River Edge Reviews
I love River Edge. This is the first town I've lived in where I felt at home. I've lived in Westwood, Wallington, Bogota, and Maywood and none of them compare to River Edge. I've been happy here in my 9 years of living here and I'll be sad to leave when I go off to college this coming fall. The public schools are amazing the teachers work really hard to ensure safety and happiness for their students. IT's very safe with cops patrolling the streets 24 hours 7 days a week! I have connected with all of my neighbors and I'm sure whoever will move here will have an amazing experience.
River Edge is a great family town. The school system is solid with a lot to offer. The biggest downfall to this wonderful town are the very high taxes. Most people are on small pieces of property and business is relatively small in comparison to other towns. Other than that, we love the small town feel while being in close proximity to NYC and other surrounding towns like Paramus and Englewood. It’s a wonderful town to raise children. Plenty of opportunity for sports and other recreational activities like summer camps, town pool etc. If it weren’t for the high taxes, I would have given River Edge 5 Stars.
I've lived here for most of my life so naturally I am biased as to how I view it. However, I do think that it is a great place for young families. I went through the elementary school system and had no problems with other kids and found myself prepared for middle school when it came. There is a lack of a downtown but with Oradell so close as well as access to other towns in the area, this wasn't a problem.
