Hackensack History / Re: Hackensack Record King

Took a ride into town yesterday to visit my old favorite record store again. Craig was his usual gentleman to me and my wife, our daughter is really into used vinyl so I got her a gift certificate for the store (i wanted to buy her a shirt too but he had no more). Anyway, Main St was all torn up for many blocks there...amidst all the dust we got a slice at the pizzeria across the street (which was a little disappointing actually, not as good as I remembered it)
His gift certificate was so cool, he put a little embossed stamp on it to prove it's authentic too! We'll probably head over there on Black Friday, this time I'll skip the pizza though... :-\

I got mine inspected back in November the day after wait at all that day, everyone was at the malls thankfully. If I had to get inspection now I'd pay to get it done somewhere, DMV in any capacity is a disaster these days  :-[

Just looking around on NJMLS I saw the "chic" new 210 Main apartment they are beautiful but really pricey! The description was "the new wave of living in Hackensack". Has anyone seen this new spot in person?

Last time I was there was probably in November or was empty. And i'm talking in the "dinner time" hours of 6-7pm. A shame

Your first picture reminds me of when DiSalvo's was on the left hand side almost across from the CVS

Great collection Bob! When I was a kid there was a place a few doors before the library we used to get our patches at. I think it was some sort of a sewing shop?

Went to B-W on Saturday and decided to look for it in person, in it's current state it looks like it won't be long before it's replaced
