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.
I have lived in Chappaqua since 2005 with my family. I grew up in this quaint town and I believe it has made me the person I am today. The library, middle school, and stores are all in the beautiful downtown Chappaqua. While the people can be snooty and snobby sometimes, everyone is friendly. It is a great place for school, even though the diversity is very poor. Overall, I have had a positive experience in this town.
