      I moved to Paramus, NJ 10 years ago, and I love it! It literally has everything going for it. Employment opportunities in the area are strong. Many of the largest companies are nearby, including Nabisco, Mercedes-Benz, Sharp, Sony, and many more. Paramus is only minutes from New York City and upstate New York. The public school system is excellent, and there are several private schools here as well. Beautiful homes abound in the best areas in Paramus.

      There is always something to do in Paramus! The shopping malls are incredible! All of my favorite department stores are here. There are two multiplex cinemas, the Paramus Golf Course, coffee shops, electronic stores, home goods stores, and more. I love that there is no sales tax on clothing in Paramus! There are several hundred places to eat in Paramus. The restaurants and bars are open late. It's easy to catch a game, listen to some music, and enjoy a late night dinner or cocktail!
