Westwood, NJ Overview

The bedroom community of Westwood offers a comfortable home to a significant number of commuters.  Westwood is developed in the areas of industry and commerce.  Nestled in the panoramic Pascack Valley, this community represents a popular choice for newcomers based on affordability of homes, excellent schools, and overall quality of life.  Although growth has definitely made an impact on the region, the preservation of towering trees and large parcels of land has retained a country feeling.  Older, stately homes flank more modest single-family housing for a pleasing selection.  The Garden State Parkway, Routes 17 and 4, bus service to New York City, and train service to Manhattan from Westwood or to Hoboken from Washington ensure efficient transportation.  Recreational amenities include a 126-acre conservation area, playgrounds, athletic fields, league sports, tennis courts, a private swim club, and an indoor ice-skating rink.

Climate and Weather

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
