Monsey is a warm community, with outstanding leaders that supports an atmosphere that everybody cares about one another.
The care people have between each other goes beyond giving a cup of sugar to the neighbors. Its a common sight to see people stopping to help someone whose car broke down, and even chatting friendly as they offer assistance.
The high cost of living does make things a bit challenging, although for the warm and home-y feel, I'm glad I live in Monsey. It truly is, home sweet home.

Well, people are helpful and diversified. Public schools have transportation system. Which helps the kids who don’t drive. There are plenty of grocery stores around. Food is delicious.
Best place for a wholesome community. Beautiful location right next to Harriman state park. Convenient to major highways and trains and buses to the city.
