New Lebanon Reviews

3 reviews
New Lebanon is a simple one cow town that people just pass through from New York City just to get to Albany. It seems like absolutely nothing to the naked eye. However, the fact that the town is so small, there is a large community that knows everyone, and this gives out a very family like vibe. This aspect is both a positive and negative thing, as secrets are not kept well, as, for example, the news of a person dying will flow throughout the town like a mud slide. The New Lebanon Central School is one of the nicest schools, as the teachers are caring and easy to talk too. Students are a hit and miss, though the school is like a big family, as we may not all like each other, we tend to stick up for one another and love each other through lick and thin. Overall, life in New Lebanon is good for families who are well off and want the best experience for their children.

The town of New Lebanon is a small friendly area where everyone is familiar with everyone. The town of New Lebanon is a safe and comfortable place to grow up . New Lebanon is also a place for personal business growth but not a place to fulfill your dreams with endless opportunities of careers.
New Lebanon is a very small town with few people. That being said, yes it can sometimes be boring since there are a lack of things to do. However, New Lebanon has a very closely knitted community which is mostly formed among the school. The town itself has many local restaurants that add for a very small town feel.
