River Rd / Churchill Rd is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in North Bergen, New Jersey.

River Rd / Churchill Rd real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income
