Fort Lee is a thriving multicultural community with a rich history, established as a military encampment during the Revolutionary War, from which George Washington staged his defense of New York City. For a time in the early 1900s, Fort Lee was known as the motion picture capital of the world before the rise of Hollywood.
Today, approximately 36,000 have made Fort Lee their home, gravitating to its stunning cliffside views, diverse culture and convenient location. Its proximity to the George Washington Bridge, as well as I-95, the Palisade Parkway and Routes 4 and 46 provide ready access to the surrounding area, including shopping malls, sports arenas, museums, Broadway theaters and world-class restaurants.
Fort Lee real estate
The Fort Lee housing market can be roughly divided into the palisades high-rises and townhouses overlooking the Hudson River, and the single-family homes and duplexes that sprawl across the western part of the town.
