Hyde Park/Poughkeepsie is the center of a four-college community, surrounded by outlying suburbs and downtown areas. There is no shortage of diversity in age groups, cultures, political affiliations, or things to do. Just half an hour north, one can enjoy downtown Rhinebeck including shops, restaurants, and Sunday farmer's markets. Just two hours south lies New York City, arguably the most interesting and progressive metropolis on the east coast of the United States. This area is livable; however, if I were to move back to New York I would likely not live specifically in Hyde Park, but rather the city or somewhere further upstate.
I have lived in Hyde Park for 2 years and close to the town for many years. A few positive comments about the Hyde Park area; a small town feeling, close to trains, highways, good restaurants, good private schools, 3 colleges, surrounded by many towns with lots of cultural activity and the home of the Roosevelt and Vanderbilt mansions.
