Through outreach to Hacksenack’s diverse population, research into effective Transit Hub strategies, and consideration of ways to better connect with county government offices, Main Street Redevelopment, and an expanding Hackensack University Medical Center, this report presents a strategic vision to renew and embrace the Essex Street Station within the City of Hackensack.
