Yes, Ridgwood may be "the most preppy, collar-up..." town, and it may be wealthy and well off. But just because of that, the people there are not snobs. The people are actually really nice. But you can still look for preppy collars and tiffany jewelery while u r there...
...Take it from a Ridgewood gal
"Ridgewood people are snobs!"
"Why do you say that?"
A very preppy, rich town with so many snobs. There are also some nice people though. Most people after they grow up here will move out because this place is sometimes sickening. The definition of rich kids is displayed here every day.
look for polos,and tiffany jewlery.
Ridgewood is a medium size suburban community in Bergen County. Ridgewood is located approximately 30 minutes outside of Midtown Manhattan. The population of Ridgewood is approximately 25,000 according to the 2000 United States Census. Ridgewood is an very wealthy town. Expect to see a lot of BMW's, Mercedes Benz's, Lexus's. For a nice home expect to pay over $1 million. The taxes are extreme and when I mean extreme, it's really extreme. The downtown area which is also know as " town" by locals is full of great shops and Zagat-rated restaurants. Town is the place to be if you a Ridgewood kid or a townie( a person from another town who spends a good amount of time in Ridgewood). The definition of rich kids are displayed here everyday. Many kids in Ridgewood are preps. Expect to see polos and tiffany jewelry. Also in recent years the teenagers have become some-what hipster. Many kids shop at Urban Outfitters, Free People and Anthropology. Most Ridgewood kids go thru a Abercrombie and Fitch and a Hollister phase at the beginning of middle school and it ends in the middle of their 7th grade year. Most kids try to come off as poor or ghetto but there is an extremely mall amount of poor and ghetto people in Ridgewood, there may even be no ghetto people. The "ghettoest" area of Ridgewood is South Broad Street which not really ghetto but it is where most of the black people of Ridgewood live which is at about 1% of the total population. Asians are the biggest minority in Ridgewood...more...
An amazing town in Bergen County, New Jersey that is next to Wykoff, Midland Park, Paramus, and Glen Rock.
We have 9 elementary schools, two middle schools (one east of train track, one west), and one high school, which is one of the best public schools (and better than some private ones) in the country. We have a very good musical program, along with outstanding academic and athletic programs.
We are mostly rich, but not all preppy or snobbish as many people unfairly stereotype us. Most of us are nice people.
We have a train station, a library and a lake/pool (even though it is a disgusting one.) We have a town area with a lot of shops and restaurants in the center of Ridgewood.
Many of our residents work in Ridgewood or commute to New York everyday. It is close enough to visit New York in less than an hour, but it is far enough to be in a peaceful suburb.
Some famous people that came from/live in Ridgewood are Harlan Coben, Jeff Feagles, Lawrence Frank, MC Paul Barman, Frankie Muniz, and Jordin Sparks.
Let's go to Quiznos, in Ridgewood.
99% of the people that live in ridgewood are rich and snobby. the funny thing is that that more then half of them try to come off as "gansta" or "poor". everyone knows they sell the pot behind starbucks.
anyway, the other half are the ones who take advantage of their parents and spend money like it comes out of there butt. they all look like clones of eachother in their polos, uggs, designer bags, ect. its the nicest town and nothing ever happens in ridgewood, not even close to the real "gansta life" as many ridgewood people think that they live.
"look at those uppity girls there prob from ridgewood"
