Aww, thanks! Really. Thank you for your heartfelt praises and compliments. Your words inspire us to continue our mission and your support of the MSBA fuels our passion for making a difference in Hackensack.


From Benito Rivero, owner, Casual Habana Cafe. “John, I wanted you to know how I’m feeling about Main Street and the MSBA efforts. Main Street is cleaner and well looked after. The cleaner streets and the beautiful flowers and trees have enhanced our area’s appeal. Your events, like Hackensacktoberfest, were a tremendous success, even boosting our business. And the video you did for Casual Habana now has over 100,000 views (how did you do that?), attracting many new followers and customers. I just wanted to let you know your efforts have made a remarkable impact on our community and business, so thank you.”


From the Team at the Johnson Public Library: “The Main Street Business Alliance is such a wonderful partner to have in the community!  We’ve been thrilled to work with the Alliance on special events like the Hackensacktoberfest and initiatives like the new Downtown Hackensack Trend Report. Many thanks to John Peters for regularly reaching out and including us in the downtown happenings!”

We look forward to seeing Hackensack continue to grow and flourish!”
