Covering an area of 6.24 square miles, Teaneck is home to around 40,000 people, making it one of the largest and most densely populated townships in Bergen County in New Jersey. The formation of Teaneck as a modern township happened in 1895 from the portions of Englewood Township and Ridgefield Township under an act of the New Jersey Legislature.
