Living In Northvale, NJ

Located in the northeastern section of Bergen County, Northvale borders Rockland County, NY, Rockleigh, Old Tappan and Norwood. In 1876, Ambrose Giraudat, one of the first merchants in Northvale, operated a business that manufactured lace, paper and artificial flower materials. He also owned and operated the A. Giraudat Way Factory on Railroad Avenue. In 1887, Railroad Guide Book listed various factories located in Northvale with the artificial flower industry leading the way. The Contini family had a large artificial flower business in Greenwich Village and opened a factory at 169 Paris Avenue for making “pips” (the center of an artificial flower). In the late 1880’s, the Smith Clay Company (near present day Shop Rite on Livingston Street) was making bricks for customers in New York City. The D’Amico Macaron Factory was at 192 Livingston Street, built in 1914, and later sold during the Great Depression. Early in the Twentieth Century, the Centofante family operated a small factory making trimmings for the garnet industry.
