True to its name, Edgewater borders the west shore of the Hudson River and is just a few blocks wide, stretching three-and-a-half miles between North Bergen and Fort Lee. Panoramic views of the river and Manhattan are enjoyed from many of the borough's residences, a blend of single-family homes and mid- and high-rise apartments. It's an easy commute to Midtown via NY Waterway ferries, which cruise from Edgewater Landing to W. 39th Street. Curiously, Edgewater has a vibrant population of green Quaker parrots, which according to local lore escaped as pets sometime in the 1970s. They've settled permanently in town, building dome-shaped multi-avian-family nests. It’s clear that the parrots, who’ve long become full-time Edgewater residents, know a good thing when they see it.

Living in Bergen County

Home to just shy of one million residents, Bergen County—New Jersey’s most populous—offers nearly as many lifestyles. It’s located across the Hudson River from Manhattan, the Bronx, and lower Westchester County with elements of overlap from all three, from the soaring co-op towers of Guttenberg and Fort Lee to grand several-acre estates in towns like Alpine, Saddle River, and Ridgewood. There’s little you won’t find along Route 17 in Paramus, a prime retail corridor with just about every big-box store and three indoor malls, the Garden State Plaza reigning supreme. NJ Transit’s Bergen, Main, and Pascack Valley Lines reach several area communities with direct service to Hoboken Terminal, and Penn Station via Secaucus. And while many locals commute to New York City by train and the George Washington Bridge, countless Fortune 500 companies have offices right in Bergen County: BMW North America, KPMG, and Unilever, just to name a few.
