I am a single female, early 30s. Can anyone recommend any apartment complexes or areas near Hackensack, where I will be working, that would provide for a comfortable commute? Safety is a concern. My budget is around $1800 to $2000/month. I do have a cat. Any names of specific apartment buildings would be especially helpful.

Also, does anyone know if a morning commute from East Rutherford to Hackensack is doable?

Thanks in advance.

You can live in Hackensack with that amount its very doable. Hackensack is a nice city and virtual no crime. I only know the rich apartments in Hackensack , but the cheaper ones surround it.

Look into the high rises along Prospect Ave- All you need is a visual to make a decision. Unfortunately, I wouldn't look into the 300 Prospect Ave tower, with the parking garage collapse and all the other mishaps I've heard about that place, I wouldn't give it a chance.

You could also look into the apartments in Maywood. There's the Maybrook Plaza right off Essex St, very close to Hackensack- It's a nice area. There's also a nice block apartment complex in between West Pleasant, West Passaic St, and Maywood Ave (not sure what they're called), which is probably the most ideal if you're familiar with that area. West Pleasent Ave is the downtown area of Maywood, considering how small the town actually is- It's awesome. It's also very close to the Hackesack border.

I grew up in Hackensack, so that's why I know so much- Good luck!

IT has a small crime issue, just stay away from the Carver Park/First St and Railroad Ave area and you generally have a lot of options. Main St is decent, but with her budget, she can do better.
