This is a top-notch place to live. All within a few minutes of Albany and access to activities in Schenectady, Troy, and Adirondack areas and beyond. It is small and safe. This suburban town rolls up by 9:00 PM so look to Albany for recreation in the evenings. Good shopping for groceries, local venues, and great parks for children/adults. Great school district! Close to many events in Capitol District. Safe neighborhoods and town parks nearby.
