Hackensack History / Hackensack Car Dealerships
« on: August 21, 2011, 10:49:09 AM »
At one time we had almost all of the GM franchise dealers in Hackensack. Feldner Cadillac in Hackensack (where I started working in 1985).. Guy-Ross Chevrolet (also worked there).. Jack Schlein Buick on Main St....and Joseph's Oldsmobile (formerly Ratner Olds)..the only one we didn't have was Pontiac, and there was Sifford Pontiac-GMC right over the bridge in Bogota, still very close..

When i was a kid I heard that this place was a Satanic church...according to this article it seems to be some sort of Polish/Slavic church. I know now the church was demolished and condos were built, but does anyone remember anything specific about this place?

Hackensack History / Hackensack Record King
« on: April 30, 2010, 03:46:33 PM »
Last summer i visited the "new" Record King on Main St, across the street from where he used to be next to the Oritani. I hadn't been in the old store since the late 70's (i bought english imports and the Ace Frehley solo album in 1978) and was never in the new store until last August. I was glad to see the original owner Craig still in the store too.
If you're into vinyl still like i am, check him out...anyone here been in either the old or new store?

Anyone remember or have pix of the floods under the rt 80 overpass on Hudson that used to occur in the late 70's/early 80's?

Anyone remember this place on River St?...it was close to the intersection of River and East Kansas St.  I junked a few cars there back in the mid-80's

Hackensack History / Reilly Ct.

Does anyone know when they made this little street off of Jackson Ave? It's a small cul-de-sac not too far from the start of Jackson from Hudson (close to Frederick St i think) . I belive it was sometime in the 80's. And what was there before the street?

Hackensack History / Another street question (Marginal Road)
« on: April 26, 2010, 02:58:56 PM »
Another one that always puzzled me was that little semi-circle "street" off of Hudson by the rt 80 overpass called "Marginal Road". It runs from Hudson around to E Wesley St but has no houses on it, just off street parts of Jackson and Washington Aves.
anyone know anything about this?

Hackensack History / Another interesting street question
« on: April 23, 2010, 02:38:22 PM »
Another street that always seemed odd to me was that corner of Essex and South State Sts. where there is a street sign in that parking lot that says Huyler St (which begins when the town changes to So. Hack) Last i can remember the two signs were there together almost parallel.

Hackensack History / Maiden Lane
« on: April 22, 2010, 07:50:26 AM »
There was a "sidestreet" off of Hudson called Maiden Lane, but it really wasn't a street at all...just kind of a shallow lot that looked like it was part of Hudson...anyone know any history on this?
thanks!

Hello again, does anyone remember the little market on Jackson Ave. right off of Hudson Street by Costa Bros? Or the candy store on Hudson by the corner of Kennedy, at one time it was called "Tessie's"

Does anyone remember Gino's? It was right by the railroad tracks across from Eastern Electronics. It became Roy Rogers and then later Mc Donalds.

Hackensack History / Hudson Street question
« on: July 27, 2009, 08:57:22 AM »
Does anyone remember the used car lot next to the bar on the corner of Hudson and Wesley streets...and if I'm not mistaken, the next side street (now called Wysocki place I think) was also named something else...can anyone help?
