Formed in 1842, North Bergen is bordered on the north by Ridgefield and Cliffside Park and on the south by Guttenberg. To its east and west are the Hudson and Passaic Rivers, respectively. This area, like many in Bergen County, was home to Native Americans before being settled by the Dutch. Situated on the Palisades, North Bergen is considered the second ‘hilliest’ municipality in the country, just after San Fransisco. Beginning in 1907, a group of do-gooders called ‘roundsman’ patrolled the streets until 1923, when the city’s dedicated police force was first organized. Residents today enjoy entertainment attractions in both New York and New Jersey, including the Meadowlands, Madison Square Garden, Liberty State Park, and Rockefeller Center.
