Hillsdale Real Estate & Homes
Hillsdale is a borough in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States.The populated area today known as Hillsdale took form in the mid-to-late 19th century as land speculators, led by David P. Patterson, developed subdivisions to profit from the coming of the Hackensack and New York Railroad (later New Jersey and New York Railroad). The area was incorporated as Hillsdale Township on March 25, 1898, from portions of Washington Township, which had, in turn, been set off from Harrington Township in 1840. Portions of the township were taken on April 30, 1906, to create the township of River Vale. Hillsdale was reincorporated as a borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 2, 1923, based on the results of a referendum held on April 24, 1923.
Hillsdale is served by New Jersey Transit at the Hillsdale train station, located at Broadway and Hillsdale Avenue, offering service on the Pascack Valley Line, a single-track line with passing sidings providing service to and from Hoboken Terminal with connections via the Secaucus Junction transfer station to New Jersey Transit one-stop service to New York Penn Station and to other NJ Transit rail service.
