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 a prospering town, located only 30 minutes from NYC. The easy commute into the city allows for many job opportunities. The town is very safe and has a strong connection between police and residents. New City offers many recreation activities, including free recreation centers and many hiking trails The schools are excellent and prepare students for the jobs of tomorrow. Living in New City is not cheap, but expenses of living in this well to do town is worth the investment.
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.
