This suburban borough of approximately 10,100 residents, often referred to as the "gateway to the Pascack Valley and beyond," covers nearly three square miles and offers a small town feel with all of the amenities that one could want, including top notch schools and recreation facilities. Hillsdale has also been ranked one of the safest communities in NJ.

Shopping & Dining

Hillsdale has no shortage of restaurant offerings - from big names like Friendly's and Starbucks to smaller eateries serving local pizza and sushi. There are also two large chain supermarkets available for grocery shopping. And, while a stroll downtown will have you stopping in mom and pop shops, perhaps the most well-loved establishment is Demarest Farms. There they offer apple picking, pumpkin picking, children's activities and fresh produce and baked goods.

Getting Around

New Jersey Transit's Pascack Valley Line offers train service to and from Hoboken, Secaucus & New York to the Hillsdale station, while Rockland Coaches provides bus service directly to Port Authority.


The Hillsdale Public Schools serve students in pre-k through eighth grade with two elementary schools and one middle school. Public school students in ninth through twelfth attend Pascack Valley High School along with students from neighboring River Vale. St. John's Academy is a private Catholic school serving children in pre-k through eighth grade.


With events such as National Night Out, Hillsdale Town Day, Art in the Park and a Summer Concert Series, it's no wonder there's such a feeling of community in Hillsdale.

Parks & Recreation

Hillsdale has several active recreation and club sports programs, as well as a full Summer Day Camp. Beechwood Park, located on Hillsdale Ave., has an amphitheater, playground, picnic area, walking trails and a softball field. Located across the street, Hillsdale Memorial Park also has baseball fields and basketball courts. Stony Brook Swim Club is a popular pool complex located on Cedar Lane that includes an Olympic-size swimming pool, kiddie pool, intermediate pool, water slide, picnic area, basketball court and playground.
