The Borough of Tenafly is located in Bergen County, N.J. The Borough covers 5.18 square miles of hills and valleys and has 14,488 residents (U.S. Census 2010).
Tenafly evolved from grants of land to David desMarets (Demarest) in 1677, to Jacobus Van Cortlandt in 1688, and to Roelof Westervelt in 1695. Westervelt repaid the Indians in 1705 for his portion thus establishing more harmonious relations.
The name Tenafly is a modernization of the Dutch settlers phrase “Tiene Vly” which means ten swamps.
In 1776, Tenafly was surrounded by forests. There were four homes, a militia headquarters and a schoolhouse.
The Borough of Tenafly was incorporated in 1894 by an Act of the New Jersey State Legislature from portions of Palisades Township

Capillary veins are responsible for many wet basement problems
Rainwater gets pulled deeper into the ground by seepage and gravity.
As gravity pulls the ground water deeper into the soil, it moves sideways following the slope of the surrounding areas.
Top soil will absorb some of the water but as rain continues to fall the absorbent layers become even more saturated.
The water begins to follow the underground ‘paths of least resistance’ called Capillary Veins.
