CRESSKILL TODAY

    Cresskill today takes up approx. 2.1 square miles of area with a population of 8,212 people,
    a full -time police department and a volunteer fire department & ambulance corps. Located only 7.5 miles
    north of the GWB, the George Washington Bridge to NYC, Cresskill is predominately a residential community
    with a total of 2,702 housing units.

    Known for its attractive tree-lined streets, small town charm & tranquility, the diverse special blend of
    Cresskill’s residents are very proud of their hometown. Convenient location with easy commute to New York
    City, small borough size and a terrific school system which is small enough to offer individual attention yet
    rich with extra activities & AP (Advance Placement) offerings with an outstanding curriculum as well as before
    and after school programs, all make this town very desirable and special.

    Families with school age children are finding Cresskill to be an extraordinary choice when it comes to
    education. Academic excellence in a caring environment is the hallmark of Cresskill’s schools, teaching
    learning skills & self esteem along with the basic curriculum. The Cresskill Jr. Sr. High school continues to
    achieve great results when it comes to SAT scores, well above the national and state averages, graduates
    are attending four year colleges in extremely high percentages and are going on to some of the most
    prestigious  institutions. As a small high school it is able to offer individualized attention not only to students
    but to parents as well, enabling a true partnership between school staff and the community.
    Technology plays a key roll in education these days and in Cresskill it is integrated on all levels with a
    computer to student ratio of 3:1.

    Cresskill has also an excellent reputation when it comes to quality municipal services and town
    management in general, all due to a very strong sense of community and cooperation on all levels.

    A quaint downtown Cresskill business district consists of shops, restaurants, banks, a public library
    & the Borough Hall. This area is very well defined so that the overwhelming majority of the boroughs space
    dedicated to residential use is unimpeded by any commercial encroachment .

    NYC is a short driving distance away via the George Washington Bridge which is only 7.5 miles from
    the center of Cresskill thus making it an ideal suburb location for commuting to and from Manhattan.
    Rte. 9W & The Palisades Parkway, both along the east side of the borough, put the commuter within minutes
    driving time of the GW Bridge.  Public transportation is also available with frequent direct bus service to NYC
    as well as to other points in NJ. Although currently Cresskill has no direct train service from town, commuter
    trains are available not too far away with park-n'-ride stations in River Edge and Hackensack, about 15-20
    minutes away by car. Discussions are underway to possibly revive the rail line running through the center of
    town for commuter purposes. Although historically the coming of the original train line in the 1860’s played a
    major roll in the further development of the area, now days, with the exception of very limited freight activity,
    this line is hardly in use. The possibility of future direct light rail service is till in the discussion & planning
    stages and a while away, however, it remains a viable option which when & if brought to fruition will create
    added value to this already hot in-demand  real estate region.

    Major Airports in the area include Newark Liberty in NJ, about 30 minutes driving time, and two NY
    airports as well. La Guardia is approximately 30 minutes away and JFK at about 45 minutes to an hour.
    Travel times are approximate and of course depend on traffic so it is always wise to plan airport trips at off
    peak times to avoid rush-hour traffic when possible.

    Since its birth, Cresskill has provided a place for people to raise their families and build a sense of
