Top Private Schools in Williamsbridge
There are many public schools as well as a few Catholic Private Schools so deciding on a school for your children is easy. The neighborhood is generally safe, have not heard a gunshot yet unlike Newark, NJ, my previous neighborhood. Nightlife is a bit bland, a few bars around but no big clubs if you wanna hit a dance floor. Real Estate is high, there are always many houses for sale as well as apartments for rent. Lots of Jamaican food which I love, I have spotted also a Dominican restaurant if your feeling spanish flavors. Not to many Job opportunities aside from entry level jobs. Commute can be rather long on the train, expect contraction on train tracks, delays on weekends and sometimes transferring from train to a shuttle bus to reach the city. 1-1 1/2 hour train commute from the city.
The Williamsbridge is very safe and quiet, as well as convenient. There are many shops and eateries nearby. Also, you can find many parks in the area and schools.
In my area, the job market is very slow to professionals for instant teachers. For jobs within a company like McDonalds, it is easier as first, prospective employees have to present only a diploma from a high school to get the jobs at McDonalds. For a 99 cents store or a restaurant, prospective employees do not have to present any form of school leaving diplomas or certificates. However, for teachers and other professions like nurses, one has to be certified by the state and has a degree. For this, the market is very competitive.
