    Brewster Reviews

    Brewster is a beautiful place to live, close enough to NYC to be there within an hour but far enough away to enjoy the trees, mountains, birds, lakes, etc.
    Review Brewster
    Everything on Niche has been easy to use and it is clear to see what I am looking for at all times. I like that I can tell which colleges I could connect with and scholarships I could be linked to.
