I liked the schools, the teachers and staff were good. Great extra curricular activities and programs offered during and after school and would like to see more community events put together.
I've been living here for about 2 years now. Stores close fairly early around here and there are many out-of-business commercial buildings that could be used more efficiently. Commute to New York City takes about 1 hour without traffic.
