With Englewood, New Jersey being just across the river from New York City many people would assume that it is a mini NYC. That is far from the truth.
Englewood has a unique history and has always had a unique rhythm, from the “original people”, the Lenni Lenepe tribe, to the British. Who in 1664, renamed the land on the western side of the Hudson River “Province of New Jersey”. The original settlers of Hackensack Valley were divided between Patriots and Tories during the Revolutionary War. If the British had succeeded, the Englewood area would have been the site of the demise of the Revolution. Englewood’s former names, English Neighborhood and Liberty Pole reflect the progression of American history.
The coming of the railroad helped to established Englewood in August of 1859. As Englewood grew merchants, artisans and small businessmen formed a commercial center. This commercial center is the heartbeat of Englewood – then and now.
Englewood’s Chamber of Commerce developed a website called englewoodstyle.com that showcases the downtown area businesses and events that surround the Bergen Performing Arts Center. People from all over the world come to Englewood, New Jersey to perform, to open businesses, and to live. Talk to these people and they will tell you they love the beat and rhythm of Englewood.
