Life in The Village of Ridgewood is a rare combination of cosmopolitan living and rich tradition. One of the larger settlements in the area, with a population of close to 25,000, Ridgewood offers something for everyone. Tree lined streets, lovely homes, a vibrant community, a quaint downtown area…. to name just a few.
Ridgewood is home to The Valley Hospital, the very heart of the community serving more than 400,000 residents in the surrounding towns.
Summer brings a 4th of July Celebration that starts with a Parade and ends with a spectacular fireworks display, the tradition is over 100 years old and some years there are even skydivers.
The winter is a festive time around town with the Tree Lighting. The tree is setup near the train station * and welcomes residents home every evening during the holidays.
Springtime in town is yet another pleasant time, the smell of the trees and flowers can be enjoyed throughout the village but best enjoyed in the downtown area.
Ridgewood’s public school system features 10 schools serving pupils from kindergarten through graduation at Ridgewood High School. With Penn Station in New York City less than 20 miles away, whether driving in on the accessible highways or taking the NJ Transit train, it’s a perfect place for the commuter to make their new home.
