Share Info About Edgewater
Check out Edgewater apartments and you might be convinced to move to the Northern New Jersey town that has completely transformed itself in the past couple of decades. Edgewater was somewhat of a tired community, littered with abandoned factories and nearing bankruptcy. But today, this town has become a vibrant, vital neighborhood filled with new residential construction, lots of new retail and commercial activity, and new commitment to taking care of its homes and buildings. Edgewater is located in New Jersey's Bergen County, and is bordered to the north by the town of Fort Lee (and the western terminus of the George Washington Bridge); to the east by the Hudson River (and, across the water, by the Manhattan neighborhoods of Manhattanville and the Upper West Side); to the south by Cliffside Park and to the west by Palisades Avenue and the dramatic and quite lovely Palisades Cliffs. The geography of Edgewater is somewhat quirky, and defined by the cliffs: the borough snakes up the riverfront, three and a half miles long, and about three blocks wide. Edgewater apartments are available within a housing stock that's as varied as you'd expect from an area that's seen such a recent boom in development and renovation. You'll find Edgewater apartments in mixed-use luxury complexes and the soaring contemporary towers on the water; in the beautiful old factories, gut-renovated for residential living; and in the older Victorians and row houses on the slopes closer to the cliffs. With Edgewater's building boom and subsequent influx of young professionals and families came the retail, restaurants, and services that always follow such rapid demographic changes. Today, the borough boasts some of the most vibrant shopping districts in all of Bergen County, including Town Centre, the Binghamton Shopping Plaza, Mitsuwa Marketplace, Edgewater Commons and City Place. Residents of Edgewater apartments often commute to Manhattan for work, usually by public buses of New Jersey Transit (either right over the George Washington Bridge and the subway stations of upper Manhattan, or straight to the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Times Square), but also by the NY Waterway Ferry service to the West Midtown Ferry Terminal (and transfer to a free bus service), and by car, over the GWB and down the West Side Highway. Edgewater rental apartment residents also enjoy easy access to the ambitious Hudson River Waterfront Walkway, a promenade on the Hudson River which, when completed, will extend some 18 miles from the base of the George Washington all the way south to Bayonne.
