Say what you will about New Jersey, but if it’s such an awful place, why do so many Hollywood stars decide to live — and eventually die — here?

Having carved out a memorable career in such films as “Bang the Drum Slowly” the “Godfather Part II” and “Do the Right Thing,” the legendary actor Danny Aiello passed away at the age of 86 last week. So although it may seem too soon, I thought you might like to see the magnificent Bergen County house that he lived in.

Six bedrooms, five baths and over 6000 square feet with soaring ceilings and an open floor plan, this is the last place Danny Aiello called home.

Saddle River is a town where many high-level executives, CEOs, Hollywood stars, and just generally rich people call home.
