Real Estate in Teaneck, NJ 07666

The seventh largest and second most populous municipality in Bergen County, Teaneck occupies a position at the crossroads of geography that has made it the site of many historical events. Settled by Dutch colonists in the 17th century, Teaneck was traversed by George Washington during the Revolutionary War, and in 1965 it became the first white-majority community to voluntary integrate its public schools. Today, while retaining some of the oldest homes in the United States, Teaneck offers a unique and evolving blend of cultures and languages, with large Jewish and African-American communities, and growing numbers of Hispanic and Asian residents.
