I thought Huck Finn was across the street from the Heritage Diner on River Street. Might have eventually become a Roy Rogers? I Google mapped where I thought it was and it looks like the building still exists. Looks like it might have been converted to a bank at one time and now is available. The building is shaped as I recall, you enter in the center of the building and then there was a dining area on each side. Each end of the building was canter levered forward. I believe Shea Chevrolet was on the next block down, on the street behind it.

Rutherford Daily Voice: Luxury Apartments, American Diner With Twist Coming To Downtown Hackensack.
Well...........the reflection of it, anyway.

As the clouds move out, the Empire State Building - which is a couple of buildings to the left of the Bogota smokestack - still has its head in those clouds. The sun is reflecting off NYC buildings and the reflected light is illuminating the smoke from the PSE&G facility in Ridgefield, while Hackensack's Current on River project on River St  (bottom) appears to support both states.

If you go to the bottom of this page - - you can find a post by "Bergen County Johnny" (any relation?) that mentions the Huck Finn in Hackensack.

there was the most phenomenal turnout ever for the Cleanup Day. It looked like 250 - 300 people, so many that the organizers are having a hard time keeping up with everything. They ran out of plates, they ran out of shirts and give aways, but they did have enough food. The Riverkeeper group alone turned out 79 volunteers to clean the riverfront from Route 4 to the northern tip of Hackensack. I saw Councilman Sims down there, greeting some of the volunteers.
This is the last month-and-a-half's worth of progress. All dates are under each picture.

The last 4 images show why Anderson St was closed earlier this week. In two of those images, you can see a big hole in the middle of the street - exactly where one existed 10 years ago when the road collapsed after a 120+ year-old BRICK water pipe broke. I asked some of the 435 Main project workers why the hole was open again and "storm drain" was the answer I got.

CLEANUP DAY: Saturday 10/26/2019 is Clean Communities Day, aka Slam Dunk the Junk. The event is held twice a year, and draws over 200 people. It's mostly non-profits and churches that are organizing volunteers to clean various areas.  We clean most of the city's parks, nature areas, the riverfront, the railroads, etc.

9 AM: Registration & Free Breakfast: Volunteers meet at the HACPAC Performing Arts Center on State & Atlantic Street. They give out bags and gloves.  Lots of food.

10AM; Volunteers disperse to their designated cleanup locations. My group is sponsored by The Summit Church, and we are cleaning Borg's Woods.

12 noon: Return to HACPAC, free lunch, T-shirts, and other gifts. Tell them how many bags were left to remove. Free lunch is provided, again lots of food.

It's all paid for by a State grant available to any city or town that wants to participate. Come hungry, there's always lots of food. Hackensack has one of the largest and best programs running. It's coordinated by Greg Liosi, Director of the Arts Dept in Hackensack.
