Saddle Brook

Saddle Brook is a modest township located in the mid southeast of Bergen County, New Jersey, taking its name from the nearby Saddle River. Its nearly three square miles are home to 13,659 residents, according to U.S. Census data from 2010. Rochelle Park, Elmwood Park, Maywood, Garfield, Lodi, Fairlawn, Hackensack and Hasbrouck Heights are all neighboring communities of the township. The nearest mid-sized city with a population of over 50,000, Paterson, lies just less than four miles west, while New York City's sleepless streets are just seventeen miles to the southeast. The community is richly diverse, with the nearly 17% of non-native residents coming primarily from Eurasia and Latin America, and native citizens tracing their ancestry back to the countries of Italy, Ireland, Germany, Poland, Holland and the Ukraine. Primarily comprised of working class skilled laborers, only about a quarter of Saddle Brook residents have completed a four-year or higher educational degree. Nearly 63% of the population is married, and almost 7% have been through divorce proceedings.
