A little Ridgewood history for you…
Prior to the 1800’s, the area we now call Ridgewood was simply bucolic farmland, pastures, wilderness and streams. Generally, the early settlers farmed the land and raised livestock in the area. In addition, small grist and saw mills ran along the streams.
All of a sudden in the mid 1800’s, the area began to grow and develop at a rapid pace. In 1848, the opening of the Paterson and Ramapo railroad which ran through Ridgewood brought major change to the area. As a result of the railroad, Ridgewood started to become a popular destination because of its fresh air, open spaces and natural beauty.
Coupled with the beautiful setting and convenient access to New York City, Ridgewood was a very attractive place for wealthy businessmen and their families to purchase property. Soon, the area developed as a bustling get-away for wealthy city dwellers, and eventually grew into the Ridgewood we know today. Consequently, the village is very picturesque with its tree lined streets, welcoming public spaces and beautiful homes. Also, the many iconic buildings in the downtown area add to the town’s charming historic aesthetic.
It’s all about community
In essence, Ridgewood was designed and developed to encouraged neighborly connections. For example, the village plan included sidewalks on most streets for easy access to the schools and outdoor recreation spaces. In addition, the centrally located downtown and train station are convenient to all the neighborhoods.
The friendly, caring neighborly vibe in Ridgewood contributes to a true sense of camaraderie among residents and visitors alike. In conclusion, the feeling of community in Ridgewood is truly contagious (in a very good way, of course)!
