Bergenfield is an opportunity for many people to achieve the dream of home ownership in Bergen County. With moderately priced Bergenfield homes and a dynamic school district, Bergenfield is a highly sought after location by home buyers.
Well known as the location for Bergen County’s Annual St Patrick’s Day Parade, Bergenfield is actually a very diverse community. The past 20 years has seen explosive growth in the Philippino, Orthodox Jewish and Hispanic communities among others. This increased diversity has spurred growth in the business district and has added a wonderful energy to the town.
Another important positive change has been the school district. A change in Superintendent to Dr. Michael Kuchar has brought spectacular improvements to the Bergenfield School District. Revamping every aspect of the school system, Dr. Kuchar has energized the system, slashed costs and improved the academics to such a degree that Bergenfield schools are a major reason why Bergenfield homes are in such high demand. This award winning school district continues to be recognized every year for excellence.
Bergenfield is a town of small, friendly neighborhoods. You’ll find a wide range of people and ages on every block from new young families to senior citizens who stay on because they love living in town. It’s also not unusual to find that several generations of the same family all living here. Many people raised in Bergenfield buy a Bergenfield home as adults to raise their own children.
Another positive is the extensive business district that runs along Washington Avenue. Filled with many small businesses, terrific local ethnic restaurants and a movie theater, you can get anything you need right in town.
Commuting to work in New York City is by express bus service from New Jersey Transit to the Port Authority Bus Terminal or the George Washington Bridge Bus Terminal. Commuting to NYC takes about 1 hour on the bus and during non rush hour times there’s the local bus as well.
A more affordable real estate market, excellent school district and welcoming community all combine to make Bergenfield homes among the most popular in Bergen County.
