Local Reviews

Close to bus stop for public transportation. Close to convince store and some restaurants plus pharmacy near by if I need to get there quickly

In our gated area we had a guard and it is clean and beautifull. Everyone is older and it is a very friendly area

Our 4th Avenue display a lot of fine Mexican restaurants. We are part of old Town and the rent is affordable. I like my neighbors and we look out for each other.

I like going to the mall and stores or going out to eat with family and friends. I also like going to the movies to I think it's fun. Or going to play sports

I am very comfortable living here and am pretty peaceful. I enjoy watching neighbors work on their yards.

There is one restaurant nearby, however that's about the only thing around in my neighborhood in terms of a public place.

About

River Edge, NJ

Overview of River Edge

The historic borough of River Edge has a charming small-town feel, even though it is located in the most densely populated county in New Jersey. It is situated just west of New York City, even though people in River Edge apartments for rent live in a quiet community. According to statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau, approximately 11,400 people enjoy the tight-knit atmosphere of River Edge. Home to several local parks, vast open spaces give residents a spot to play sports, enjoy the scenery and relax.

Living in River Edge, NJ

After World War II, suburban subdivision and development accelerated rapidly, and it continued to boom over time. Although many of the homes built during this area have been replaced by newer homes, the community embraces the historical identity that exists today.

Through continual development, River Edge apartments have become increasingly more attractive to many people. Since the town is just a short drive or transit ride to New York City, many people find employment there, but there are many opportunities within the community as well. Some of Bergen County's top employers include Hackensack University Medical Center, Valley Health System, the county government, Bio-Reference Laboratories and Unilever Best Foods.

River Edge Attractions and Special Events

Located partially in River Edge, Washington Spring Garden is a lush forested area that spans a half-acre within Van Saun County Park. This park is a monument to General George Washington and the Continental Army's trek through the area during the Revolutionary War. Known previously as Slukup, it was later changed to Spring Valley in 1832 because of it sounded unpleasant.

Veteran's Memorial Park is situated just off Continental Avenue and boasts a walking path, tennis courts, a picnic area, pavilion and much more. Brookside Park and Kenneth B. George Park also offer residents a peaceful getaway from hectic life.
