The borough of Fair Lawn is located about 20 miles northwest of midtown Manhattan. It was named after the estate built in 1865 by David Acker, a prosperous New York merchant, which he named “Fair Lawn.” Today, the former estate is now the site of the Fair Lawn public library. Until its development as a bedroom community, the land on which Fair Lawn sits had been farms of Dutch settlers and their descendants. Radburn, one of the first planned communities in the United States, is an unincorporated community located within Fair Lawn.
