Heights Gets Closer to Normalcy But Many Still Wait For Power

Areas at the north end of town like Pasadena Avenue, Collins, Baldwin and MacArthur are on day 7 without power.

Hasbrouck Heights is getting closer and closer to some normalcy with all schools reopened and Borough Hall functioning on regular power once again however there are residences on the north end of town still in the dark.

Areas north of Route 46 including Baldwin, Pasadena, Collins, MacAruther are on day 7 of no power. Part of Henry Street is still without power and a part of Franklin as well.

According to a PSE&G repair work plan released by Governor Christie over the weekend listed Hasbrouck Heights as a priority area for power restoration by end of day Monday.

Borough Hall had power restored Sunday night and the area of the Boulevard between Washington and Madison have power as well. Shops like H&L Printing had its Open sign lit it up in red for the first time in a week.

Shadow Mart, Minut Mart and Henry's Deli to name a few are working to reopen now that power is back.

Monday morning a line was forming along the Boulevard just south of the BP gas station on the corner of Williams and Boulevard with cars waiting to fill up.

Cars were lined up along Hackensack Street in Wood-Ridge to gas up at the Express gas station in Wood-Ridge on the corner of Hackensack Street and Center.

Also the Enrite station on Valley Boulevard in Wood-Ridge was taking customers.

Stay tuned for more updates.

In light of recent crisis I just feel that residents are being neglected and I am dissapointed. I understand that it is not under administration's control to expedite the power restoration for the people who STILL have no power. We have had no proactive communications or any assurance from municipality unlike other towns since the storm hit. No updates on website to say least. Needless to say we still do not have power on our street and PSEG hotline claims it may take upto Friday or longer and it is unacceptable. All we want to know is why there are other houses on same street that has power and why power came back for few hours and not restored ever since. And this certainly does not help with temperature dipping into 30's.

Agreed. What about the people who have had to relocate briefly outside of Heights and have to make sure that our kids attend school. It's totally unacceptable that people look out their window and see that houses nearby have lights and they don't

Henry street has no power either. Pse&g keeps thinking we are restored when we aren't. That in itself is an issue. Everyone around us has power including the other side of Henry. This is unacceptable.

100 Block of Lincoln Avenue still has no power....
