BERGENFIELD, N.J. -- Bloomberg Businessweek has named Bergenfield the No. 2 best place in New Jersey to raise a family.
In a recent article titled "Family-friendly and Affordable," the borough was near the top of places in New Jersey to raise children.
Using 2010 data from Onboard Informatics, a real estate information and technology company in New York, Bloomberg Businessweek evaluated a total of 5,418 locations nationwide with populations larger than the state median but no larger than 50,000. The article considered only locations where the median income is within 20 percent of the state's median. The rankings put the most weight on school performance, the number of schools, crime statistics and cost of living.
Other factors included job growth, air quality, ethnic diversity and access to recreational amenities within the county, such as parks, zoos, theaters and museums.
