Maywood Station Museum

Reviewed By pdclarry - NYC Area

There was once passenger train service from the 125th street Manhattan ferry terminal in Edgewater, but that was 60 years ago. What is left is the station in Maywood, which was a resort town in the 1800's and now a bedroom community near NYC. Alas, the railroad is now only freight, but a team of railroad enthusiasts took over the station a few years ago and restored it. Inside is a collection of memorabilia from a bygone era, outside a lovingly restored caboose with an n-gauge layout inside, and a diesel engine in the process of being restored. The museum is open only one Sunday afternoon a month, so check before coming.

Bergen County Players, Inc.

Reviewed By SincerelyI - Montvale, New Jersey

Every play they do is terrific. You wouldn't know that these are not seasoned Broadway performers. The theater is small so you are assured a good view and the best of hearing. Rupert Holmes who Wrote Escape - the Pina Colada song premiered his play Thumbs, the most successful play in the history of the Helen Hayes Theatre Company, here first. We sat with him over coffee. All the players are accesible and there is even a snack and drink bar downstairs.

Reviewed By wolfman2014 - Brooklyn, New York

After not going to a theater for many many years, we went here to see a small independent film. Tickets during the day were just $5 each and that cannot be beat. The theater itself was a bit small, but seats were comfy and floor was clean. Street parking in the area is available, although I am sure it may get tough on the weekends.

Historic New Bridge Landing

Reviewed By robcurtross - New York City, New York

Bergen County saw action in every single year of the Revolution, and the Steuben House is said to have seen more of the war than any other house in America. It is very moving to stand on the banks of the Hackensack River and remember how hotly contested this place was for so long.

There are good interpretive signs, special events of interest and a large historical museum focused on Bergen County. Check the website and time your visit to the park to coincide with an event of personal interest. Incidentally, the walking tour app for the park is excellent, and the library, when open, contains a number of excellent books related to Bergen County.

Saddle River County Park

Reviewed By Lady G

Took my 6 and 9 year old here. The bike trail is 6 miles long, and is really fun. Lots of interesting bridges to cross and tunnels to bike thru. The scene was beautiful. Lots of tree coverage make the heat very bearable. There's lots of places to stop and rest and playgrounds in case the kids want a change. The trail has lot of variations that make the ride very interesting. We're already looking forward to going back.

Johnson Free Public Library

Reviewed By duck8to - Montville, New Jersey

Yes, they have access to government databases like the Congressional Record, Federal Register, Public Laws etc.. I also like their periodical department which contains a large selection of over 170 selections some of which can not be found in nearby libraries. As a student I often had occasion to use their Academic Search Premiere Online Database A-Z which featured "Eric". The interior features a large central area with tables with lots of outlets which allow free WiFi access. The exterior architecture on the Main Street facing is unique and memorable. Parking however is awkward. It's metered parking on Main street. Metered parking on Camden street between Main and State street and 2 hour free parking on Berry street between Main and State street. All meters feed from 9am - 6pm. They have a large Spanish Language audio book collection.
