Ho-Ho-Kus is unique and special. With access to the 3 metropolitan airports, is dissected by route 17, has direct train & bus service to NYC, is a few minutes from the NY State Thruway, and has the Garden State Parkway in its backyard. However, the prime location and the transportation conveniences do not diminish or interfere with the serene, halcyon atmosphere evident throughout the town. It is residential in nature, has no major industries, but does have a number professional offices, attractive stores, & businesses. Its development began as a community in the 1700’s when homes were built and farms were cultivated. As time progressed, and by 1725, one could find the existence of a church formed under the name “low Dutch Reformed Church” and due to the insistence of the sturdy Dutch influence, a school was started as well. – See more
