Borg Woods (named for John Borg, the founder of the Bergen Record) is located just behind Summit Ave in Hackensack. You can’t find better examples of the over-priced, over-sized McMansions that have come to dominate this area then those on Summit Ave. Nestled in the border of Hackensack, Maywood and Paramus, these woods would be manicured lawns by now if they hadn’t been preserved by the County.
The story in Weird NJ stated that in these woods was an old house long ago abandoned. As kids during the 70’s & 80’s, he and his friends heard rumors of ghostly figure at the windows. When they approached the house, someone rattled the doors from inside, etc, etc. There really is an boarded up house in these woods, buried deep in the southern most section of it. The author stated the doors were pad locked, which I didn’t see, and the house is practically on someone’s property, outside the boundary of the woods. I’m not entirely sure if this is the same house or not…. If you come down to look around, be sure to look for this huge fallen tree that is just too cool.
