I've lived here all my life, and I absolutely love it! We have a great commute to the city. Also, this town is SAFE! I've never heard of a crime happening in my town. Everyone is nice and there is a wonderful sense of community. Lots of kids and block parties. The schools are amazing, and everyone comes out to Friday night football games at the high school. I HIGHLY recommend living here!

Briarcliff is a family focused community with excellent schools and recreation activities in a very safe environment that is within a reasonable commute of New York City (particularly mid-town).

Here is what Briarcliff is not:

* it is not inexpensive - housing costs are high and taxes are through the roof;
* it is not very diverse - although this could depend on what you mean by diverse;
* it is not easy for newcomers - let me be more precise; it is fine for new families with pre-school age kids who can "grow up" in the community - particularly if you are also involved in a local temple or church; much harder for kids (and their parents) to break-in socially later on.
I worked in Briarcliff Manor briefly, but always felt safe. It is a pretty well-to-do community since it is near NYC. The people were nice. Unfortunately, I do not know much about the school system or the businesses. The historical society is extremely proud of Briarcliff's history, which is wonderful to see.
