Paramus is a thriving community in Bergen County as many residents who grew up in town want to move back when they buy their own home. According to the 2010 census about 48% of the population is under 44 so that makes for a good number of younger people. As far as activities go there is no lack in Paramus. The borough is home to 2 county parks and 4 golf courses as well as other smaller parks and athletic facilities. Add that to the entertainment options, shopping, and other amenities and you have a great place to call home. Paramus is home to a number of major shopping center which has helped to offset the property taxes in town. It may be known as a retail mecca but Paramus still maintains a nice quiet hometown feel.

Both are wonderful towns and have rail transportation as well as but for NYC commuters. Allendale has a charming downtown. Woodcliff Lake is closer to downtown Westwood. Both towns have great schools and provide good services.... more
Of course. You should be able to rent something like that for around $2,000-$2,500/mo. The only thing expensive in Ridgewood is housing. Milk and bread and cable TV and gasoline are the same as anywhere else.

Ask your agent to interview all the neighbors and obtain a kid inventory. I do it all the time. You can make a better judgement once you know who has what in terms of kids, ages, etc. I recently sold a home to a couple on Hollywood, but there were plenty of kids behind the elementary school they backed up to. If there are really no kids around, that might give me some pause.
Definitely -- upscale community with close-knit feeling, some older smaller homes with longtime residents, some larger newer ones or renovated charming ones. Schools are great, rec sports for kids are popular, etc.... more
Since no realtors have replied to your answer. Do you know about Wallington? It's not thtat bad for the areas it's around, but I would not want to live there. The pictures of Riverview make it look like a metropolitan paradise. Wallington is nice if you want "variety" with a litte less crime. Schools are one of the worst in Bergen County, not the worst but one of the worst.... more
Septic Systems can be a tricky issue, especially with the post-1990 NJ state requirements. To confirm the town engineer's comment, I would call Bill Severs at (201) 447-2340. He is a septic installer/escavator that' been around forever. See if there are any alternative methods that he has installed like a larger turkey-mound or aerator system etc. If so, find that engineer that designed the system. I would ask Wyckoff's engineer "What if the home was kept as a 3BR home.. then what?"
