Currently the lowest house rental in GR is $2,900. Ridgewood has a few condo/townhome rental options available for the low $2000 range however the lowest price right now for a full house rental in Ridgewood is $2,750. (possibly negotiable). What is your time frame? I do have a rental listing coming up in the next 2 months for a Glen Rock home in your price range. (3 beds, 2 baths/updated)
As far as Glen Rock vs. Ridgewood goes, both towns offer similar amenities. Both have commuting options (train and bus), top rated schools (GRHS rated #4), downtown entertainment, etc. I'm from the area and live here in GR, on the border of Ridgewood and take advantage of both towns amenities. A fabulous place to live!
