Edgewater, NJ: A Pristine Waterfront Community

Edgewater is a small but thriving borough located along the Hudson Waterfront north of Guttenberg and North Bergen. Though it’s barely two and half square miles, Edgewater boasts nearly four miles of undisturbed waterfront views and offers a wealth of high-rise condos and apartments overlooking the Hudson and Manhattan to the east. On its western side, Palisades Cliff rises dramatically in the background and features plenty of exciting recreational opportunities.

Edgewater may have a population of just 13,364 residents, but it's growing in popularity due to its ideal location near New York City, as well as Hudson County's other top areas. And if you're ready to make a move to this one-of-a-kind town, we'd love to show you everything it has to offer.
