Tenafly is a small town, located 15 minutes from the George Washington Bridge. It is quiet, has fine schools, quality housing, recreational facilities, parks and woodlands.
The town is filled with very affluent people that are oftentimes just trying to keep up with the Jones'. The positive aspects of this town range from being in very close proximity to New York City to having an excellent public school system.
