|Ramsey has one-third the population of Hackensack, but commuters in the affluent community are getting treated much better by NJ Transit, which beautifully restored the train station in 2005, above and below.|

The closest thing to a train station in Hackensack is a new NJ Transit building on Anderson Street.
But it doesn't have any doors, and it may more accurate to call it a train shelter.
Compare the Hackensack building to Ramsey's beautifully restored station, originally built in 1864, during the Civil War.
Although the Hackensack building opened at the end of March, The Record has ignored it.
Another NJ Transit stop in Hackensack, at Essex Street, has more parking than Anderson Street, but nothing like the new structure to shelter commuters.
