Introduction to Waldwick, New Jersey

Waldwick, New Jersey is 6 miles NE of Paterson, New Jersey (center to center) and 19 miles N of Newark, New Jersey. It is located in Bergen County.

Waldwick History

The area now known as Waldwick was formerly inhabited by the Lenni-Lenape tribe of Native Americans. The Dutch took control in 1624, following the establishment of the Nieuw Amsterdam colony. Immigration was triggered by the annexation of Nieuw Amsterdam by the English in 1664. Another population boom occurred after the Erie Railroad established a stop in the region in the late 19th century. The community was officially incorporated on April 7th, 1919. The word "Waldwick" means "a place in the woods."
