Crime & Safety
I love alfred ny! I work here as a residence director at Alfred State. It is a great little town with a lot of charecter. There is a lot of local art, areas to hike and explore nearby, fishing, and more! However this town is not for everyone and my rating will reflect that. Being a small town, if you are not outdoorsy, you will not find much to do. There is only 3 options for food in town, no grocery store within walking distance, and not much for entertainment.
Alfred is a great place, a small town with a large community. I love it there! There's not much to do when your not in school, but Alfred is a beautiful town to walk through.
Alfred is a small college town, friendly, quiet, lively during the school semesters. When school is not in session, the "towners" come alive and there is a feeling of warmth and security within the area.
