Get to know Tenafly

Home to just shy of 15,000 residents, suburban Tenafly is a borough rich in culture with all the conveniences of Bergen County living. Situated on the Hudson River mere minutes from Manhattan over the George Washington Bridge, it’s a dynamic community offering something for everyone, from one-of-a-kind shops to recreation areas like Davis Johnson Park, Roosevelt Commons, and the Tenafly Nature Center—the latter boasts some 400 acres of wooded hiking and cross-country ski trails. Tenafly’s terrain varies greatly from its central valley to the towering bluffs to the east of town, collectively referred to as “East Hill.” You’ll find a charming Main Street along West Railroad Avenue, home to an array of restaurants, a movie theater, and the landmark Clinton Inn, a sizable hotel and event venue that has existed here in some form since 1868. Whether you’re sticking around or just here on the fly, you won’t want to rush your time in Tenafly.

Tenafly 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.
