Teaneck a suburb of New York City is a large township located in the mid-eastern portion of Bergen County, New Jersey. The town has not one but two claims to fame: George Washington led American troops through the area after suffering defeat at the Battle of Fort Washington, and in 1964 it became the first community in the country with a white majority to voluntarily desegregate its schools. The township remains diverse, with most immigrants hailing from Latin America, Asia and Europe, and native born citizens tracing their origins to the West Indies, Poland, Germany, Italy, Ireland and Russia. Both the black and Jewish communities have a strong presence in the area. Just 14 miles northwest of New York City, Teaneck is also neighbored by several other communities: Bogota, Englewood, Hackensack, Leonia, Bergenfield, Ridgefield Park, Maywood and River Edge. Nearly half of the town's residents have earned a four-year or higher degree, and nearly 55% are married. Another almost 8% have been divorced.
