I enjoy my neighborhood because of the calm and serene setting. It is very beautiful with lots of scenery. The people are also very friendly! There are lots of community events, as well!

I have been living in New Freedom for my whole life. The town is very kid friendly, we have a local ice cream shop, train station, dance studio, and many local restaurants and gas stations. However, the nightlife is poor because the town goes to sleep around ten at night. There are 3 local elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. We have a police station and fire station right in the town center, so police and ambulance wait time is five minutes maximum. Many of the small business and shops are always looking for part time employees, so employment is always available. Many real estate companies have been investing in New Freedom, so real estate is increasing, however the new neighborhoods are gorgeous but pricey. The town is very small, so commute time is very short. Personally, it take me eight minutes to commute to Susquehannock High School, which is in a different town.
I like that it is a small town and there is little to no crime. It is generally pretty quiet and I always feel safe. There is a park and a really good ice cream place. The only thing that I would wish for is more restaurants, like a fast food restaurant would be nice.
