Paramus, an upper-middle class boro located in the heart of Bergen County, also known as the land of 10,000 malls... well actually just three: Garden State Plaza, Paramus Park, Bergen Mall and a ton of other retail centers that line the choked-up arteries of Routes 17 & 4. A place where gridlock is a way of life and the Holiday shopping rush takes on a whole new meaning. Paramus is also home to the most neurotic cops in all of Bergen County... where else can you get a ticket for making a left turn at 7PM at a no left turn street (from 5PM -7PM), or talking on your cellphone in the middle of Rt.17 when clearly a million other people are doing the same exact thing around you. It is obvious that this is a place where people are on the the malls that is, with their platinum credit cards in hand. Where else in Jersey do New Yorkers come to shop but here? But eager shoppers beware, if you plan to max out your credit cards on a Sunday, the only sign you will see at a store entrance is "Sorry, we're closed."
Garden State Plaza (285 stores), Paramus Park (110), Bergen Mall (70)

1. A town in Northern New Jersey consisting of 3 Malls, the Bergen Mall(spanish people and old people), Paramus Park Mall(white people), and Garden State Plaza(everyone). Paramus Police tend to be anal, similar to Fort Lee Police.
2. A place where you must be rich to live.
3. Not the ghetto.
4. A place where I represent the upper middle class.
Paramus, located between Maywood, Ridgewood, Rochelle Park, Oradell, and whatever, is a town of the developer.

Where shopping is a daily activity for most. Paramus has 2 of everything, sometimes even more. If there is a McDonald's on route 17, there's one on route 4 (that goes for every other place too). The shopping malls are Garden State Plaza, Paramus Park, The Fashion Center, & The Bergen Mall. It's the town where people come to shop because we don't have sales tax on clothing. It is also the town that is being taken over by traffic & asians. Wait, are we becoming Fort Wee?
Where do you live? Paramus. Ohhhh, I've shopped there before.

the best town to live in bergen county. The people there are not quite like any other town. The drama is usually to much to handle. A quater of the town was handed over to Asians (mostly koreans) in the past 5 years. Good school system.. tons of shopping. Paramus park is where the middle schoolers hang out.. and GSP gets the high school + older crowd. No one from Paramus will be caught dead on the highways during rush hour, we navigate the back roads like pro's. The kids party more then most towns, soo growing up in Paramus is like no other. =)
paramus is the shit.

"Mall capital of the world." One of the richest towns in New Jersey. Home of the strictest Blue law ever. You can't buy anything besides clothes and food on Sundays. 3 Malls in Paramus: Paramus Park, Garden State Plaza, & the Bergen Mall. Paramus sucks ass because we're broke. All of the teachers blew their money on SmartBoards and new computers, and the mayor does basically nothing. Paramus is home to the Spartans. They're actually a pretty good team. High Schoolers are slightly insane. The schools are all graphitti'd and pretty sucky. Both middle schools are crap. The kids in Paramus aren't too bad. Too much drama. It's really annoying. Fist fights and middle school sluts. Not much drug use. Cocaine incidents are so rare they make the news. And the main drug is smoking. Teens all have sex casually. Paramus kids overuse Facebook, are perverted, and are mainly white. There are tons of Asian kids, however they're never involved in any drama because they're studying. The main population is Catholic, but the number of Jews isn't low. Lots of Indians too. Barely any black kids or Spanish kids. Tons of chain stores. Panera, Hollister, Abercrombie, PetCo, McDonalds, Payless, Wendy's, etc. Usually doubles up on stores--if there is a McDonalds, there's another on the other side of town.Paramus isn't all it's hyped up to be. It's pretty nice if you aren't an annoying crackhead middle school whore. Also nice if you aren't looking for weed. Cause there are basically NO drugs in Paramus.
Typical Paramus middle school girl: a white Catholic who wears Hollister short shorts, talks on Facebook about how "OMFG MY LIIFEEE FUCCKIINGGG SUCKSSS. FML." Hates her school (who doesn't?), and shops everyday.

Paramus, NJ is the Mall Capital of The world. It is one of the most wealthy towns in North Jersey. Paramus is the town where the school systems are great, and there are many different types of people. Whatever street you choose to go down in Paramus there is certain to be at least 6 mansions/Estates estates are usually found at the end of a long private driveway in Paramus with a ton of private land to follow. If you want to live in Paramus your going to have to have plenty of money, otherwise Paramus may not be the best town for you. If you don't have the money to afford one house here don't even bother looking for any others. Because the cheapest house in Paramus is just about 2 million and thats the CHEAPEST ! Oh dear, so that is pretty much the over view of Paramus, It's gotta a lot of malls, great school systems and loads of cash. By the way, most people you see will be driving Mercedes, Audi's and BMW's so if you come here make sure to bring one of them !
