I've been living in bergenfield for a little over five years. So far, my experience has been great. It's a pretty nice, clean, quiet and safe neighborhood. Living for a little over five year, i have to say i have no complaints. Bergenfield has been treating me well. I like living here because I am very close to the transportations. If i have a car problem, all i have to do is hop on the bus with no problem. Buses comes every ten to fifteen minutes. Another reason why i like bergenfield is when i take a walk during anytime of the day, i feel so safe and sound. So many cops are patrolling all over the neighborhood.
In every corner of the streets, there's a lot of stores, where you can go shopping, grocery shopping and of course, eat at a restaurant with your family and friends.
Change? I would not change anything , i think bergenfield is one of the best and safe place to live in.
Review Bergenfield
Bergenfield is a quaint town very close to NYC. Getting to NYC is a breeze and you could do it in 30 mins or under depending on traffic. Bergenfield was rated one of the safest towns in NJ in the past years and it's totally true. I feel extremely safe in Bergenfield. Theres not a lot to do in town but we surround a bunch of other great towns with fun stuff to do. The schools are average public schools, but offer a ton of AP classes and do pay for standardized tests such as the SATs. Overall great town.
Bergenfield is a place where someone can call home. Everyone is so welcoming here and no one is left out of place. Being a student in this town for the past 13 years has made me realize a lot about our town . Our town is the only town that has culture and diversity. You could walk into a classroom at Bergenfield High School and Roy W Brown Middle School and see the amount of diversity we have, it is truly beautiful. Bergenfield is known for their marching bands and sports. Bergenfield will truly bring people together because I have met a bunch of amazing people there and I am blessed that I moved here.
