“Demarest attracts individuals desiring to leave the hustle and bustle of city life
yet wanting to remain within a comfortable commuting distance of New York City."

The Small-Town Charm of Demarest, New Jersey

Located only ten miles from midtown Manhattan, the town of Demarest, New Jersey is nestled in a small, charming borough in Bergen County. With no large manufacturing industries, streets shaded by tall, leafy trees, minimal traffic lights and just a few apartments, Demarest attracts individuals desiring to leave the hustle and bustle of city life yet wanting to remain within a comfortable commuting distance of New York City.

According to its official website Demarest's population, as recorded by the 2010 United State census, currently sits at approximately 4900 residents. Household median income is about $105,000, with an average family income sitting at $115,000.

What's in Demarest, New Jersey?
With 1800 homes, three churches, six schools and a lovely river called "Duck Pond" by long-time residents, Demarest presents itself as a safe and warm-hearted community embracing such diverse ethnicities as Native Americans, Asians, Hispanics and Pacific Islanders. The town also has a volunteer fire department, a volunteer ambulance squad and a public library. Established on Duck Pond, the Peace Site Gazebo represents the efforts of ecumenical Demarest citizens who encourage peace and human concerns for their community as well as the world.

Most commuters use Rockland Coaches to get to the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhatten as well as the Palisades Center located in West Nyack, New York. West Nyack is where many residents choose to shop on the weekends. Until about 50 years ago, Demarest had a railroad depot but it has not been restored and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
