Alpine, New Jersey – The Place to Be for Hip-Hop Artists

Alpine, New Jersey, one of the nation's most costly places to live, has always been involved with the music industry, beginning in 1937 when Frank Sinatra sang at the Rustic Cabin roadhouse, where he moonlighted as a headwaiter as well. Today, Alpine's population of nearly 2200 includes some of the greats in the hip-hop industry, dropping names like Sean Combs, Jay-Z, Lil Kim and even stars like Chris Rock and Stevie Wonder. Nearby Bergen County towns also boast such big names as Ja Rule, Reverend Run and Wyclef Jean.

The benefits of living in Alpine, New Jersey are numerous: small police force due to extremely reduced criminal activity; low taxes;, clean, tree-lined neighborhoods and only one public school that averages 140 students at any given time. Hip-hop artists say that this quiet, restful atmosphere away from the clubs, paparazzi and superficial glitz of places like New York City or Los Angeles is conducive to the creative process. In fact, many of them prefer to record in mansions owned by record producers who also live in Alpine.

Celebrities also prefer living in Alpine due to the privacy afforded them, in addition to the lack of high tax rates because the city doesn't have to pay for mail delivery or an extensive system of schools. The attractiveness of the mansions and large homes situated on several acres also add to the allure of residing in such an exquisite, secluded borough as Alpine.

For example, one stucco style mansion currently on the market features 7500 square feet comprised of several bedroom suites, elegant reception rooms, a fully-equipped kitchen ready for a professional gourmet chef and nearly two acres providing a tennis court, cabana, in-ground swimming pool and putting green. All Alpine homes have central heating and cooling systems, with many offering the rich beauty of hardwood floors throughout the home.

In addition, people with high-profile lifestyles prefer this privileged community due to the privacy of the borough. Alpine does not provide street numbers for homes and the town is virtually concealed within the Palisades, effectively preventing the curious from invading the hamlet. Even those who are not famous but can afford to live in Alpine do so because of the crime-free, sedate and soothing nature of the town. If you are searching for the perfect residence in one of the most prodigious neighborhoods in the U.S., let Orly Chen be your guide in purchasing your dream home located in Bergen County, New Jersey.
