Tenafly (pronounced /ˈtɛnəflaɪ/) is a borough in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2000 Census, the borough population was 13,806. Tenafly is an affluent suburb of New York City .

The first Europeans settlers in Tenafly were the Dutch, who began to populate the area during the late 17th century. The name "Tenafly" itself is derived from the early-modern Dutch phrase "Tiene Vly" or "Ten Swamps" which was given by Dutch settlers in 1688.[8][8]

Tenafly was incorporated as a borough on January 24, 1894 by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature from portions of the now-defunct Palisades Township, based on the results of a referendum held the previous day, at the height of the Boroughitis phenomenon sweeping through Bergen County at the time.[9][10]

New Jersey Monthly magazine ranked Tenafly as the 65th best place to live in New Jersey in its 2008 rankings of the "Best Places To Live" in New Jersey.[11]
