Palisades Park

Named for its location upon a line of steep cliffs bordering New Jersey and New York called the Hudson River Palisades, the modest borough of Palisades Park rests in the southeastern part of Bergen County, New Jersey. It has a very high population density with 19,936 residents in an area of only 1.21 square miles. Located just a 21 minute drive from Teterboro Airport and even closer to I-95, around 30% of the residents commute to work each day. Nearby boroughs include the communities of Ridgefield, Fort Lee, Leonia, Edgewater, Cliffside Park, Ridgefield Park, Fairview and Little Ferry. Union City is the nearest town of over 50,000 and is situated just under 6 miles south-southwest of Palisades Park. New York City is located a little over 10 miles to the southeast. The minority of native born citizens can trace their ancestry to Italy, Germany, Ireland, America, and Arabic nations, while over a third of the 66% of naturalized or immigrated individuals come from Asia. A little over half of Palisades Park residents are married, and 6.1% have gone through a divorce.
