At Home In Palisades Park
By JENNIFER PINTO; Special to Open House

Situated in a desirable location near major highways and New York City, the borough of Palisades Park offers its residents commuting conveniences to employment, shopping and dining. Routes 46 and 9 run through town, and Interstate 95 and the New Jersey Turnpike are a short distance to the north and west.

Times Square is about 12 miles away, while the New York side of the George Washington Bridge is less than four miles. NJ Transit buses offer public transportation into New York for residents who prefer that option.

A variety of housing styles allows potential buyers to choose the best situation for their needs - whether it be single-family, multi-family or condominium dwellings. And a range of prices assures that home seekers can find a place that fits within their budgets.
