North Arlington

The borough of North Arlington is located within the southern region of Bergen County in New York.

The Passaic River forms the western border just past River Road. Its neighboring communities are Lyndhurst to the north, Arlington to the south, and Belleville to the west.


The town was part of the New Barbadoes Neck, the colonial period name for the peninsula formed by the Hackensack River and the Passaic River. It was incorporated into a borough in 1896 by an act of the New Jersey Legislature. The town was the site for the assembly of the first steam engine, the Newcomen steam engine, in 1755. Josiah Hornblower assembled the engine for John Schuyler to use to pump water out of the copper mine. The area was the home of the first copper mine in America, the Schuyler Copper Mine.
