Geography of the County


Bergen County is bordered on the east side by the Palisades, which drop off 550 feet to the mighty Hudson River. The George Washington Bridge meets Bergen County in Fort Lee and is used daily by many Bergen residents. Our location makes for an easy drive to the Jersey Shore and its 120 miles of beaches and oceanfront. And in the opposite direction are Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains.
