New Bridge Landing Station at River Edge (known as North Hackensack until April 2009) is a New Jersey Transit rail station on the Pascack Valley Line. The station is located in River Edge, New Jersey and is located at Kinderkamack Road and Grand Avenue. It is one of two stations in the town; the River Edge station is also located in River Edge. With the addition of "at River Edge" to the station's name, New Jersey 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. The station was built in 1870, as part of the northern extension of the New Jersey and New York Railroad from Hackensack's station at Essex Street. The station depot was demolished in 1978 and replaced by a shelter.
The station is named for the nearby tide mill hamlet New Bridge Landing, where George Washington and Thomas Paine crossed the narrows of the Hackensack River in his retreat after the loss of Fort Washington during the New York and New Jersey campaign in 1776.
