Ridgewood Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 23 photos
A great NYC suburban town in Northern New Jersey...
You can commute to Manhatten from here in a matter of minutes, or hours if the traffic on the GW Bridge is backed up.
Ridgewood traces its roots to 1687 when the East Jersey Proprietors granted several hundred acres to Isaac Kingsland. Johannes Van Emburgh bought some of this land in 1698 and his descendants built one of the first houses in the area.
Originally an agricultural community named Godwinville, the name was changed to Ridgewood in 1866 and it was incorporated as the Village of Ridgewood in 1894. After rail service to New York was instituted in 1851, the downtown business district began to develop.
A nice Restaurant with a hopping bar on the back side. There was live disco/latin music when we went, great for dancing! more travel advice
