After living in New City for over 20 years, I can say that it truly has an amazing hometown feel. It takes a relatively short amount of time to develop lasting connections with people. Additionally, the Clarkstown schools provide a great education, and really set its students up for success. I loved my time living in New City. I hope you find it as welcoming as I did.

A little boring at times, but sweet. It's 45 minutes outside of the city, so you get all the benefits of the city with none of the downsides, and the benefits of being in a suburban neighborhood. Barely any crime, lots of neighborhood activities. Schools are good education, but terrible buildings.
Experience of living here is great! Though not very many activities to do or sense of community, great people and places. Prices of homes are too much.
