Waldwick, a tiny borough located in the mid-northeastern portion of Bergen County, provides a home to just fewer than 10,000 residents in its two square miles. Its name may stem from Old English and has been alternately translated as "beautiful grove" or "village in a grove". It lies just seven miles to the northeast of Paterson, the nearest town of over 50,000, and New York City is twenty-four miles to the southeast. A neighboring borough, Ho-Ho-Kus, shares a name with the brook that flows through the center of town. Other nearby communities includes Saddle River, Allendale, Midland, Ridgewood, Wyckoff, Ramsey and Woodcliff Lake. Most of the community's immigrant residents are from Asia or Europe, and make up about 12% of the population. Italy, Ireland, Germany, Poland, England, and Holland all lend their diverse cultures to the history of the town's native born citizens. Almost 64% of Waldwick's inhabitants are married, with another 5.7% having gone through divorce.
