Greetings All and welcome to one of the most interesting and fun places to live in the New York City metropolitan area. Bergen County NJ is at the north east corner of NJ next to the George Washington Bridge which means we’re on top of Manhattan. Our homes are prized for our proximity to NYC our very strong school districts and our suburban lifestyle. Even though Bergen County is one of the most desnsely populated areas in the US, we’re still filled with parks, nature preserves and all sorts of wooded spaces. In fact, most of Bergen County is quite residential.
Bergen County is also very diverse – we have 70 different locations here and each has it’s own unique personality. We go from small hamlets to a typical suburban town to a small city. In fact, we have 5 cities here although they very often resemble big small towns – Englewood, Fort Lee, Garfield, Hackensack and Teaneck.
Diversity extends through racial ethnicities and religions. We are indeed a melting pot of wide ranges. This is one of our strengths and advantages. No matter who your or where you come from, everyone is welcome. Our diversity brings a dynamic element to life here and you will love all the varied cuisines our restaurants offer.
Not only are we the most populous county in New Jersey, we’re also one of the most affluent. We have 925,000+ people here living in 246.671 square miles. There are 3 major highway systems and several more local highways. Known as the shopping capitol of NJ with more malls than anywhere else, there is nothing you can’t find.
Introducing people to Bergen County is always fun – hopefully this blog will help you appreciate all we have to offer.
