Ritali, Renter in Ridgewood, NJ

We are relocating from abroad (Israel) with two kids five years old and one year old and looking for a place to live in New York Metropolitan Area.

Asked by Ritali, Ridgewood, NJ Sun Feb 13, 2011

The budget is 2500-2800$.We need 3 bedrooms. My husband is going to work in midtown Manhattan. We are looking for a safe area with good transportation to Manhattan and non-orthodox private Jewish school (The Company is ready to pay for private Jewish day school, so the children will not go back to Israel as total foreigners.)I was considering Essex/Bergen NJ but any other suggestion is welcomed.

Help the community by answering this question:


Fair Lawn is your best bet. Fair Lawn has a lot of Israelis living there. it is equidistant to two Schecter schools Oakland and New Milford. It also has frequent buses to NYC as well as two train stations.

One of the better non-orthodox Jewish schools is Solomon Schechter, and if you are considering a community with good Conservative and Reformed temples close to NYC transportation (bus to NYC is 35-40 minutes), Teaneck is a great location for both as your children will be bussed to school. You could also consider New Milford (where Schechter is located) or several other towns in Bergen County such as Fair Lawn, River Edge, Tenafly, etc. There are agood number of rental homes in your price range: give me a call and let's start looking at what is available!

Price and schools will most likely be your concern! Paramus has a Jewish school and getting to NYC is not a problem but Englewood, Englewood Cliffs and many others towns may be your answer.

Patricia is right; West Orange and Livingston are probably your best bet.
Good Luck!
