Fort Covington Reviews

In this small town there is about as much night life as a hibernating bear. The public schools are just large enough to be in the same divisions as the much larger and much better funded schools like Massena and Malone. But most of the time facing those schools while being a smaller one is discouraging. As for the safety the majority of Fort Covington's population are either Native or white so people just mind their own business.

Fort Covington is a very small town located in northern New York. It is well kept throughout the year, and all public facilities are updated when needed. The town is pretty quiet and there is an enforced curfew. All town functions are monitored by local departments like the police and fire and rescue squad. Fort Covington is also a very historical town because of the many wars fought where we call home today.
Growing up around here was nice because of the fresh air and wilderness. However there is little opportunity for growth and experience, you get that feeling that you're stuck, that you could be doing more. However it is a close knit community that comes togeather when somebody needs it, your typical small town America feel.
