Crime & Safety
The town I live in is great. I've been blessed with a great education, nice friends, safe home, and so much more. It is an ideal place to raise kids. The only reason why I am not saying that my town "is the best" is because with so many great things, it sets people up for failure. My high school is ranked third in the state; our school sports teams are constantly winning championships; our students are going to the best colleges. This is all great, but if you aren't a star athlete, top notch student, or something like a prodigy, then you feel an external pressure from everyone's success around you. Other than that, however, my town is great.
Safe areas, you'll always see a cop around. Everyone knows your situation whcih sucks but overall nice.
Allendale is a beautiful town located only a short drive away from NYC. The people are nice and the schools and sports programs are insanely good.
