Carlton, NY is such a great small community. Everyone knows everyone. They are always willing to help each other out in any way possible. It's a great town to live in. It's a great place to raise a family. The only downfall to living here is that you would have at least a 30 minute commute to work.

Its a small town and very quite. Right in the country. It is still right off rt 98 but the traffic is mild. A great place to raise a family.
