Bedford Reviews

Bedford neighborhood is quiet, family friendly. And it is close proximity to supermarkets and other different places of interest.
Review Bedford
I've lived here my whole life and it's been a great experience. It's a small town, but is close enough to New York City to not feel like you're in the middle of nowhere.
There isn't much crime going on around here. You hear of a few minor incidents but nothing major that has ever made me afraid to walk around town.
