Borders Books & Music
Borders Books shares a building with Bed, Bath and Beyond at the east end of the Interstate Shopping Center. Although it is possible to enter the mall from the Franklin Turnpike, we recommend the Route 17 approach. Borders abuts Route 17 South.
FROM ROUTE 17 SOUTHBOUND:
The entrance to the Interstate Shopping Center is from Route 17 South, shortly past the Spring Street Exit and just before the Franklin Turnpike overpass. It is about three miles south of the junction of Routes 17 and 287, just past the Best Western and Howard Johnson.
FROM ROUTE 17 NORTHBOUND:
Travel north on Route 17 and make a U-Turn at the Spring Street Exit in Ramsey, New Jersey. This is about 1/2 mile past the Franklin Turnpike Exit and about 3-1/2 miles past the Allendale Road Exit most of you take to our meeting site in Upper Saddle River. Follow the directions from Route 17 Southbound.
FROM THE GARDEN STATE PARKWAY NORTHBOUND:
Take Exit 163 which is about 2-3/4 miles after the toll plaza. This is a left lane exit and puts you onto Route 17 North. Follow directions for northbound 17 above. You will be on Route 17 for a little more than 10-1/4 miles before you hit the Spring Street Exit.
FROM ROUTE 287 IN NEW YORK:
Follow the signs for Route 17 South, Mahwah, New Jersey. This is a left lane exit, so be sure to get into one of the two leftmost lanes. Follow the directions from Route 17 Southbound.
FROM ROUTE 287 IN NEW JERSEY:
This is an awkward interchange. Follow the signs for Route 17 South and Mahwah, New Jersey. The exit will put you onto a long ramp that makes a “U” and deposits you on 287 heading the opposite way. Get into the left hand lanes and follow the signs for Route 17 South. Follow the directions listed above for Route 17 Southbound.
FROM ROCKLAND COUNTY VIA LOCAL ROADS:
Travel Route 59 to its western terminus in Suffern, New York. Turn left and proceed south along Orange Avenue. Orange Avenue becomes the Franklin Turnpike when it crosses into New Jersey. Continue south until you cross Route 17. Turn right at the first traffic light after the highway. This is the Interstate Mall. Turn right at the front of Shop-Rite and continue in the direction of Route 17. Borders is the last store before the highway.
FROM BERGEN COUNTY VIA LOCAL ROADS:
Proceed north on the Franklin Turnpike and turn left into the Interstate Mall in Ramsey, New Jersey.
