Properties In This Neighborhood

Welcome to Cresskill

A throwback to classic small-town living, this quiet, upscale commuter community is one you're happy to return to day after day.

One of the smaller boroughs in Bergen County, covering just over two square miles, Cresskill is surrounded by Alpine, Tenafly, Dumont, Demarest, and Bergenfield. Driving through the neighborhood, Cresskill reveals a gorgeous landscape with a luxurious and diverse collection of homes. Starting in Cresskill's western neighborhoods, large estate homes occupy one-acre lots set along winding country roads. To the east, the split-level and Cape-style homes suggest more traditional sensibilities. 

Add in brand new construction and some very well-maintained historical residences dating back from the 1920s to the 1940s, and you have a visually stunning community able to meet any need and or any design sensibility. 

What to Love

  • Exceptional variety of homes, everything from grand French estates to quaint capes to classic colonials.
  • Comfortable, and family-friendly central business district that is also immensely walkable
  • Perfect for commuters with kids—Manhattan is less than a 30-minute drive from Cresskill—who love a close-knit community with great schools

Local Lifestyle

To be sure, head to practically any street in Cresskill, and there's a good chance you'll spot a classic slice of Americana. Whether it's an old Colonial or a meticulously cared-for Cape Cod, two neighbors chatting with each other, or kids playing in a front yard, there is a timeless quality to the community that residents with families absolutely love.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

At the heart of the Cresskill community, where the primary thoroughfare of Piermont Road intersects with Union Avenue and Madison Avenue, you discover several fabulous local eateries and convenient shops and services. 

Though there's a lot of variety within the small four-block area, a few establishments stand out. Jack's Lobster Shack & Oyster Bar promises and delivers the best lobster in New Jersey. 

Neighboring establishments Samdan Restaurant and Moo Moo's Italian Steakhouse serve some of the region's best international fare. The former excels in authentic Turkish cuisine, while the latter seamlessly blends steakhouse flair with rich Italian flavors.

Dante's Pizza will prove your favorite neighborhood pizza joint, while the whimsical CU Latte puts a little bit of fun and fanfare back into your morning java. Cafe RX does the same, but with brunch.

Things to Do

With its small land area and predominantly residential layout, Cresskill doesn't feature the sweeping green spaces of some of its neighbors. It does have several smaller neighborhood parks or community recreational areas. Carlson Park, Cook Field, Brookline Park, and the Cresskill Community Center all provide space for you to stretch your legs, play with your kids, and enjoy the community.


Cresskill is home to a number of excellent schools. Top educational opportunities include:
