As a long time NJ resident we looked closely at every town in Northern NJ and HHK had the best of everything we were looking for. The schools were great, lots of well educated families, a town you could walk to, great restaurants, the ability to get really involved in the town or not at all and reasonable taxes compared to the rest of Bergen County. After 6 years of living here my wife and I agree this is the best town to live in and raise a family.
Review Ho-Ho-Kus
This community is very family oriented. Schools are top notch and education is considered a priority. Volunteerism is also very important in the schools, Local government, fire, ambulance and in the schools.
It's a very small, wealthy neighborhood. The small community is located in a beautiful part of New Jersey which makes it a nice place to live.
