I love the close community feeling the town gives. After a year of living, there are many familiar faces that could be seen around the town. The different shops and restaurants give a nice variety of places to eat out right in Ridgefield Park. The multitude of parks and nice seating areas can easily lead to a nice day walking around the town, as it is also very safe. Many communities also have a home in the town. One thing I would like to see changed is mainly the school climate, as during the time of writing this it is very tumultuous.

My town is ridgefield park. I like to live in this town. Here is very clean, neat, convenient. First of all, there is no traffic. There are major high ways like route 46, 80, 4. Although there is in traffic, my town has not have problem. Also, neighborhood are very friendly. They greet other people with warm heart. I cannot see any problem with neighborhood.
I recommend that main street has to be changed. There are many shops nearby main street. But, it is too old, and narrow on the road. We need to renovate main street area.
Ridgefield Park is a great place to live close to major highways. It is very accessible and close to all the convenience stores. Public transportation is also very easily accessible so it is a great place for people who work in New York City to live and commute. Neighborhood is also very safe and residents are generally very nice and friendly. Public schools are great so families with little children will also benefit from the great public school system.
