Ramsey is a borough in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States. It is a suburb of New York City, located 26 miles (42 km) northwest of Midtown Manhattan. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 14,473, reflecting an increase of 122 (+0.9%) from the 14,351 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 1,123 (+8.5%) from the 13,228 counted in the 1990 Census.
Ramsey was incorporated as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 10, 1908, from portions of Hohokus Township (whose remnants are now Mahwah Township). Additional territory was annexed from Waldwick in 1921, and portions of the borough were ceded to Saddle River in 1925.
The most noteworthy local historical site is the Old Stone House, which is, as its name describes, both old and constructed of stone, though its construction materials in the early 1700s also included hog's hair. It was originally a Dutch farmhouse and served as a tavern during the Revolutionary War. Legend has it that Aaron Burr slaked his thirst at this site, on his way to courting the woman who would become his wife in Ho-Ho-Kus. The structure opened as a historic site in 1960 with a riveting display of old pitchers.
Ramsey is named after Peter J. Ramsey, a 19th-century landowner who died circa 1854, who had sold the land that became the site of a railroad station called "Ramsey's" in 1848.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough had a total area of 5.591 square miles (14.480 km2), including 5.520 square miles (14.297 km2) of land and 0.071 square miles (0.183 km2) of water (1.26%).
The borough is bordered by the Bergen County municipalities of Saddle River and Upper Saddle River on the east, Allendale on the southeast, and Mahwah on the north, west, and southwest.
As of the 2010 United States Census, there were 14,473 people, 5,363 households, and 3,925.716 families living in the borough. The population density was 2,621.9 per square mile (1,012.3/km2).
