Woodcliff Lake Reviews

My experience here in w\Woodcliff lake has truly been an amazing one. My family and i moved to this town three years ago and we cannot even imagine living any where else. I am a senior attending Pascack Hills High School and the education available to me is truly outstanding. The school provides every student with MacBooks which really enhances the education quality. I am surrounded by large beautiful homes and amazing restaurants. Diversity isn't the best here with such a high caucasian population but no one treats anyone differently. The people here are just so kind and the sense of community gives a very welcoming feeling. The Ridge Dinner is probably the town's most popular location. There are also many parks and entertaining locations here so you won't ever feel bored here. There are many local stores that are always hiring teenagers in high school. There are a couple farms locally that sell fresh and organic fruits and vegetables. Overall great place to live
