Share Info About Teaneck
Teaneck is a mainly residential town in Bergen County, New Jersey. Located just across the Hackensack River from the town of Hackensack, this charming community has quite a bit to offer. Most of Teaneck's roads are lined with quaint homes in a wooded landscape, but one can find a few garden apartment complexes closer to the town's main thoroughfares. Teaneck has four main places for local commercial strips, with some blocks along Cedar Lane acting as the town's main downtown. This community is a beautiful, residential neighborhood perfect for raising a family when your job requires a timely commute in Manhattan. Residents of Teaneck are lucky to be located so close to New York City. Virtually a jump across the Hudson, this town offers several options for transportation into Manhattan. One option is an express bus serviced by the NJ Transit, which can take passengers from Teaneck to Midtown's Port Authority Bus Terminal in as little as 35 minutes. But those who prefer to drive their cars directly into the city, residents of Teaneck apartments will enjoy close access to the George Washington Bridge, making for a quick drive into Upper Manhattan. On Teaneck's banks of the Hackensack river sits Fairleigh Dickinson University, which is New Jersey's largest private college. But the town's great education institutions don't end there, as Teaneck's school district has one of the state's highest spending rate per pupil. This community is home to several historic places, with many colonial era homes standing as reminders of Teaneck's history during the American Revolution. Of the town's 24 municipal parks, the largest is Overpeck County Park, standing at nearly 8,000 acres at a tributary of the Hudson River.
