Hillsdale

Twenty-five miles from Times Square and convenient to the Garden State Parkway, which cuts through its western end, Hillsdale is primarily a community of well-kept single-family homes on spacious lots. Colonials, ranches, and split-levels are in abundance, and there are a few townhomes as well. Many New Jersey residents know the borough of 10,500 for Demarest Farms, which has apple and pumpkin picking in the autumn. Broadway and Hillsdale Avenue intersect at the borough’s downtown, which features the 1869 train station, a manicured veterans’ memorial, and mom-and-pop retail shops of the deli, bagels, hardware, hair salons, ice cream, and restaurants. The town hosts annual events like a children’s fishing fall festival, Halloween parade, and apple gathering at the Demarest Farms orchard, all make Hillsdale decidedly family-friendly. Upstairs at the train station, hobbyists exhibit model railroads. Hillsdale has its own swim club, Stonybrook that offers members a snack bar, a basketball court, parties, live bands, activities, and playgrounds. The swim club has a total of 5 pools and offers learn-to-swim programs along with swim and dive teams. The Hillsdale public school district has two elementary schools Ann Blanche Smith and Meadowbrook and George White Middle School for grades five through eight. Students advance to Pascack Valley High School, part of the Pascack Valley Regional High School District.
