Upper Saddle River Highlights
One of the best places to live in Bergen County is the Upper Saddle River with its big houses, good schools and the perfect rural atmosphere. There is no better place you could chose to live! Unlike it's neighbors Teterboro, Tenafly and Woodclliff Lake, Upper Saddle River is a lively and well populated town.
The town is the most famous for its houses and their exquisite beauty. The houses in Upper Saddle River are a true piece of architecture and have big lawns, pools, well-lit and open kitchens, and bright hallways.
Upper saddle river is best known for its lush two-acre estates, big houses with landscapes groomed to perfection tend to attract a lot of buyers from all over the country who chose to buy these houses for their summer recreation. The close proximity of Upper Saddle river to New York city is one of the key selling points.
Despite this development and urban growth of the town the residents have remained true to their roots. Upper Saddle river celebrated its 100th birthday very recently, while many other things have changed as the town but as the NY Times rightly referred to it as “Quite and Neat as a Pin” the town is still as much a treasure to the residents as it was to their ancestors. The beauty of this town has been preserved and the Apple Orchards and Strawberry Fields keep adding to the unmatchable rural land with the right balance of urbanization.
The beautiful town has much more to offer to residents and tourists. If you are on a visit to Upper Saddle River don’t forget to visit.
The Saddle River Reformed Church, better known as the Old Stone Church. This building showcases the colonial heritage of the town and is the last church in New Jersey to have a minister sermonizing in Dutch. (The practice ended in 1837.)
Bear Mountain State Park, this is the perfect day trip with or without kids. If you love scenic beauty and fresh air this a must for you. With hiking, paddleboat rentals, a large playground, ample room for picnicking and even a zoo, the park has plenty of options to fill an entire day.
Edison National Historic Site, a little road trip plus some learning for the kids. Edison National Park is 30 mints away. The site from the outset looks very fascinating and it’s gets even more interesting as you go inside. You can choose to visit the Laboratory complex or the Glenmont Cell phone tour. Depending on whatever you are more interested in.
Museums, there are a variety if museums that you can go to. These include the American Labor Museum, the Old Stone House Museum, the Bergenfield Museum, the Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum, the Elizabeth Cady Stanton House and the Van Riper-Hopper House.
Darlington County Park, is my favorite place for a summer weekend, with beaches, two lakes, volleyball, tennis and handball courts, and fishing, picnicking and swimming opportunities this is perfect for both residents who need to take a break from their city life and tourists who just want to relax!
he town with all of its facilities and high-end houses looks like a rich town but the community in the town is extremely strong and even people who aren’t rich are living happily due to their strong community activities. Leah Halpern’s USR Cares is a network that organizes donations of goods and services to community members in crisis. Making the town a big family! Some other organizations each working for a cause that in the end benefits the residents operate and the residents take great pride in them.
