The Northern region of New Jersey (NJ) provides easy access to New York City (NYC). Northern New Jersey was the site of some of the earliest European settlements. During the American Revolutionary War, NJ was a strategic location between NYC and the Continental Congress in Philadelphia. Although lifestyles are quite different today than they were when George Washington “walked untrodded ground”, some things remain unchanged. Great towns like Allendale, Fair Lawn, Franklin Lakes, Glen Rock, Ho-Ho-Kus, Mahwah, Midland Park, Oakland, Oradell, Paramus, Ramsey, Ridgewood, Saddle River, Upper Saddle River, Waldwick and Wyckoff not only have nostalgic historical landmarks, they are the GREAT suburbs of our state because of the proximity to the cultural capital of the world New York, NY.
