Wanaque (pronounced WANNA-kyew) is a borough in Passaic County, New Jersey. Located next to Ringwood and Pompton Lakes, Wanawue includes neighborhoods known as Midvale and Haskell, each of which has their own ZIP code and is served by their own separate post office. According to local historians, the name "Wanaque" is derived from the Lenni Lenape Native American word meaning, "rest and repose". A more popular interpretation is "land of the sassafras." Historians have found old deeds and documents which reveal the word Wanaque had many spellings; Wynokie, Wynocky and Wynockie.
