The best thing about Little Ferry is it’s easiest commute to NYC. As a person originally from Long Island, I’ve lived in Little Ferry about a year and a half. I’ll share my experience. The people aren’t friendly. My neighbors for instance stare. I break the awkwardness by saying hello, and that’s when they’ll finally say hello. 😂 Awkward. I once was pulled over in front of my house in Little Ferry. When I asked the officer the cause, he responded that I’d driving on the wrong side of the road. For those that know Little Ferry there is no wrong side of the road, just one center lane, and driver takes turns letting the other through. As a matter of fact, the streets are so small that there isn’t any overnight parking on the streets. All cars must be in a driveway between 2am-6am daily. In the winter, if it starts snowing while your car is parked during the daytime on the street, you will get a ticket. No street parking if there is a snow flake.

Located in saught after Bergen county. Small family friendly town enriched with many cultures, great schools with students attending the highly ranked Bergen County Technical Schools or Ridgefield Park Junior/Senior High School. Police heavily involved with youth athletic recreation league, town provides a senior center. Many houses of worship, quick access to public transportation (20 min NYC) and minutes from all major highways (Routes 46, 80, 17, NJ Turnpike), close to several shopping centers, restsurants, Overpeck county parks. Close to major shopping malls, national sports/concert venues(Giants, Jets stadium), 3 major hospitals (Hackensack University Medical Center, Holy Name Hospital & Englewood Hospital). Flood insurance requirements for some but major flooding has only happened twice in my 50 years here. Some areas do not flood and do not a require flood insurance. Overall great little community to raise a family or for those who commute to NYC often and also retirees.
It's a nice small friendly and convenient town. Very easy commute to new york city. Convenient shopping at a nice large shop rite. A new development of a variety of restaurants, Wal-Mart, stores and small fast food places to go. With a lovely outside sitting and walking area for families to take a stroll. A lovely lake in town to walk area for fitness or just sit and watch the geese. Baseball field to watch the little league kids. Affordable garden apartments near the water with a nice comfortable living setting. A family friendly library. Easy access to several highways. Convenient twenty four hour laundry place.
