Hackensack History / Old lunchonette
« on: October 28, 2019, 06:52:56 AM »

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

Hackensack Discussion / Phiefer's/Attili's
« on: January 07, 2017, 03:58:49 PM »
Hey gang, I had to run an errand in Bogota this morning and decided to pass thru Main St looking for the old Phiefer's and discovered Attili's Grille....great breakfast at a reasonable price. I hadn't been inside the place since I was a kid... They kept the old Phiefer's signs on the inside and even had one of the old menu's which I snapped a pic of to post here. Has anyone tried their food yet?

Hackensack Discussion / The "old style" street signs

Happened to be going down So Prospect earlier today, here is an example of the street signs I had mentioned in another thread. Curious as to why this particular one was never updated...

Hackensack History / New song about Hackensack...
« on: October 27, 2016, 08:50:24 AM »
Hey gang, here is my story...years ago I posted a question if anyone remembered the King Spirit Temple at Park and Central. In one of my musical projects, the singer of this band (an old friend of mine) knew two guys from Little Ferry who actually had an encounter with the "church goers" of that place in the 80's. As the story goes, they were walking by the church and the door was open. One of the guys saw a gong on the "altar" and they decided to go inside and attempt to steal it. They were caught by the "parishoners" and were arrested for Breaking and entering. They appeared in court along with the witnesses from the church who, according to one of the boys chanted at them in something they couldn't understand, successfully scaring the s&*t out of them. Me and my friend, the singer had always talked about writing a song about that...and now here it is...hope you all enjoy

Hey gang, does anyone remember this little shop? It was a few doors south of Immaculate Conception school. I googled the address and there's a Certa Pro Painters business in there as of 2013, but the building is still there

Hackensack History / Questions about Hackensack eateries..
« on: August 11, 2015, 08:31:29 AM »
Hey gang, I was curious if anyone remembered the name of the place on the corner of Lodi St and So. State St many years ago, I think it was Daddy-O's or something like that? It changed names many times..curious if anyone remembers the name changes. Also the place on the corner of Lodi and Green St. Another "many turnover" spot. I can't help thinking that particular spot would get flooded a lot. Also there was an italian restaurant north of that corner who's name I can't remember..

Hey gang...there was a small pizza place on Vreeland Ave just up the street from Immaculate Conception church, close to the intersection of Taylor Ave. It was like a converted house (which they later made back into a house after it closed)...anyone remember this place? I remember playing pinball in there, mid to late 70's
