Excellent school district. Neighbors are friendly. The town provides good privacy between houses. It's quiet. Relatively low crime rate. Easy commute, close to 2 major highways, public transportations and shops. Relative better property tax rates over other towns.

Great family oriented town with super small town feel and conscientious community and government. Lots of intramural sports. Becoming more diverse, which is great. Proud to be a resident.
Upper Saddle River is a lovely town from the exterior; but, on the inside it resembles a shark tank. Everyone in the community dwells off of competition. It is a high stress environment masked by picket fences and dogs in the front yard. Every kid is raised to be a doctor or lawyer. The emphasis on being successful steals any will to be happy. The worth of the citizens is measured by the sports cars in the driveway and the number of bedrooms in the house. Every kid dreams of leaving USR while every adult dreams of living there. Ironic isn't it.
