Croton is a very liberal town, so if that is not your thing...don't move here! People are generally very friendly, although there are definitely some catty people. Lots of helicopter parents! Overall a very beautiful town, even voted nicest town in New York! It's super safe and a great place to commute from.

Extremely safe, and a great place to raise a family. However, it is an incredibly expensive place to live in. There are many nice places to eat with a wide range of options; there is everything from Italian, to Mexican, to Chinese, to American. It is an extremely caucasian town, with a growing Hispanic population. There is the Black Cow, a cafe where everyone enjoys hanging out. There are parks where children can play. The town is right on the Hudson River which makes it a very scenic town. The Croton Landing is a great place to walk, run or bike, especially in the summer. There are many job opportunities for high school students in the local restaurants, cafes, daycare centers and pharmacies. However, there are limited job opportunities for adults in the town. The commute to New York City is extremely easy, and many working people take advantage of that.
Very connected town supported by it's relatively small population. I would say its overwhelming liberal or views tend to sway this way. There are many outlets to connect with the outdoors (Croton Dam, Landing, Croton Point). Some very good food places but they often have a hard time staying in business in Croton due to its relatively small population. Schools are very good but taxes are increasingly getting more expensive.
