Morris Reviews

Morris is a small quaint rural town in NY. It's a very safe environment and very family friendly! There are not many places to shop (a gas station, restaurant, and soon to be Dollar General!). Morris is probably 20-25 minutes from Oneonta where there are a lot of shopping places and restaurants.
