Welcome to the City of Hackensack

Hackensack is a unique and diverse city on the verge of a Renaissance. We are home to the Bergen County Judiciary, County Government, world-renowned medical center and nationally-recognized educational institutions. The city is conveniently situated along Routes 4, 17 and 80 and is also served by two NJ Transit train stations providing frequent service to NYC via Hoboken and Secaucus.  Our downtown bus transfer station provides access to virtually anywhere. Our history dates back to the 1600's and General Washington was briefly headquartered here during his famous 1776 Retreat. 45,000 people are proud to call Hackensack home.

Winter Storm Information

Snow/Parking Notice:
In an effort to allow the DPW to better plow the streets during snow storms, the Hackensack Police Department will be strictly enforcing all "No Parking When Road Is Snow Covered" regulations in the coming winter. Residents must remove vehicles from these roadways anytime snow accumulation reaches 3 inches or more. The regulations can be found here. Summonses will be issued to all vehicles in violation. Those vehicles that create an extreme hazard for snow plows, or any that are left in the same spot for days following a storm, may be subject to impound. Thank you for your cooperation.
