Fort Lee

Hollywood of the Hudson
Named after a Revolutionary War military encampment, Fort Lee is also the birthplace of the American film industry, hence the nickname "Hollywood of the Hudson." The term "cliffhanger" originated from an early series filmed in Fort Lee on the New Jersey Palisades, a line of steep cliffs along the Hudson River. This residential suburb is also culturally diverse, as evidenced by its variety of international restaurants, small businesses, and local shops, especially along Main Street. A spectacular New York City skyline, beautiful Fort Lee Park, and biking and running trails also make this area home for many.

The Fort Lee housing market includes pre-war brick apartments, luxury condos, newly-constructed contemporary mid-rises, duplexes, and single-family homes. This lower-priced and more spacious New Jersey borough has a highly-ranked school system as well, ideal for families and young professionals looking for a quiet and pretty lifestyle. Fort Lee is connected to the New York City metropolis by the George Washington Bridge, and transit options to get to and from the city are plentiful.
