It’s a small town with mediocre schools. There are two 7-11 and one Walgreens. We just got a new Farmers market! People are kind and you’re in the middle of other bigger towns

Waldwick is a great town, with great down to earth people. Really good for young families with a really nice park and lake. We’ve lived here for 6 years after moving in from Brooklyn and we just love how everyone here is approachable and friendly. The train station is nearby with plenty of parking and a comfortable ride to NYC. My wife and I wish it had a nice walkable downtown area, but Ridgewood Ho Ho Kus and Glen Rock are not far away.
Waldwick is very much a family town. It is not a very large town but thats what makes it so personable. Great schools, close neighbors, many small shops/businesses and easy access to the train or major highways.
