One of the two villages in Bergen County is earning accolades in the "New York Times."
"The trappings of small-town life are evident in working-class Ridgefield Park , one of four official villages in New Jersey," the article writes.
"Front porches and fluttering flags abound on cozy, tree-canopied streets, many one-way.
"The elaborate Fourth of July parade, first staged in 1894, is the state’s oldest.

Ridgefield Park is home to many notable people including Ozzie Nelson, NFL's Hatch Rosdahl, novelist Yoojin Grace Wuertz and more.
