Old Tappan (pronounced Old tuh-PAN) is a Borough in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States. As of the United States 2000 Census, the borough population was 5,482.

Old Tappan was incorporated as a borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on October 18, 1894, from portions of Harrington Township, at the height of the Boroughitis phenomenon sweeping through Bergen County, based on the results of a referendum held two days earlier.[7] On April 23, 1896, additional territory was annexed from Harrington Township.
