Chappaqua is a tight-knit community where people care about their neighbors. The greatest testament to this is that a large number of people raised here move back to raise their own families. Fundraiser for those in need is sell out of seats. The majority of teachers at every level are passionate and genuinely thrilled to work with such motivated students. Kids stay in touch after high school, recall their childhood fondly and come back for alumni events and sporting events.

Living in Chappaqua is really comfortable because of several reasons. First environment surrounding the city is so amazing in terms of lots of trees and flowers; namely, it is so beautiful to live in. Not a lot of cars and vehicles is another comfortable to live in. I live in near train station, so it is perfect to commute to go anywhere. However, I would like to say one thing we have to consider for our living condition. Because of so many trees we have, sometimes it is problematic. For example, several days ago, there was an accident related to falling a big, giant tree across the road. Therefore, we have to indeed think about old and big trees next to the roads to prevent from big accidents.
As a community, Chappaqua is one of the best places to be. It's filled with rich and sometimes even famous people like Hillary Clinton. There's no crime, and houses are pretty large. However, since it is a rich town, it is costly to live here. The schools are great, so the real estate market is high. Job opportunities are hard to find in Chappaqua, since it is a very small town. However, commute to New York City is very easy.
