Demarest

Welcome to Demarest

Despite being just 10 miles from midtown Manhattan, Demarest (5,000 pop.) has a decidedly small-town feel that continues to draw new residents. The borough offers beautifully tree-lined streets, few traffic lights and a pleasant lack of big business and box stores across its 2.5 square miles. Schools are among the top draw to Demarest, with its district consistently ranking within the top 1% of New Jersey schools.
