Franklin Lakes Borough

Franklin Lakes Borough Hall is located at 480 DeKorte Drive, Franklin Lakes, NJ 07417; phone: 201-891-0048.

The borough was formed in 1922 from part of Franklin Township.

The Borough of Franklin Lakes [1] is a nearly ten-square mile suburban municipality located at the outer edge of New Jersey's most populous county. Like many other communities in Bergen County, Franklin Lakes benefits from its proximity to New York City, yet its separation from more urbanized areas contributes to its distinct character. It is a municipality typified by suburban homes, a modest downtown, some corporate offices and limited commercial areas, as well as a number of lakes, ponds, parks, recreation facilities, and open spaces. Franklin Lakes is also traversed by two major highways (Interstate Route 287 and New Jersey Route 208) and a freight railroad, which may one day see the restoration of passenger service.
