New Bridge Landing, signed as New Bridge Landing at River Edge (known as North Hackensack until April 2009), is an NJ Transit rail station on the Pascack Valley Line. The station is located at Kinderkamack Road and Grand Avenue in River Edge, in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States. Along with the River Edge station, it is one of two stations in the borough. With the addition of "at River Edge" to the station's name, NJ Transit now recognizes the station as being in River Edge; when the station was originally called North Hackensack, NJT regarded the station as being in neighboring Hackensack.
