Paramus

Paramus (/pəˈræməs/ pə-ram-əs, with the accent on the second syllable[20]) is a borough in Bergen County, in the U.S. state of New Jersey. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 26,342,[9][10][11] reflecting an increase of 605 (+2.4%) from the 25,737 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 670 (+2.7%) from the 25,067 counted in the 1990 Census.[21] A suburb of New York City, Paramus is located 15 to 20 miles (24 to 32 km) northwest of Midtown Manhattan and approximately 8 miles (13 km) west of Upper Manhattan. In 2013, it was named as a "New Jersey Healthy Town" under the state's Mayor's Wellness Campaign.[22]

Paramus was incorporated as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 2, 1922, and ratified by a referendum held on April 4, 1922, that passed by a vote of 238 to 10.[23][24] Paramus was created from portions of Midland Township, which now exists as Rochelle Park.[23][25] The name is usually said to be of Native American origin, derived from words meaning "land of the turkey"[20] or meaning "pleasant stream."[26]

The borough is one of the largest shopping destinations in the country, generating over $5 billion in annual retail sales,[27][28] more than any other ZIP code in the United States.[29][30] Paramus has some of the most restrictive blue laws in the nation, banning nearly all white-collar and retail businesses from opening on Sundays except for gas stations, restaurants and grocery stores, and a limited number of other businesses.[31] More than 63% of Bergen County voters rejected a referendum on the ballot in 1993 that would have repealed the county's blue laws, though the Paramus restrictions would have remained in place.[32]

New Jersey Monthly magazine ranked Paramus as its 21st best place to live in its 2013 rankings of the "Best Places To Live" in New Jersey.[33] According to a recent NerdWallet survey, the sixth-best place to start a business in New Jersey is Paramus[34] as well as being the ninth-best place for home ownership in the state.[35] Paramus ranked in the top 20 places with populations over 25,000 in the U.S. by median household income as reported by CNNMoney.[36]
