Remembering What Was There: Oritani Field Club
Journeys into Hackensack
There's a huge parking garage and apartments where there were until recently tennis courts. The five-story 254-unit apartment building was built on the site of the Oritani Field Club, a historic landmark that was razed to make way for the development.
At one time, the Oritani was at the center of the social and business structure of a Hackensack in its golden era. There were eight tennis courts, for amateur and pro players alike. There was also a pool, lined with Olympic lanes. And inside, there was rooms to play cards, talk business or socialize. A bar was at hand. It was a place to dine.
