Overview of Westwood

Westwood is a borough located in northeast New Jersey, near the New York State line. Westwood apartments for rent are excellent ways to join the estimated population of nearly 11,000 living across the 2.27 square miles of land encompassed here.

Westwood is part of Bergen County, and sits only 17 miles north of New York City and 8 miles northwest of Yonkers, N.Y. It is officially part of the Bergen-Passaic metro area and near La Guardia Airport as well as a number of major roadways.

This borough is positioned within the Pascack Valley and 10 miles northwest of the George Washington Bridge, only seven miles south of the New Jersey - New York state border.

Living in Westwood, NJ

People living in Westwood rentals can enjoy being part of a town with a rich history. The land on which Westwood sits today was previously home to the Lenni-Lenape Indians of the Eastern Algonquin Nation. The first permanent settlers arrived in the area in the mid-1700s, and the area was primarily used as farmland prior to the outbreak of the Civil War. In 1780, Isaac Bogert purchased 500 acres of land and established his residence in the area with his family.

The borough went through a series of name changes on its way to its Westwood name today, originally called Pleasantville in the early 19th century before becoming a part of Harrington Township in 1826. Harrington was renamed Washington Township in 1840 and Pleasantville's name was finally changed to Westwood in 1875. Westwood was officially incorporated as a borough in 1894 and remains today.

Nearly 6,000 local residents make up the labor force in Westwood as of the 2010 Census.
