Glen Rock is a very safe and sheltered area. Though more diversity has been introduced in recent years, it is mostly caucasian. Education system is really important to everybody, and the school sports culture is also really heavily celebrated. The neighbors are always nice and supportive, and I love living here.

Glen Rock has some of the top schools in state, is on the train line to Manhattan, has excellent sports teams, virtually ZERO crime and the value of your homes will just continue to rise. It's truly an amazing place to raise a family. Has a cute downtown and is a stones throw away to ridgewood without all of the riff raff that comes in from neighboring towns. A+ for Glen Rock.
Been living here for 5 months now and couldnt be happier. Such a beautiful, clean, safe town. Everything you can possibly need is within a 10 min drive.
