#8 Best Places to Retire in New Jersey


Hasbrouck Heights has once again made the Top 10 of places to live in New Jersey. Along with being within the Top 10 of safest neighborhoods in New Jersey, Hasbrouck Heights ranks #8 on the list of Best Places to Retire in New Jersey.

Seated at No. 8 on list is the borough of Hasbrouck Heights. The 11,842 inhabitants of this small place are lucky enough to enjoy a low crime rate that ranks eighth on our list for that category, which means safety and tranquility all year round. Some of that tranquility stems from the fantastic weather they have, which comes in at No. 17 for that ranking. There may be fewer amenities here than some places, but Hasbrouck Heights still manages a respectable 52nd on our list for that criteria and is a fun place to live.

Bargain house hunters will love this little borough, considering that it is home to quite a few amenities for its size, and also has a town-wide garage sale in June, which includes a bake sale and book sale from the local public library.
