Nice, friendly family oriented community close to everything. Great commute with express train to NYC, easy access to highway. Nice neighborhoods outside the village, beautiful nature and scenery.
This small family friendly village has lots of young families. Because of this an increasing number of grandparents have also relocated to the village to be close to their grandchildren. These demographics make for a tight and competitive housing market.

The excellent school district is relatively small but offers a lot for its size. So far it has stepped up to the challenge of accommodating an increasing number of children from families renting just to be in the school district they consider the most superior in the area.

Frequent train service and the 47 minute express train ride to midtown Manhattan make the village a commuters haven.

A significant portion of the village is park land and nature trails abound. Bounded by the Hudson River to the west and the pristine Croton River to the Southeast, there are opportunities for lots of water based activities.

Croton-on-Hudson is certainly a place where everyone will know your name, or at least know you by your child's name.
