About East Rutherford, NJ Real Estate Market

East Rutherford is a small inner-ring suburb of New York City, located in the Bergen County of New Jersey state. With around 10,000 people residing in the town, East Rutherford is situated 7 miles west of Midtown Manhattan.

The borough's formation had started in 1889 when a portion of the old Union Township was taken from the Boiling Springs Township, which was then renamed East Rutherford during the Boroughitis phenomenon, which took place in the Bergen County in 1894. With the formation of East Rutherford, the Boiling Springs Township has dissolved altogether.

While East Rutherford has New Jersey real estate of all forms, ranging from usual to luxury homes, the town is home to several sports teams and stadiums for them. The biggest sports arena in East Rutherford is Meadowlands Sports Complex, which includes Meadowlands Arena and MetLife Stadium. East Rutherford is the smallest town in the USA to host a Super Bowl event. East Rutherford is home to five professional sports teams, despite having a population of just 10,000 residents. Apart from major sports complexes, East Rutherford is also home to the American Dream, one of the largest shopping centres and entertainment complexes in New Jersey real estate.
