If geographic diversity is your thing, step up to North Bergen, the township with the second most hills per square mile in the United States after San Francisco. To get acquainted, take a walk along the Hudson River or explore the trails of the Palisades, the line of steep cliffs that rise from the waterfront. Partially situated on the Hudson River, the Hudson Palisades rise from the waterfront, while the northern part of the town sits atop the plateau. The cuesta, or slope, on the its west side makes North Bergen the city with the second most hills per square mile in the United States after San Francisco, some of which are extremely steep.
Walk, run or play ball at James J. Braddock Park, named after the North Bergen fighter in the movie “Cinderella Man”. This open space gem atop the hills of the Palisades offers you spectacular views of Manhattan, the magnificent Woodcliff Lake, nature trails and picnic spots.
As for the food? North Bergen’s got what you want. From Cuban to Italian, Peruvian to Argentinian, savor your pick of international cuisine as you dine near the shores of the Hudson River or atop the slopes of the city.
