Little Falls, NJ Neighborhood Information

Neighborhood Facts

Town History

The northern New Jersey community of Little Falls, named for the Passaic River waterfalls that spill directly in front of The Mill, can trace its heritage back 270 years. Its 2.8 Square miles, now home to a population of about 12,500, are bounded by the communities of Montclair, Wayne, Cedar Grove, West Paterson, Totowa, North Caldwell and Fairfield and Clifton.

The old Morris Canal, once an important artery of trade and transportation between the Delaware and Hudson Rivers, wound its way through the town, and vestiges of it still serve as a reminder of Little Falls' long history. Several well-maintained residences and other structures from the last century serve to further strengthen the town's sense of pride in it's past.

During most of the years of its existence, the Beattie carpet mill was the town's major employer. The quarrying of brownstone was another important local industry, and Little Falls brownstone has been utilized in many significant structures including New York's famous Trinity Church. Commercial activity is now comprised mainly of light industrial and office-based companies; there is some heavy industry. The many residents who commute elsewhere to work are among the best served in the metropolitan area, with frequent rail and bus service, as well as close proximity to key state and interstate highways.

Little Falls has matured gracefully and today offers long term residents and newcomers alike the quality of life that makes suburban New Jersey a desirable address for home, career and recreation.
