Bergen County is one of if not the richest county in New Jersey. New Jersey is consistently, one of the richest states in the county.
Bergen county is a suburb of New York city, or as others refer to it one of NYC's unofficial boroughs.
It is rich with history as well, which is why residents see "Washington's Retreat Route 1776" throughout New Bridge. If Washington's Army didn't have the new map that he used while retreating from the British after losing in Washington Heights, which showed "New Bridge" he would/could have lost the war. The old "new" bridge still stands, there is a museum, and restaurant, though that's in New Milford...all throughout BC Washington has made history.
Our neighbors, like Englewood are famous to, they are the birthplace of hip hop, the first record was done there.
Back to what makes Bergenfield shine, she is a diverse town in many ways, people from all different ethnicity's, religions, incomes, etc. come from all over the world to call Bergenfield home. Many people, especially city residents dream their whole lives/youth of moving to Jersey/Bergen County, those that work hard and are lucky may wind up blessed with their own place in Bergenfield. All of them have their own reasons for wanting to be here, but all of them good reasons. I will touch upon a few of the major fine points and advantages.
There is always something to do in Bergenfield.
There are parks,restaurants, shopping, movies, night life. People from neighboring towns (such as New Milford, Domont or Dontmount-lol) will go to Bergenfield especially at night because we have so much to offer, though our neighboring towns, like Teaneck, Hackensack and Englewood, have a lot to offer too. People will mix and mingle with one another. The parties are a whole lot of fun, safe and don't end until early the next morning. You can go to the shore or Six Flags Great Adventure in the summer, Mountain Creek in the winter and the Paramus malls which is the country's shopping capital, year round.
Bergenfield offers its residents a cosmopolitan lifestyle, just 5 minutes from the GWB by car (or the Express Service Bus) and less than 15 on the 11C bus, as for the Lincoln tunnel it takes longer to park then to drive there-lol!
There have been celebrities mostly NY Yankees, rappers, writers, people famous in their own field/right like famous doctors working in prestigious hospitals in the city.
Though the school system is phenomenal, particularly Lincoln School, the high school teachers themselves are awful-no wonder crazy stuff happens. Unlike other communities in New Jersey the residents of Bergenfield are not disadvantaged (though some teachers will be very bad) we have no reason to fail, the school system overall isn't failing us though some teachers are very angry, bitter, jaded and yes oppressive. This will prepare students for the harsh realities of life.
Generally the people are very good, decent, nice, friendly, and remember you. Aesthetically we are very good looking, well groomed, and stylish dressers. We are articulate, smart, well educated, responsible, good credit, open-minded and sophisticated. We know how to hold our own, take care of ourselves in situations all the while maintaining class. We carry ourselves with confidence and self-respect. We judge others based upon their personality and who we click with. We are positive, charasmitic, family oriented, and loving.
Overall it is a dream to live in Bergenfield.
It will improve your character and get you to grow as a person.
You won't understand the Greatness of Bergen County if you aren't from there, justs like noone can truly describe what love (or heaven) is or means to them-you just have to experience it to really know.
Bergen County is The Elite.
Bergen County wouldn't be what it is without Bergenfields influence and style.
Where is the best place I could think to live?
Why would anyone ever want to leave Bergenfield?
THE FIELD is to Bergen County what the LES used to be to Manhattan. Big dicks, big hair, big attitude make this vibrant, boisterous, yet surprisingly well-heeled community easily recognizable from the rest of bland, uncharacteristic Bergen County. 167X, all aboard!
Hedge Funder from Wharton: I just closed on a unit in NoLiTa.
Colleague: Sucker, I just closed in Bergenfield. It's 20 minutes into the city and has an authentic New York flavor that Manhattan severely lacks, post-Giuliani administration. Next time you go back to the Midwest to collect rent check from daddy, why don't you stay there for good? Or might as well shack up in Franklin Lakes with the rest of your predictable cohorts, once your mail order bride has shipped in to hide the fact that you secretly want me to fistpound your ass. How'd you even get hired with this firm? I only hate you because you're too stupid to hate yourself.
aka: B-FieLd or the Fields. The 'ghettos' of Bergen COunty- the men: strong, tough, and can outdrink anyone you know and the Ladies are tough, witty, can outdrink anyone you know, and easily steal your boyfriend- just as easily as we stole the Hollister shirts we're wearing. We don't act hard because of the fact that we are 10 minutes away from the city- and more inner-city residents send their kids to our high school, or because every party ends in a fight-- but we act hard because we literally could kick the shit outta any other town around. We carry our Coach bags proudly- probably because they are fake- and we look forward to running into those "Dousche-mont" kids and New Milford losers at our 7-11 or "Club Wendy's". Deep down, we're hated.. but it's only because they wish they were us. Tenafly- with their preppy outfits, and new Mercedes cars, and Old Tappan- which is a wannabe Tenafly- ain't got shit on us. So, yes, maybe there are more Phillipinos living under one roof than you have living on your whole block- but we represent the dirty Jersey to the fullest- and what would Bergen County be without its' projects?
Yo, I went to that party in Bergenfield, and I was scared for my life-- there were Phillipinos everywhere and most of the kids had guns.
Small suburban town in Northern New Jersey. Bergenfield is only 10 minutes away from New York City. Everyone in Bergenfield wants to be "gangster." There is also a huge Filipino population that is now growing exponentially, who also try to act gangster. THere is a very small minority of people in Bergenfield that are actually themselves. Bergenfield has been written about in books and news articles and over time, bergenfield has become a "teenage wasteland." The educational system in Bergenfield is horrible and there seems to be no hope for improvement. Bergenfield is a great tourist site if u want to go somewhere where there is absolutelty nothing to do and no where to go.
The town across the river is like Bergenfield becuase 70% of the people are filipino and everyone is acting gangster. Smart people are mad fun of and dumbass kids are lauded for acts of stupidty.
a pretty decent town located in bergen county, north jersey. Bergenfield which has a large philapenis population is the neighboring town of Dushmont and Teaneck. There are many landmarks in Bergenfield like memorial field, Hot Dog place, Peyton Williams acting retarded on washington Avenue and more. Their are living legends in bergenfield like Danny Volmer and the stuffed bear at bergenfield high school. People hate Mr. Ragasa for he has no fucking clue about the sport of basketball. The class of 2006 has beef with each other. The class of 2005 has diverted into the mist of oblivion. The class of 2004 wishes they were still thought of. The class of 2003 is unemployed.
bergenfield owns dumont, "Ilike this new joint royal hotdogs!"
