Bogota Reviews

22 reviews
All Categories
Bogota is very unique being a small suburb of only around 7000 thousand people located closely to New York City. The town was founded in the late 1800's during the borough boom in Bergen county, and named after the Bogart's who were the fist dutch settlers to arrive in the area.

The town originally consisted of mainly Irish, and Italian, but in recent years seen an influx of various Hispanic groups moving in from the city causing tension, and issues in the community. Mainly in the schools which have declined in quality. The housing prices like in the area as a whole has increased, but no so much because of Bogota, but because of the convenience factor being next to NYC with apartments being build, and planned to gain on it.
Review Bogota
In this area, our community have people who are extremely physically active and some who are obese. My town have a three recreational baseball/ softball fields surrounded by a track. The track is accessible for everyone and the two out of the three fields are open to the public to use. Personally I bike or run at Overpeck Park which is only 5 minutes away from my house. The park features playground, open fields, canoeing, kayaking, a baseball field, softball field, dog park and roughly about 5 miles of track. This is a park that many people use to bring dogs or family for recreational use.
Bogota, NJ is a very small town. We are surrounded by many mom-and-pop shops which offer great customer service. In order to go to the bigger chain stores, we would have to drive out of town to Paramus or Hackensack which is only about 10 minutes away. Great town. Great schools. Great Police Department.
