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!
