City Guide
Ridgefield Park
Moving to Ridgefield Park

There is a good mixture of historic (pre-WWII) townhouses for rent and trendy, modern apartments here in Ridgefield Park. There is also a relatively even split between owners and renters, so your chance of finding out that your ideal property is available for rent is pretty good.

Before you start your apartment search in Ridgefield Park, there are a few things that you need to do. First, you should finish reading this article to get to know the neighborhoods of Ridgefield Park a bit better. Once you have a better idea of where you would like to live, then you can start using an apartments locator, but be warned: you can't just walk into a property that you like the look of and say "I'll take it!" You need to prove to the landlord that you can be a good and responsible tenant.

So, how do you show how great you can be as a tenant? Well, first of all, some references from previous landlords backing up your claim to be the ideal renter wouldn't go amiss in proving your point. But, most importantly, you need to speak the language that your landlord-to-be knows best: Money. You need to prove that you can pay the rent each month, and that you will. Be prepared to show proof of income and have your credit file checked out.

If you are bringing a pet or two (or an entire menagerie!) with you, then be prepared to put down extra deposits. You might also find that your rent is hiked up a little thanks to Fido's presence in your life. Yes, extra costs are a hassle, but those adorable puppy eyes are worth it, aren't they?

Before you sign anything, make sure you know exactly how much you will be paying each month. Are you looking for all bills paid apartments? If not, try to get an idea from the landlord of how much you can expect to pay out each month for heating, air conditioning, electricity and water. Those New Jersey winters can be very cold, while summers can swelter, so your utility costs could be quite high if they're not already included in the rent!

Neighborhoods in Ridgefield Park

Ridgefield Park is divided into three main neighborhoods, each with their own distinct flavor and advantages. Even though we know the search for apartments can be grueling sometimes, it's best to do as much research on the area as you can before you land--after all, no one wants renter's remorse just because they were too lazy to look at that one extra rental property!

Village Center: The historic center of Ridgefield Park contains a lot of homes built before 1939, so it's one of the best places in the country to come if you long to live in a property with some history and character. This part of town is surrounded to the east and south by Overpeck Creek, which has been adopted as a favorite practice space for local rowing teams. Take a stroll through the recently created Overpeck County Park and watch them sweating their way up and down the river.

West View: The northwestern part of Ridgefield Park has a lot of older single-family homes and apartment buildings. Located just across the river from Hackensack, this is a peaceful residential neighborhood with some great schools and easy access to the I-80.

Main St / Bergen Tpke: This is the neighborhood where you have the best chance of finding your perfect pad in the apartment complex of your dreams! Properties here tend to be clustered in apartment complexes, with fewer single-family homes.

Living in Ridgefield Park

Ridgefield Park has plenty of things going on to keep you entertained. From a canoe club to a kids' recreational program that will keep your little ones running around all summer long, there is no excuse for not getting active and enjoying the local environment.

Of course, the annual Fourth of July parade is a major event on every residents' social calendar. Local businesses, schools, emergency departments, and boy and girl scout troops all play a role in this Fourth of July extravaganza! Come along and display your patriotism, or take part in the home and business decoration contest for a chance to win a locally prestigious award.

You might think that the fifth of July sees residents come back down to earth with a bump, but you'd be wrong. There are plenty of great things about living in Ridgefield Park all year round. From the excellent local transport links that allow an unusually large proportion of residents to take the bus to work, rather than burning up fossil fuels in their car, to the award-winning local elementary schools which have been honored in the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program, it is easy to see why families and individuals alike enjoy setting down roots here. Come and find your perfect home so that you too can become part of the Ridgefield Park community!
