New City Reviews
New City is a very family-friendly neighborhood. Good schools, lots of community places (library, park,etc.). In addition, it is a twenty-minute drive from New York City and close to the Palisades Mall which has many stores for all your shopping needs.
I grew up -from age 13-in New City, and my mom still lives there. It's a pretty town and relatively safe, but beyond boring and non-descript. Nothing going on, no sense of community, incredibly isolating, No arts scene. Basically it's a suburb for people with kids who are only seeking good schools (though those were unexceptional, especially Clarkstown North, which only cares about pumping out students with good GPA's so that they receive State funding) and mediocre restaurants. Could be any Midwestern 'burb.
New City is far enough from but close enough to NYC to offer a quieter suburbian experience with ease of transportation access to the city via bus, train, or car, making it very appealing to me as for why I live there when attending university in Manhattan. However, real estate prices and taxes, as well as rental prices, are a bit steep compared to other areas adjacent to NYC.
