About Edgewater

Edgewater is an upscale, ethnically diverse urban community that fronts the Hudson River on Bergen County's eastern border. Once a fabulous resort area for New Yorkers and then a hardworking industrial city, the borough today is part of New Jersey's Gold Coast, with luxury high-rises lining the waterfront. New upscale shops, movie theaters and gourmet food stores have recently been built to accommodate the residents.
