Glen Rock

Glen Rock is a small borough located on the west side of Bergen County, New Jersey. It received its name because it was built around a 520-ton boulder that sits along the northern end of the main street in town, Rock Road. It is a growing community with Midland Park located nearby to the north and Fair Lawn and Hawthorne just to the south. Paramus is situated to the southeast while Prospect Park is towards the southwest. The largest city is less than three miles away with Paterson located southwest and Newark a little further at about 16 miles. New York City is only 21 miles from Glen Rock. The area is less than three square miles with a population of 11,601. This is a diverse community with about 13% coming from another country, with most hailing from Asia, Europe or Latin America. Of those who are native Americans, they also have a varied ancestry, including Germans, Irish, Italians, Polish and Russians. Almost 70% of the adult population is married with only 4.5% divorced.

One of the most appealing aspects of Glen Rock is its walkability. It is convenient to get to downtown from many of the neighborhoods on foot. Other features that make this borough popular include the diversity of housing and a school system that is ranked among the best in the state. Additionally, residents appreciate the two train stations which travel into New York. Take a stroll downtown and you will see local shops and a variety of restaurants along with a local grocery store. All of this can be found along Rock Road. Visit the neighborhoods to find a mix of housing from 100-year-old homes to recently built houses. There are ranch-style properties, colonials, cottages and many other designs to choose from. Residents have chosen to live here even if they work in other areas because of the homelike feel to the borough. Even though it is located within a short distance of Manhattan, Glen Rock has the small-town attitude that entices new residents. The Newcomers Club provides an opportunity for those who are new to the area to get to know long-time residents and enjoy social activities for the entire family.
