Better Homes in Englewood, New Jersey
Located in the southern part of Bergen County’s Northern Valley region, just north of the great Jersey meadowlands, three miles west of the George Washington Bridge and ten miles from Times Square, Englewood’s 4.9 square miles are home to over 26,000. This proximity to New York City is a significant attraction of Englewood, but it also has a lively and unique character and an electrifying cosmopolitan atmosphere of its own that reflects the heterogeneous backgrounds, interests and talents of its citizens. Englewood’s population is far more diverse than that of most of its Bergen County neighbors. Occupations range from highly paid professionals to unskilled trades.

A Better Home for You and Your Family: Education in Englewood
Education is part of quality living and your Englewood home is at the right place with access to top-notch education facilities. The percentage of the Englewood population with a bachelor’s degree or higher is above state average. Throughout Englewood schools, student to teacher ratio averages 11.8. Because the state has determined that the number of students in the schools exceeds the appropriate size for a “thorough and efficient” education, the Englewood district will undertake major renovations and construction. To create the schools the students and the City deserve, community volunteers work to build the foundation for the “Renaissance” of the Englewood Public Schools where the education of a diverse population results in high achievement for all students.

Outside your Englewood Home: John Harms Center for the Arts
The Bergen Performing Arts Center, Inc. (“bergenPAC”), is an independent nonprofit community organization created to open a new performing arts center at the former site of the John Harms Center in Englewood, New Jersey. The John Harms Center was the third largest (1,400 seats) performing arts center in New Jersey and the largest arts center in Northern New Jersey, touching the lives of more than 300,000 people per year, including 75,000 children who attended performances. It was unquestionably considered one of the leading cultural institutions in New Jersey. The Harms Center closed its doors on April 14, 2003, stunning the performing arts community and creating a public outcry to preserve this special cultural institution. On April 30, 2003, bergenPAC was founded. bergenPAC was born of creativity, envisioning a new public/private partnership that could effectively coordinate and leverage our energies, resources and talents in service of a vision: the re-birth of an even greater performing arts center. The 1,000,000 residents who live and work in the Bergen County area will continue to be treated to a truly unique arts and entertainment experience. More than 350 events held at the Harms Center, which provides an educational, and community resource and a generator of economic vitality, will continue. Prior to the grand opening, scheduled for the fall of 2004, bergenPAC will be opening its doors for special limited engagements and fundraising events.
