New Bridge Landing is in River Edge. This bridge was the site of "The Bridge That Saved A Nation," where George Washington and the Continental Army crossed over the Hackensack River when retreating from British forces who were attacking New York City back in 1776.

The borough of River Edge is in Bergen County, New Jersey. As of the census in 2010 the population is 11,340, which represents a decline from 2000, which had already declined from 1990, although not by much. The borough is situated on the western edge of the Hackensack River and has a total area of under two square miles. Around are the other settlements of Hackensack, New Milford, Oradell, and Paramus, while the western side of Upper Manhattan is only eight miles to the southeast. The weather in the city is typical of what you'd find in the northeast, where the summers are warm and in the mid to high 80s, and the winters turn cold, with snow and freezing temperatures seen most years.

Moving to River Edge

Being only eight miles from Upper Manhattan, and only a little further to Downtown, you're going to find that River Edge is popular among commuters who work in New York City. This means two things. First of all, you'll find that it's a competitive market, with any number of city slickers looking for a nice suburban dwelling outside of the big city. Secondly, homes rent for high prices. There's no getting around it. If you're close enough to a major city like New York with all its opportunity, then you're going to have to pay top dollar for a house or apartment.

The Market is Tight

The vacancy rate in River Edge is generally lower than you'll get in the vast majority of places in the country. This is typical of any suburb near a major city, and you're going to have to fight tooth and nail to get your hands on a new home. There are over 4,000 homes in River Edge, but only about a quarter are occupied by renters. All in all, it's important that you begin your search early if you want to find somewhere by the time your current tenancy draws to a close, because available rental housing will be scarce.

Types of Housing

Anyone looking for housing to rent needs to know just what sort of housing is available, right? Well, detached homes account for about 75% of all the properties in the city, which is great if you're looking for a bigger place to live. Apts for rent in River Edge are, however, less common, although still make up pretty much the remainder of the homes in the area. Basically, you're looking at a direct split -- three quarters detached houses and one quarter apartments. If you are looking for a one bedroom apartment, be aware that these are few and far between, and if you're looking for studio apartments for rent, you'd be best searching elsewhere, because there are none in the area.

Give Yourself the Edge

In such a tight market it's important that you give yourself any edge you can. This means not only searching early, but also being flexible with what you're looking for. Moreover, you need to get saving so that you're ready to pay your deposit and first month's rent as soon as you find somewhere you like, because you can bet that if you're not quick on the draw, someone else will snatch it from under your nose.

Neighborhoods in River Edge

River Edge has a mediocre walk score of 57, so you can get some things done on foot, but not everything. The amenities are generally packed tightly into the center, along Kinderkrmack Road, so if you live near here you can probably get by without a car.

Borough Center: You'd usually expect most amenities to be in the borough or city center, but it isn't the case in River Edge. In fact, this neighborhood is made up of primarily residential housing, with detached homes dotted along wide tree-lined streets. To the west you'll find Bergen County Zoo.

North Hackensack: This is where you'll find Kinderkamack Road, where most amenities are found, including restaurants like Efes Mediterranean, and Ms Sushi. You'll also find great travel options, with River Edge Station in the north and New Bridge Landing Station in the south.

Living in River Edge

River Edge has a few historic landmarks of interest to both visitors and the local residents. Aside from New Bridge Landing which was mentioned earlier, Campbell-Christie House, Steuben House, and Demarest House are all historically significant and architecturally beautiful. There are a couple of parks in the city, most notably Veterans Memorial Park and, of course, Bergen County Zoo.

The borough is, of course, wonderfully situated, only a few miles from the Hudson River to the east, giving easy access to the major urban settings over in New York. Of course, being so close to the Big Apple, River Edge has become popular among commuters who work there but who are looking for a quieter standard of living outside of the city. To make this work, travel needs to be easy enough, and it is. There are two rail stations in the north and south of the borough allowing easy access to Manhattan, while NJ Transit provides a bus service to and from Midtown Manhattan on route 165, as well as local services along routes 756 and 762.
