About Paramus, NJ : Paramus is a relatively large borough located in the midst of Bergen
County. When the land was first settled, the Lenape Native Americans
called it "Paramus" meaning "land of the wild turkey," or "place of
fertile soil." The borough is also known for having some of the most
restrictive "blue laws" in the U.S., banning almost every retail and
white-collar business in the town from operating on Sundays. For that
reason, many shoppers visit Willowbrook Mall in Wayne, New Jersey on
Sundays. Paramus is adjacent to the Garden State Parkway (GSP), Route 17
and Route 4. Richard LaBarbiera is the current mayor of Paramus, serving
through December, 2014. The municipality's courthouse routinely hears an
average of 50 disorderly persons complaints, as well as over 50 traffic
tickets & DWI charges every week.
