This small rural town is improving, but has a long way to go. It has much potential, being located at the crossroads of two major roads, but other nearby towns have been developed at a much faster rate. I'm looking forward to seeing how Amenia grows in coming years

Typical small town, everyone knows everyone. The school is on the decline with a diminishing youth population. Beautiful views of the valley and a paved "rail trail" for people to ride bikes, run or jog.
Small town lots of drama. Not much for kids to do. School district is not a great place for a good education.
