Located in northeastern New Jersey some twenty minutes from Manhattan, Wood-Ridge was incorporated in 1894. Once a place of farms and woods, the borough was transformed first in the 1920s by Sunshine City, a thousand-house development, and then in the mid-1900s by the renowned airplane-engine manufacturer Curtiss-Wright Corporation, which built its headquarters here. Wood-Ridge highlights early landowners-among them the Brandenburgs and the Brinkerhoffs-and later people of accomplishment, including Grace Castagnetta, Frank Lovejoy, and Frankie Muniz. It also looks ahead to the proposed redevelopment of Westmont Station.
