Ridgewood is almost a six square mile village in northeastern Bergen County, fifteen miles from New York City. It was originally the home of the Lenni-Lenape Indians; Dutch settlers followed.  When the Paterson and Ramapo Railroad laid tracks and established a station, wealthy New Yorkers looking for summer recreation built estates in the area, and eventually became year-round residents. Today, Ridgewood has a population of over twenty four thousand, a thriving business district, hospital, excellent recreation facilities and arts programs, mass transit connections, and a nationally recognized school system.
