In Revolutionary days this area of Paramus was known by the unusual name of Sluckup. The name was derived from a local legend. A Dutch farmer hung his shirt on a nearby fence while working in his field. When he saw the shirt disappear into the mouth of a cow, he described the shirt as having been "sluck up" by the cow.
