What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Hackensack

I like where I am located and how easy it is to get places. There are plenty of shops around. I would be able to walk to places to get groceries and things like that if I didn't have a car.

Nearby police stations, nearby restaurants, nearby parks, nearby public transportation. everything around here is easily accessible.

What I love most is the amount of green space. Trees everywhere, NJ Green Acres areas, public walk/bike paths in the next town over ( I live right by that border) County park for walking and nature study right in town. Public Libraries have great programs,

My favorite store is within walking/driving distance, and I am within 3 miles of 3 malls in my county. I also have easy access to public transportation.

Living in Hackensack, NJ

When you move into an apartment in Hackensack, New Jersey, you might be surprised by all there is to do in this city, particularly when it comes to outdoor recreation. A huge bonus is that the largest city in the country, New York City, is only 15 miles away.

There are 15 public parks in the city with various amenities for all ages, such as baseball diamonds, ice skating rinks, tennis courts, walkways with waterfront views and special events. Watch the 4th of July fireworks over the river in Foschini Park or join in the fun during the Columbus Day celebration in Columbus Park.

If you like river views and water activities, look for apartments near the Hackensack River. Take a guided bird walk within the Hackensack River watershed or enjoy an eco-cruise along the river in a pontoon boat.

If you want something more leisurely, tour the river on a two-hour guided paddle ride through the area's marshes.

During colder months, you don't have to hibernate in your Hackensack apartment. You can ice skate in Baldwin Park or bundle up with a blanket and a hot chocolate while you watch other people skate.
