Palisades Park has been my home for 17 years. I attended all three schools: ECC, Lindbergh, and Palisades Park High School. The town itself is mostly Korean and so coming from a Korean background, I have been influenced a lot. My favorite part in Palisades Park is Broad Ave. Centered in the middle of the town, Broad Ave is a place for hanging out and just having fun. I go there with my friends at least three times a week, going to cafes and restaurants. The food I definitely recommend. Overall, Palisades Park offers a variety of things to do.

Palisades Park is a great place to socialize with family and friends! Broad Avenue is a popular street known for their Korean cafes and restaurant. Besides visiting the Korean cafes and restaurants, there are many other places to go to, such as the karaoke!
Palisades Park as a town does have the essentials. But, don't expect a diverse community. The town's majority is comprised of a Korean community, which is seen as K-Town within the Bergen County area. From my experience, I wish there was more available to do within the town. There are a lot of cafe's and restaurants, but there are not enough recreational things to explore within the town's borders.
