Upper Saddle River Reviews

18 reviews
All Categories
Top schools in the state, as most recently highlighted by the national recognition obtained for STEM innovation. The schools are clustered together (adjacent to the police/fire stations, as well as Borough Hall) as if the planning of the town is literally centered around its schools. Families are always very positive and supportive of each other. Many strong social ties develop into lasting friendships. The only issue is there is no downtown to enjoy a night out. However, given the location of USR (sits between Rt 17 and GSP) various options are only minutes away in any direction.

USR is a wonderful family-centric town. Residents take great pride in their homes, property and community. We are very involved in the many different community activities. Schools are blue ribbon and the teachers are top notch. The library has an amazing array of events. Although there is no town center or night life, everything is accessible within a driving distance of under 15 minutes. If you want a country-living feel, USR is the place.
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.
