My husband and I are looking at a house on Meakin Ave. Does anyone know if the area floods? The realtor said it was on the cusp of a flood zone.

You'll know after the next big rainfall. We bought a home that was not in a flood zone, then a CVS Pharmacy was built and guess what? Everybody on the opposite side of the new CVS got basements full of water last April. The town said we were suppose to have a meeting with CVS to work out a plan to fic the problem for next time.
That was last April. Almost six months ago.
Overbuilding in the State of New Jersey is creating more problems then it's worth. And the city engineers should be accountable for the disasters they create, but money always seems to talk and we all know what walks.

I lived in Rochelle Park for fifty years. Yes, Yes, Yes this area was hardest hit. Find yourself a new realtor he is not being honest with you. This area there were people who lost their entire homes to Floyd. Ask your realtor to bring up the address on the Fema website to find out the flooding problems. I had a realtor show me a house in this area. He didn't know I live in Rochelle Park all my life. I asked is this in a flood zone. His answer was the sheet on the house said no. He said they just have to remove the contamenated soil. Where did the contaminated soil come from the flood. I made him look up this addrees on the internet Fema site. He called the office advertising this house informing them to put this on the fact sheet. Clue any house they tell you needs flood insurance has flooded.
