Eighteen miles northwest of New York City is Glen Rock, N.J. a Bergen County community where children still ride their bicycles home from school for lunch. Watching them pedal along the borough's tree lined sidewalks is like seeing a Norman Rockwell painting come to life. Residents say community spirit and concern for children are the key features of life in the borough.
Glen Rock has a long history of concern for it's children. Until 1894, the children from towns in the area attended a one room schoolhouse on Ackerman Avenue and Rock Road in Glen Rock (now a private home). As enrollment grew, school officials proposed building a new school closer to the center of the unincorporated township of Ridgewood.
The Dutch-American vegetable farmers Glen Rock - which at the time had fewer than 100 homes and 600 residents - thought that would be too long a walk for their children. They decided to have a school of their own built and seceded from Ridgewood. Today Glen Rock has three public elementary schools and a combined junior/senior high school, plus St. Catherines Roman Catholic elementary school.
Glen Rock has a very attractive library which contains more than 82,000 volumes. There are six houses of worship, 3 protestant, a Catholic Church, a synagogue and a Sikh temple.
Within walking distance of most homes is Rock Road, where small stores serve most of the resident's daily shopping needs. Paramus' many shopping centers are nearby. Nestled among the Glen Rock shops is the Glen Rock Inn, a restaurant that holds one of the borough's liquor licenses.
Glen Rock is a place where a family, couple or single person can move and establish roots.
