The best town to live in New York State. School district is beyond amazing. Beautiful houses & apartments. Crime rate is almost obsolete. Has an old fashion feel to it...friendly neighbors. Lots of little shops.... local businesses are always important to support. Beautiful parks and lakes... to jog & take your children to play. It’s just a great neighborhood to grow up or live in.
There are quiet neighborhoods as well as stores close by. It is a safe environment with friendly people and parks aren't too far away.
