It's a nice, safe suburb of New York City with a lot of buses connecting to neighboring towns and while there's so much diversity among various Hispanic cultures, non-Hispanics can feel out-of-place sometimes and have a hard time finding work. Public schools have much to improve on, and living costs have gone up over the last decade. The park is lovely, and there's lots of good restaurants. There are so many healthcare providers that it's sometimes hard to differentiate good from the bad.

The diversity in North Bergen really makes up for whatever it may lack. The amount of different cultures that live together her e is quite amazing. Lot's of different Mom and Pop restaurants of different cuisines are on every block as well as bakeries and stores. The elderly always have opportunities to go out and do things semi independently with the help of countless programs set up by the town government. The kids also have a plethora of activities to take part in from sports at the towns recreation center, to different programs at school or the library. The school system is ok they do a lot for the younger kids.
I moved into North Bergen a year ago. So far no problem with anything really comfortable living town. There's always buses passing by in Bergenline Ave so if you don't have a reliable transportation the bergenline buses got you covered!
