Cresskill is the quintessential suburban town of quiet streets, family neighborhoods, local parks and a quaint down town where just the right number of shops exist. Little League, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Pop Warner Football etc. are all here and well supported by this family oriented community.
Cresskill is also one of the most exclusive communities in the United States with multi-million dollar estate homes blanketing the East Hill in developments known as The Esplanade, Rio Vista, Tammy Brook Hills and Tamcrest Estates where there has been an explosion of high end luxury home construction. Cresskill homes here can easily bring $5 million or more.
This moderate sized town (the population is 7,904) has strong community pride and it is not unusual to find generations of family living here. Despite the wide demographic, Cresskill is a welcoming community where everyone gets along; one of the most popular places to meet your neighbor is at the vibrant community pool during the summer.
Because Cresskill is a small town, there are 2 elementary schools and one plant for both Cresskill Middle and High Schools. But, don’t let that fool you. Cresskill High School is #18 on New Jersey Monthly Magazine’s Top 100 High Schools in their 2014 review of all NJ high schools. The schools here consistently rank at the top – they have a justified reputation for excellence!
As you would expect, the strength of Cresskill schools has a very positive impact on the value of Cresskill homes. This is a big reason why buying a Cresskill home is a priority for many young families. Demand for Cresskill homes is historically strong.
Close to New York City, this is a largely commuting town with several express bus lines from New Jersey Transit and Coach USA. By car you are only 15-20 minutes to the George Washington Bridge and many people go to Manhattan on the weekend to take in a play, visit a museum or just have dinner. Equally accessible are major highways and shopping in Paramus where you’ll find endless shopping malls.
With the charm and ambience of the best of suburban living, this friendly, laid back town has a sophisticated population that demands the best and Cresskill is it!
