Teterboro (/ttɜːrbɜːr/ TEE-tər-bər-o[citation needed]) 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 67,[11][12][13] reflecting an increase of 49 (+272.2%) from the 18 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn declined by 4 (−18.2%) from the 22 counted in the 1990 Census.[23] As of 2010, it is the fourth-smallest municipality, by population, in New Jersey.[24]

Teterboro is the home of Teterboro Airport (operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey) which takes up a majority of the borough, as well as portions of Hasbrouck Heights and Moonachie.[25]

History[edit]

Teterboro was incorporated on March 26, 1917, from land that was originally part of the boroughs of Moonachie, Little Ferry and Lodi Township. The borough was enlarged on July 5, 1918, by the addition of an area annexed from Hasbrouck Heights. The borough was named for Walter C. Teter, a New York investment banker, who had purchased land in 1917 to build a racetrack and developed a 700-acre (280 ha) site, reclaiming marshland and building an airport and an 18-hole golf course.[26][27] The name Teterboro was changed on April 14, 1937, to Bendix Borough, but reverted back to Teterboro Borough on June 1, 1943.[28]

Throughout the borough's history, neighboring municipalities, such as Hasbrouck Heights and South Hackensack, have made repeated attempts to dissolve Teterboro, in hopes of absorbing the town's ratables. Some people have reasoned that the population is too small for the borough to justify its own existence. However, all such attempts have met with failure, due to resistance from residents, business owners and municipal officials. In July 2010, a bill was introduced in the New Jersey state senate in a renewed effort to divide Teterboro among neighboring towns.[29] The bill, sponsored by Senator Robert M. Gordon and Assemblypersons Connie Wagner and Vincent Prieto, stalled in the state Legislature after its introduction, due to opposition from the borough's officials, its residents and business and land owners within the borough, as well as the neighboring municipalities of Moonachie and Hasbrouck Heights.[30] The legality of a 20-year tax abatement proposed by the legislators for Teterboro businesses within the bill, which had been included to alleviate concerns of property owners that taxes could spike if the borough was dissolved, was also called into question.[31]

Geography[edit]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough had a total area of 1.158 square miles (3.000 km2), including 1.157 square miles (2.997 km2) of land and 0.001 square miles (0.003 km2) of water (0.08%).[1][2]

The borough borders Hackensack, Hasbrouck Heights, Little Ferry, Moonachie and South Hackensack.[32]

2010 Census[edit]

As of the 2010 United States Census, there were 67 people, 25 households, and 13 families residing in the borough. The population density was 57.9 per square mile (22.4/km2).

The average household size was 2.68 and the average family size was 3.85.[11]

In the borough, the population was spread out with 23.9% under the age of 18, 6.0% from 18 to 24, 23.9% from 25 to 44, 32.8% from 45 to 64, and 13.4% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 43.5 years. For every 100 females there were 86.1 males. For every 100 females ages 18 and older there were 96.2 males.[11]

The Census Bureau's 2006–2010 American Community Survey showed that (in 2010 inflation-adjusted dollars) median household income was $78,571 (with a margin of error of +/- $31,104) and the median family income was $79,107 (+/- $46,857). Males had a median income of $72,031 (+/- $9,149) versus $24,286 (+/- $75,310) for females. The per capita income for the borough was $32,446 (+/- $14,230). About 0.0% of families and 13.4% of the population were below the poverty line, including 0.0% of those under age 18 and 100.0% of those age 65 or over.[41]

Same-sex couples headed no households in either 2010 or 2000.[42]

2000 Census[edit]

As of the 2000 United States Census[20] there were 18 people, 7 households, and 4 families residing in the borough. The population density was 16.2 people per square mile (6.3/km2). There were 8 housing units at an average density of 7.2 per square mile (2.8/km2). The racial makeup of the borough was 83.33% White, and 16.67% from two or more races.[39][40]

There were 7 households out of which 42.9% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 42.9% were married couples living together, 28.6% had a female householder with no husband present, and 28.6% were non-families. 14.3% of all households were made up of individuals and 14.3% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.57 and the average family size was 3.00.[39][40]

In the borough the population was spread out with 33.3% under the age of 18, 5.6% from 18 to 24, 50.0% from 25 to 44, 5.6% from 45 to 64, and 5.6% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 33 years. For every 100 females, there were 100.0 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 100.0 males.[39][40]

The median income for a household in the borough was $44,167, and the median income for a family was $43,750. Males had a median income of $18,750 versus $38,750 for females. The per capita income for the borough was $72,613. None of the population or families were below the poverty line.[39][40]

Borough officials stated that the 2000 Census had failed to count any of the residents of the Vincent Place housing units who had moved into the newly built homes in 1999.[43] The uncounted residents, including the Mayor and all four Council members, would help account for a projected tripling of the population enumerated by the census.[44] Previously, the Mayor and Council, as well as several other Vincent Place residents, had all been residents of Huyler Street, the only other street zoned as a residential area in the borough. In a March 2010 article, published in The Record, Teterboro's municipal manager at the time noted that the actual population of the town had grown to approximately 60.[45]

Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Teterboro is governed under the 1923 Municipal Manager Law form of New Jersey municipal government. The government consists of a Borough Council comprising five council members, with all positions elected at-large in partisan elections to four-year terms on a concurrent basis.[9] At a reorganization meeting held in July after each election, the Council members provide nominations from within itself before electing one of its members to serve as mayor.[3]

As of November 2017, Teterboro's Borough Council consists of Mayor John P. Watt, Juan Ramirez, Gregory Stein, John B. Watt and Christie Emden, all serving concurrent terms of office ending June 30, 2018.[3][6][46] Emden's seat was previously held by Councilman James O'Dwyer until his death on February 9, 2017.[47] For several months after O'Dwyer's death, the council continued operating with its remaining four members. In the November 2017 general election, Christie Emden received 10 of the 13 votes cast to become the borough's newest council member, serving the balance of O'Dwyer's unexpired term.[48]

Starting in January 2016, the Moonachie Police Department assumed responsibility for all law enforcement services, which are provided under contract. From 2012 through 2015, Moonachie had patrolled the southern portion of the borough, while the northern portion was covered by the Bergen County Police Department.[49]
