Big Flats Reviews

5 reviews
All Categories
Big Flats is a great place to live, it is a very small town. The town does a lot of various things for the community such as providing summer camp to children, putting on senior citizen dinners, and they have annual fall, spring, and winter festivals. Everyone is very friendly and there are many opportunities here. The schools have great teachers and good curriculum.
The police here aren't called into action very often and their over all presence comes and goes in surges, they are generally nice and get their job done in a respectful manner. Horseheads is moderately safe, there's not a lot of violence here so thankfully we can live without concern or worry.
Although the place has some scenic appeal the over all atmosphere here is pretty crappy, not only is there a lack of things to do besides the over crowded shopping mall as well as the boring muted yellow corn fields.
