sun, let alone summer. July is the time of year when the kids are out of school (look for our Kids and Pets issue next month) and there is no shortage of adventures. For many, summer evokes fond memories of childhood: sleepaway camp, family vacations and swimming until your fingers shriveled up like prunes. We also celebrate our nation’s independence, host parties for friends and family, and, if we’re lucky, take a trip to that destination we’ve longed to explore.

For those who are unfamiliar with one of the area’s extremely special programs, Camp Sunshine is now celebrating its 59th summer. Located at the Duck Pond in Ridgewood, the camp is a summer recreational program for children and young adults with multiple disabilities. For those of you who love to bike, check out Pedal Sports in Oakland where the staff provides you with unparalleled service along with sales of the latest and greatest, including custom-designed bikes. I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. If you’re not familiar with Van Dyk’s, Ernie’s or Rita’s, you are in for a real treat. Your July plans should include a visit to all of these specialty ice cream shops. There is certainly no shortage of history right here in our backyard. Read about the Bishop House, the Schoolhouse Museum and the Hopper-Goetschius Museum. Take a part of your day and do something different; it’s just a short ride to see some great hometown history.

WHO: Van Dyk’s Ice Cream WHERE: Ridgewood ADDRESS: 145 Ackerman Ave., Ridgewood WHAT TO ORDER: With more than two dozen flavors made fresh on-site, mint chocolate chip is a favorite, and cookies and cream is always a popular choice as well. New in the last few years (and a big hit) is the Salted Caramel Truffle. In the summer,  they add flavors like blueberry, peach and cantaloupe, using fresh fruit. Come back in the fall for offerings like apple and pumpkin pie and cinnamon caramel. Open March through November.

WHO: Ernie’s Ice Cream WHERE: Mahwah ADDRESS: 78 Franklin Turnpike, Mahwah WHAT TO ORDER: If it’s soft-serve ice cream you’re craving, Ernie’s has more than 30 flavors to chose from. The Dole Pineapple Whip, new this year and made popular at Disney World, is dairy-, gluten- and fat-free and packed with flavor. Other can’t-miss options include toasted coconut;  s’mores;  and Unicorn Delight, a purple and white soft serve with sprinkles and very popular with young customers. The  ice cream pies are also amazing. Open April through October.

WHO: Rita’s Italian Ice & Frozen Custard WHERE: Glen Rock and Mahwah ADDRESS: 1020 S. Maple Ave., Glen Rock, and  3 Miller Road, Mahwah WHAT TO ORDER: Rita’s has frozen choices galore with more than 35 flavors of Italian ices to choose from—cotton candy, Georgia peach or  Swedish Fish, anyone?—along with gelati, a dollop of creamy frozen custard on top of an Italian ice. Or try a Blendini, Italian ice blended with frozen custard and mixed with a favorite topping like Reese’s Mini Pieces, Oreo Cookie Pieces or Nilla Wafers. On your way out, grab a cookie sandwich or a frozen custard cake.

NORTHWEST BERGEN COUNTY IS RICH IN HISTORY, FROM GEORGE WASHINGTON’S VISIT TO THE HERMITAGE IN HO-HOKUS IN 1778 TO HOMES AMONG US BUILT IN THE EARLY 18TH AND 19TH CENTURIES THAT STILL STAND TODAY. Take a drive through many of our towns, and you’ll see historical landmarks sprinkled throughout, teaching us about our area’s important place in the history of our state and our country. Here are a few places to start, each chock-full of their own stories.

SCHOOLHOUSE MUSEUM 650 E. Glen Ave., Ridgewood The Schoolhouse Museum, built in 1873, operated as a public school until 1905 as part of the district school system  formed in 1864. Built at a cost of $4,600, it was for girls and boys in first through eighth grade. The  windows, a potbelly stove and two central lamps are original to the building. A large bell, which was once used to call children to school each day, was used in other schools after 1905 and returned to its original home in 1977. The Schoolhouse is on the National Register of Historic Places, along with the bordering Old Paramus Church and is maintained by the Ridgewood Historical Society where exhibits are on display. RidgewoodHistoricalSociety.org CONTINUED >

WHERE HISTORY LIVES:

(CON TI N U ED)

BISHOP HOUSE 176 E. Saddle River Road, Saddle River The Bishop House was built in 1835 by one of Bergen County’s oldest families, the Ackermans. An addition was added in 1870 by James Dewsnap and renovated by the Bishops following World War ll. The Bishop House was purchased by the Borough of Saddle River in 1980 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986. The Borough is currently collaborating with Ho-HoKus-based Morpurgo Architects to restore the original intent of the house as Saddle River’s Community and Cultural Center. This significant historical building will be used for social functions, cultural events and as home to many clubs and organizations. SaddleRiver.org

HOPPER-GOETSCHIUS MUSEUM 363 E. Saddle River Road, Upper Saddle River The oldest remaining house in Upper Saddle River, the Hopper-Goetschius house was believed to be built in 1739. The Hoppers farmed their land, which extended from the Saddle River at Lions Park almost to Montvale and up the East Road. The Rev. Stephen Goetschius of the Old Stone Church purchased the home, and it remained in the family for a century and a half. The Reverend’s grandson, also Stephen, served as the borough clerk for more than 40 years. In 1985, the home was given to the Borough of Upper Saddle River by the family and serves today as a museum run by the Upper Saddle River Historical Society, offering events to the public throughout the year. USRHistoricalSociety.org 24

Factor One: TAKING AERO BIKES TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Northwest Bergen Lifestyle | July 2019


WHEN IT COMES TO BICYCLES, PEDAL SPORTS IN OAKLAND HAS IT ALL. Need a kid’s first two-wheeler, a mountain bike  or a beach cruiser? See owner Rob Rybacki. And if your dream is customizing your own road racing bike, he can help with that too. Rob recommends Factor ONE, designed as a super fast and light road bike custom-designed and fitted for each individual rider. “It comes at a premium price but it’s an awesome bike,” he says. “With Factor, you start by buying just the basics like the frame, the fork, the seat post, the handlebars and the headset. The rest, including wheels, the seat, pedals, we order individually according to what you want, then build your bike exactly the way you want it.” Factor, manufacturer of carbon fiber road bikes which have won many of the world’s most famous road races, uses aerodynamic principles for speed and efficiency, delivering an exhilarating ride. “Many new aero road bikes have been introduced in the past few years, and while they may be fast in the wind tunnel, they are not a pleasure to ride,” says Factor owner Rob Gitelis. “With Factor ONE, we have focused not only on speed but comfort and bike fit as well.” Who buys them? “While we sell these bikes primarily to cycling team members or racers, we also see regular bike enthusiasts who only want the best buying them too,” Pedal Sports owner Rob Rybacki says.
