Saddle brook is nice quiet town close to everything! Garden state mall, Bergen outlets, Paramus park mall are all in the area. Saddle River park is very nice and host an annual 4th of July fireworks over the lake. Houses are well kept and a lot of new house construction going on in the area. Residents take care of their properties. The housing market seems to be getting better with houses selling quickly and higher than other towns. I enjoy living in saddle brook and commute to work everyday from either Broadway Fairlawn nj transit or plauderville nj transit.

Saddle Brook is rated as one of America's best towns to live in for some of the best reasons. There is little crime, and while education can be better, the school systems are decent, with three elementary schools scattered around the town and one connected middle and high school. A large part of Saddle Brook is community involvement. Town council, the mayor, and first responders appear at many town events and are integrated into the resident's daily lives while the residents of Saddle Brook make you feel like you're family, through both good and bad times.
Great town, excellent location, very close to NYC. There could be more healthy food options in town. Clean, family-friendly, great schools!
