to read a related Record article about this. (Requires free registration with The Record).

Above: Not a bad strip of property. †

Above: One of Main Street's newest additions. †

Another Peter Tucci property. †Vacant for years. †I understand it's available. †Any takers?

Above: Available. †Anyone interested?

Another new edition. †Good Luck!

Above: Available. †Anyone interested?

Above: A real "fixer-upper", but I think this corner property has tremendous potential. †It has tons of volume, one block from the court house, surrounded by great restaurants, including General Poors Tavern. †Take a chance!! †In the meantime, the property should be temporarily dressed up. †It looks horrible. †

Above: Available. †Anyone interested?

Above: The brick face was recently completed but I'm not sure what's happening here. †Next to 3 Brother's Deli (good place). †

Above: This was Relic Records which recently closed. †Read the Record article: Swan songs on Main Street

Above: Available. †Anyone interested?

Above: Chiller Theater and Relic Amusements. †It's a long story: Read the Record Article

Pictures of the homes to be torn down as well as a rendering of the new townhouses may be found at the following link:

Prospect Commons

Attn: HEDC:

All commercial real estate brokers may advertise on Hackensack Now for properties they are seeking to sell and/or lease in Hackensack.  There is no charge for the listing.  

Hopefully, this will generate some interest in properties on Main Street, Hudson Street and the surrounding areas and help spur the revitalization effort.

Many businesses are thriving on Main Street and tremendous opportunity exists for furture Main Street entrepreneurs.

All real estate offers should be posted in the Hackensack Now Classified Section.  Images of the property can easily be added to the listing.

Please email the editor if you require assistance.

Hackensack Discussion / Services for the homeless...
« on: April 03, 2004, 11:06:45 PM »
An interesting post turned up on the old message boards related to the topic of "homelessness".  The message is from Aaron Mighty, producer of documentary, in response to a post from "Sam the Answer Man". 

Sam wrote:

Weíve all heard the old theory that the homeless are lazy people who just donít want to work, and are actually happy being homeless. That theory has gained new credibility...,'

To read full topic thread, click here: Happy Homeless of Hackensack (post no new messages on old board)

Aaron responded:
Hi all,

As the producer of ďOne Happy MovieĒ (the documentary in question here) I just wanted to comment on the homeless man depicted in The Recordís article by Jim Beckerman in case anyone might come across this post.

The manís name was Dee Dee, and he was not sponging off of the welfare system or any other government funded/tax aided program. He actually received a check monthly from Social Security, which he had rightfully earned for working as a lawyer for some thirty years. He was also a veteran, as were a number of other homeless we interviewed.

He was homeless for one reason only. That was so he could experience freedom as he felt it was meant to be. That made him happy! If you were to see this gentleman, who was so articulate, educated and well mannered, I think we would all change our opinions on the homeless.

You can see a clip of his interview from the film here:

I hope we can all spread a little happiness as he has to so many.

Best wishes,
Aaron Mighty
One Happy Movie
