A town in Bergen County which connects NJ with NY via the George Washington Bridge. Italian gangsters commute between their New York operations to Fort Lee to reside in the McMansions that are in the Palisade area where Fort Lee borders Cliffside Park. Most of the rich people are Russians, Italians, Koreans, and in random situations there are wealthy black rappers and athletes such as Justin Tuck of the New York Giants and the rapper, Fabolous. Jay-Z also maintains an unknown residence and has been sighted at locations like the Burger King. For the most part everyone (rich and middle class) is Korean, and Fort Lee is often called "Fort Ree" to emphasize the Asian influence. Real estate is expensive, beautiful, and abundant. Accessibility to the city is a beautiful thing, as well as accessibility to Edgewater and all the other towns. Its moments away from the Northern Valley part of Bergen County (Closter, Tenafly, Demarest, etc.) including Alpine, which is top 5 most wealthy towns according to Forbes. Basically, Fort Lee is one of the many excellent, affluent, and elite towns of Bergen County.
Sally: Party this weekend in Cliffside, whose going?!
Tommy: I am, how about you Billy?
Billy: Cliffside Park? I would never step foot in that Raider-infested town. Besides there's a party on Arcadian Way in Fort Lee; I hear the library in their quaint seven bedroom house can host a 70-person party!
Sally & Billy: Awesome!
Pronounced “frot – raee”
Pronounced “frot – raee” it is probably one of New Jersey’s smallest towns approx. 2x4 miles. Situated a top the Palisades, and separated from NEW YORK by the George Washington Bridge. Knowing Frot Raee’s proximity to New York will explain the type of people that live here. The general make-up of the town consists of rich older Jews who moved from Washington Heights when the Blacks and Puerto Ricans moved in. Next we have the rich Koreans (and other Asian persuasions) who’s companies pay for them to move to America for a few years and work in N.Y. offices. Then you have your general upper class Whites and their wigger kids who are spoiled and think the world owe them something. Finally you have your fast growing HISPANIC population that is migrating from Washington Heights which are pushing the Jews out again. Its “kinda” funny. The Korean population is about half of the town, I remember there being about five kids in my elementary school that were Asian by the time I graduated High School there were 105 in my graduating class of 225. HOLY CRAP!!!! The White kids think they are “gangstas” just because their dealers come across from Washington Heights. Everyone think because mommy and daddy have some money they can do whatever they want. This a great place to grow up. P.S. the sports program at the Fort Lee HS SUCKS.
A town in NJ way too small where everyone knows everyone and gossip spreads quicker than the one fake I.D. everyone shares. The kids drive their mommy and daddy's Escalades, Mercedes-Benzs, and BMW's. On the weekends they go to Ny for a "chill night out" and drop $500 on classy dinners downtown and maybe visit their parents uptown. All snobby, rude, oh and the boys are fake gangsters.
Waitress: Can you kids afford to eat at this restaurant?
Kid #1: Um, duh we're from Fort Lee. My mom gave me her platinum card.
Kid #2: HA! The times must be hard, my dad gave me his black card.
Waitress: In that case let me suggest the beluga caviar and the finest wine in the house!
