Bergen County's Location Advantages

Bergen County is uniquely positioned in the center of the Boston / Washington D.C. corridor, serving as a prime location at the heart of the New York / New Jersey Metropolitan Region. Our location is not only advantageous for businesses but for residents as well with close proximity to many cultural and recreational opportunities in New York City and around Bergen County.

Totaling nearly 9,000 acres and 21 parks, Bergen County residents can ski, skate, jog, cycle, golf on one of our five golf courses, camp overnight, tour a zoo, visit a Revolutionary War battle site, take a nature hike, play softball and tennis and much more. We are also a short drive from the Jersey Shore and its 120 miles of beaches, as well as the Pocono Mountains for summer and winter recreation.

About the Infrastructure

Bergen County's well planned and abundant infrastructure is one of our most important assets. Our commitment to continuous maintenance and upgrades to roads, bridges, and mass transit have drawn commerce and industry to the area for decades. Our superior road network has made Bergen County home to five malls and MetLife Stadium, home to the New York Giants and Jets.
