City Guide
Rutherford
Life on the Jersey Side in Rutherford

Rutherford, NJ was formed as part of a New Jersey Legislative act in 1881. The full borough covers only 2.806-square miles, and sits parallel to the Passaic River on one side and Erie Railroad on the other. Rutherford also resides on a ridge right above the New Jersey Meadowlands, wetlands that cover the northeast corner of the state.

Start looking for places early, allowing yourself as much as six months to locate your new home. The housing supply is tight in this area, so property owners will be security-conscious. Be prepared to offer a photo ID and proof of income as part of the application process. It is likely potential landlords will do full background checks prior to renting, as well.

The Neighborhoods of Rutherford

The more than 18,000 residents of the borough of Rutherford call four distinct neighborhoods home.

Union Ave/Montross Ave: In the upper northwest corner of the borough is the neighborhood of Union Ave/Montross Ave, bordered on one side by the Passaic River. This region offers a mix of rental options from studios to two-bedroom apartments for rent and single-unit homes.

Borough Center: Bordering the Union Ave neighborhood, and ironically not in the center, is Borough Center, a small development shaped a little like a Christmas tree. It lies parallel on one side with the town of East Rutherford. Like most of the borough, this neighborhood offers a variety of rental possibilities, but consists more of apartment complexes than single homes. You will find anything from a studio to premier apartments for rent here.

Riverside Ave/River Oaks Drive: Below the Borough Center is the Riverside Ave/Rivers Oaks Drive division, home to the Passaic Rivers Seaplane Base and skirting the edge of the Rutherford Campus of Felician College. This is a historic region of the borough with a combination of homes for rent in Rutherford and apartment complexes.

Orient Way/Rutherford Ave: At the lower edge of the borough, the Orient Way/Rutherford Ave neighborhood crosses over the Western Spur of the New Jersey Turnpike into the Hackensack River. It offers renters both apartments and homes.

Living the Life in Rutherford

Being just eight miles from the Big Apple offers some real benefits to the residents of Rutherford, but that is not all there is to see there. Rutherford is also home to the Iviswold Castle, William Carlos Williams House, the Rivoli Theatre and the Meadowlands Museum.

The borough offers transport into New York City by rail and bus service going to the Port Authority. You are within close proximity to the Lincoln Tunnel and New Jersey Turnpike, as well.

With New York City in its sights, Rutherford, NJ is a key spot for anyone looking for access to the Big Apple, but prefers a smaller town feel at home.
