Ridgefield Park, founded more than 300 years ago, still clings to its small-town roots in the late 1990s. The village has the oldest continuous Fourth of July celebration in the nation. For 103 years, neither war, economic turmoil, nor social upheaval have interrupted the annual day-long event. The tiny village compromises 1 square mile in southeast Bergen County, and many of its families have been in the town for generations. Local politics are non-partisan; the Board of Commissioners has never had republican or democrats, just citizens. The town is located in the middle of everything; routes 46, 80, 95 all run through it, which makes an easy trip to NYC to the east and Passaic and Morris to the west. A significant number of Ridgefield Park’s home were built more than 100 years ago, most are charming and very well maintained. The village is also home to a handful of apartments and condominiums. The eastern edge is filled with numerous recreation areas – pool, numerous fields, and 6 baseball diamonds.
