For those of you that don’t know, Hackensack is somewhat past it’s glory. Apperently back in the day before the the shopping mall Hack was the place to go and folks who grew up around here in the 50’s recall shopping trips to Hackensack from such prosiac places as Ridgewood or Glen Rock as one of the highlights of their youth.

Still, I love being in Hackensack…convenient to the city and the woods, good transit, the beautiful river nearby (and spread out from the studio windows).

So it was good to see Hackensack’s Main Street as a bustling place to be once more… and it was a very friendly and very mixed crowd.
