Indisputably one of the most in demand locations in the New York metropolitan area, Tenafly has all the features people desire.
Let’s start with location – simply perfect. Tenafly is 8 miles from New York City. By car it’s only 15 minutes to the toll booths on the George Washington Bridge and a 15 minute drive to all major highways.
Need to fly somewhere? Newark Liberty Airport is 35 minutes away. The 2 New York City airports, La Guardia and JFK, are respectively 45 minutes and 1 hour away.
Bergen County’s famous shopping malls on Routes 4 & 17 are another easy drive. You can get to all of them in no more than 20 minutes. Every store imaginable in all price ranges is there from Neiman Marcus to a discount outlet center.
Tenafly itself has a robust business district that makes going out of town nearly unnecessary. Great restaurants, gourmet food stores, a supermarket, a bakery, movie theater, CVS, nail & beauty salons, a cooking supply + gift store, dry cleaner, a dress shop, and book store are just some of what Tenafly has to offer you.
Because the down town is so extensive, it’s also a place where people meet each other; it’s not unusual to see someone you know with every trip. For all its large size, Tenafly is a very close community.
A primary reason for this is the school district. People move here because of the schools which boast the highest SAT scores in Bergen County. Tenafly is one of the most powerful school districts in New Jersey with facilities second to none. Parent participation is high and school board elections are hotly contested. Tenafly residents care and strongly support their schools.
For all its reputation for affluence, Tenafly has a surprisingly wide demographic. From estate homes on East Hill acre lots to more moderate properties on the west side of town, this tightly knit community comes together as one. It is this special characteristic that makes the Tenafly lifestyle a wonderful living experience.
Tenafly is one of the crown jewels of Bergen County known for its sophisticated and affluent population and yet it is a sweet small town where you can raise your family with classic all American values. Can it be any surprise that Tenafly homes are always in high demand?
