Hoosick Falls Reviews

3 reviews
It's a small town, nothing at all to do unless you enjoy the music in the park during summers, the town pool or the ice skating rink that's only open if the weather cooperates. Unfortunately the town has gone downhill with neighboring Bennington going way down hill. The local police are absolutely bored in that they seem to pick and choose who they harass. In terms of crime it's nothing but harassment and assaults. Drugs are very common and it's depressing. Job market is next to nothing. It was great to grow up here but I'll definitely not grow old here, it's not worth more than maybe a visit or pass through. Don't stay, you'll be doing yourself a favor.
