Cuba is a fantastic town, it has loving families and it is a safe neighborhood. It is a small town everyone knows everyone. People walk outside their house and are able to give the name of every person that walks by their house. My experience with Cuba has been extraordinary, every person I have met in Cuba has been friendly. The one thing I would change in Cuba is that there is not a lot of big shopping places and that there are not a lot of multicultural people who leave in the city, but other than that Cuba is amazing.

Cuba is a small town in New York State that has about 3,000 people. The town is a wonderful place to live and has many restaurants that are open during the day. The town is relatively a safe place to live with very little crime. Cuba is a very nice to live in with many old, but old houses to live in. With the lake, there are plenty of activities to do in your free time and the lake is a fishermens heaven.
There is not much to do, mostly just bars. Not a great area for kids. The public schools are horrible, as someone who substitute taught they are not being taught what they need. They don't even get basic skills for every day life. The cost of living is low though. There is also very little diversity.
