Bergenfield is an extremely diverse, loving and accepting community. I have lived here my entire life, and this town has been so kind and accepting of my family and I. Bergenfield is diverse not only ethnically, but in every way possible. The town is small, so everyone knows one another, but this also means that most people care about each other as well. There are always things to do in town, from watching movies at the local theater to seeing the high school band march down in the annual parades.
The schools are good especially, the elementary and High school. Neighbors are friendly and it's overall a safe town. We have lots to offer with stores and restaurants. The location is great, about 45 to NYC!
