Bergen County: A Desirable Place to Live

Bergen County is known for its tightly knit communities, spacious homes, and suburban charm, which is why it has become one of the best places to live near New York City. In fact, several of its towns and boroughs have been named among the best places to live in New Jersey! Because of Bergen County's plentiful amenities and real estate options, many residents opt to live in Bergen County and commute to Manhattan via commuter rail lines, which include the MTA's Port Jervis Line and New Jersey Transit's Main Line and Bergen County Line.

If you're considering living in Bergen County, we'd love to talk with you! As lifelong Northern New Jersey residents and local Realtors, we are more than happy to introduce you to the communities and homes we think you'll love. Feel free to contact us at 201-677-2027 or 201-819-3309.

Bergen County is Close to Metropolitan Living!

Living in Bergen County, you can experience all the amenities of cosmopolitan living without all the headaches associated with big-city life. Bergen County enjoys a slightly slower pace of life than you'll find in Manhattan, yet there is always something fun to do in this area, from thrilling sporting events to city-wide festivals and celebrations.

One-of-a-Kind Amenities in Your Own Backyard

While residents of Bergen County aren't far from the arts, culture, and entertainment in New York City, an entire world of opportunities is accessible close to home.

Sports fans can root for the home teams — the New Jersey Jackals baseball team based in Yogi Berra Stadium in Little Falls and the New Jersey Devils hockey team based at the Prudential Center in Newark — or cheer on the New York Giants and New York Jets from their home stadiums. Arts and culture aficionados will love the art galleries and theaters sprinkled throughout the area, too.

But when it comes to shopping and dining, Bergen County is a famous destination. Major shopping meccas like Paramus Park, Garden State Plaza, The Outlets at Bergen Town Center, and IKEA are packed in a small area within Bergen County, allowing residents to easily find their favorite shops and restaurants within minutes of their homes.
