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.
