A brief history of Hasbrouck Heights
Hasbrouck Heights is located approximately 10 miles (16 km) northwest of Midtown Manhattan and 8 miles (13 km) west of Upper Manhattan. The area that would become the borough had been known as Corona from the mid-1800s and grew up around the two local railroad stations. The name "Hasbrouck" was chosen in 1889 to honor J. Dillon Hasbrouck, general manager of the New Jersey and New York Railroad. In the face of local opposition, the name change was promoted as improving the community's public perception and avoiding confusion with the Corona, Queens neighborhood, while "Heights" was added to avoid confusion with a similarly named community in upstate New York.
Hasbrouck Heights was formed by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on August 2, 1894, based on the passage of a referendum on July 31, 1894, and was created from portions of Lodi Township at the height of the "Boroughitis" phenomenon then sweeping through Bergen County. A part of the borough was annexed to Lodi in 1901.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough had a total area of 1.510 square miles (3.910 km2), including 1.506 square miles (3.899 km2) of land and 0.004 square miles (0.010 km2) of water (0.26%) was water. The borough borders Hackensack, Lodi, Moonachie, Teterboro and Wood-Ridge

Hasbrouck Heights Restaurants
The Stony Hill Inn possesses a rich history dating back to 1694, when the land for this estate was conveyed to Hendrick Hopper. In 1818, his grandson John I. Hopper chose a site on high ground commanding an unobstructed panorama of the countryside and, together with his wife Maria, built the house that stands today as home to one of the finest restaurants Bergen County NJ has to offer. The result of our unique history is a dining experience in the quiet elegance of a bygone era and the ambiance of one of the best restaurants in Bergen County New Jersey.
