A brief history of Lodi NJ
Lodi owes its name to the Italian city of Lodi, Lombardy. It was incorporated as a borough on December 22, 1894, from portions of the now-defunct municipalities of Lodi Township (now South Hackensack) and Saddle River Township (now Saddle Brook), at the height of Bergen County's "Boroughitis" phenomenon then sweeping through Bergen County, based on the results of a referendum held on the previous day.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough had a total area of 1.703 square miles (4.409 km2), including 1.476 square miles (3.822 km2) of land and 0.227 square miles (0.587 km2) of water (13.31%).
The borough borders the Bergen County municipalities of Hackensack, Moonachie, Ridgefield, Ridgefield Park, South Hackensack and Teterboro.
The borough lies near the confluence of the Hackensack River and Overpeck Creek in the New Jersey Meadowlands.
