Share Info About Englewood Cliffs
Englewood Cliffs is an upper-class borough in Bergen County at the northeast section of New Jersey. The town measures slightly over two square miles along the waterfront of the Hudson River. It looks across the Hudson toward New York and is adjacent to the city of Englewood, which is twice its size and operates as a separate local government. Those living in Englewood Cliffs fit comfortably into the affluent status as the average home price tends to float above $1 million dollar price range. Englewood Cliffs is very much a suburban environment with its abundance of green space including the Palisades Interstate Park which is home to the Palisades cliffs. Both territories are designated U.S. National Landmarks status and are also registered on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The park spans the length of Englewood Cliffs riverfront and has protected status by the National Park service. In spite of this, there have been several large companies who have petitioned to build their offices within the borders of the park area. Thus far, none have been very successful. However, other companies like Unilever and CNBC have set up their headquarters just outside the park's borders, across the Palisades Interstate Parkway, and have had great success there, along with bringing jobs and revenue to the town. Given the upscale community, the housing in Englewood Cliffs is dominated by large, single-family homes. Residents are primarily property owners, as opposed to renters. As such, there are no high-rise, or mid-rise rental buildings in this area. Most of the rentals in the area are for large 4-5 bedroom homes. The public schools here serve only kindergarten through 8th grade. However, Englewood Cliffs does have a sending/receiving relationship the city of Englewood, which allows school-age children of one district to attend public schools in the other. In the case of Englewood Cliffs, once students graduate from junior high they can then attend designated high schools in Englewood. Transportation for most residents is very much part what makes Englewood Cliffs such an attractive place to live. It is only a 3-minute drive to the George Washington Bridge at its southern edge, and the entirety of Englewood Cliffs offers easy access to Route 9W and the Palisades Interstate Parkway, both of which lead to I-95. For commuters travelling in and out of Manhattan, New Jersey Transit offers a couple of bus routes that lead to either the Port Authority Bus Terminal in midtown Manhattan, or the George Washington Bridge Bus Terminal which is located in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan. Both terminals offer subway service to further parts of Manhattan.
