Englewood is a city located in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the city had a total population of 27,147, reflecting an increase of 944 (+3.6%) from the 26,203 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 1,353 (+5.4%) from the 24,850 counted in the 1990 Census.
Englewood was incorporated as a city by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 17, 1899, from portions of Ridgefield Township and the remaining portions of Englewood Township. With the creation of the City of Englewood, Englewood Township was dissolved. An earlier referendum on March 10, 1896, was declared unconstitutional.
Origin of name 
Englewood Township, the city's predecessor, is believed to have named in 1859 because the community had been called the "English Neighborhood", as the first primarily English-speaking settlement on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River after New Netherland was annexed by England in 1664, though other sources mention the Engle family and the heavily forested areas of the community as the derivation of the name. Numerous other settlements in the United States were named for Englewood as settlement in North America expanded westward. J. Wyman Jones is credited with convincing residents to choose Englewood for the city's name when it was incorporated over such alternatives as "Brayton" and "Paliscena".
Pre-Colonial and Colonial 
Englewood, like the rest of New Jersey, was populated by Lenape Native Americans prior to European colonization. The Lenape who lived in the Englewood region were of the "turtle clan" which used a stylized turtle as its symbol, but little else is known of those inhabitants.
When Henry Hudson sailed up what would become known as the Hudson River in 1607, he claimed the entirety of the watershed of the river, including Englewood, for the Netherlands, making the future region of Englewood a part of New Netherland. However, the region remained largely unsettled under Dutch rule as the Dutch did little to encourage settlement north of modern Hudson County, as the imposing New Jersey Palisades blocked expansion on the west bank of the Hudson.
In 1664, after the Dutch surrendered all of New Netherland to England, the rate of settlement picked up. The English were generous with land grants, and many families, not only English but also Dutch and Huguenot, settled the area, which during the colonial era was known as the English Neighborhood. Street names in Englewood still recall the relative diversity of its earliest settlers; Brinckerhoff, Van Brunt, Lydecker, Van Nostrand and Durie (Duryea), all Dutch; Demarest (de Marais), DeMott and Lozier (Le Sueur), French Huguenot; and Moore, Lawrence, Cole and Day, English.
Historical notes 
From 1906 until March 16, 1907, when it burned down, Englewood was the site of Upton Sinclair's socialist inflected intentional community, the Helicon Home Colony. Associated with the project were Charlotte Perkins Gilman and Sinclair Lewis.
The telephone industry made a United States "first" in Englewood with the introduction of what is known now as Direct distance dialing (DDD). On November 10, 1951, Englewood Mayor M. Leslie Denning made the first directly dialed long distance call, to Mayor Frank Osborne of Alameda, California. As of that date, customers of the ENglewood 3, ENglewood 4 and TEaneck 7 exchanges (who could already dial New York City and area) were able to dial 11 cities across the United States, simply by dialing the three-digit area code and the seven digit number (or the three-digit area code and the local number of two letters and five digits).
Vince Lombardi began his football coaching career at St. Cecilia High School, two years after his graduation from Fordham University. The National Football League (NFL) championship trophy is named in his honor.

Local government 
Beginning in 1980, Englewood switched from a Mayor-Council form of government to a modified Council-Manager plan of government in accordance with a Special Charter granted by the New Jersey Legislature. Under this charter, the mayor retains appointive and veto powers, while the council acts as a legislative and policy making body, with some power to appoint and confirm appointments. The City Council consists of five members: four are elected from wards of roughly equal population and one additional member is elected at-large. Administrative functions are responsibilities of the City Manager.
The mayor is elected city-wide to a three-year term of office and has significant powers in appointing members to the Planning Board, the Library Board of Trustees, and, with council confirmation, the Board of Adjustment. The mayor serves on the Planning Board. The mayor attends and may speak at council meetings, but voting is confined only to breaking a deadlock with an affirmative vote for passage of an ordinance or resolution. The mayor has veto power over any city ordinance, but can be overridden with votes from four council members.
The City Council consists of five members, each elected for a three-year term. Four are elected from the individual wards in which they live and the other is elected by a city-wide vote as an at-large member. The city is divided into four wards which are approximately equal in population. The City Council is the legislative branch of government, deciding public policy, creating city ordinances and resolutions, passing the city budget, appropriating funds for city services, and hiring the City Manager. The City Council meets generally four times per month (except during summer months).
As of 2012[update], the Mayor of Englewood is Frank Huttle, III (D, term ends December 31, 2015). Members of the City Council are Lynne Algrant (At-Large; D, 2015), Michael D. Cohen (Ward 2; D, 2013), Wayne Hamer (Ward 4; D, 2013 - serving the unexpired term of Jack Drakeford who died in August 2012), Marc Forman (Ward 1; D, 2014) and Eugene Skurnick (Ward 4; D, 2014).

As an alternative to regular public education, the city is home of the Englewood on the Palisades Charter School, which had an enrollment of 198 students in Kindergarten through fifth grade, as of the 2010-11 school year. Shalom Academy, a charter school with a focus on Hebrew language immersion, had planned to open for grades K-5 in September 2013, serving students from both Englewood and Teaneck, but was rejected by the New Jersey Department of Education in July 2012. The school had originally planned to open for the 2011-12 school year, but was forced to delay its opening date for 12 months after it was unable to demonstrate to the New Jersey Department of Education that it had obtained an appropriate facility to house its students and was given a "planning year" by the NJDoE to address outstanding issues.
Englewood is the home to a number of private schools. Dwight-Englewood School has 935 students in preschool through twelfth grade. Elisabeth Morrow School serves 462 students in preschool through eighth grade. Moriah School of Englewood is a Jewish day school with nearly 1,000 students in preschool through eighth grade.

In the face of a declining enrollment, St. Cecilia Interparochial School was closed by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark at the end of the 2010-11 school year, with an expected student body of 85 students for K-8 in the following year constituting less than half of the number of students needed to keep the school financially viable. St. Cecilia High School had been closed in 1986.
