I live in a beautiful area of the Hudson Valley! It gave me a great childhood, where I was able to stay busy with healthy activities from hiking to going to the movies. Even now, this location has diversified and commercialized a bit more to offer options in shopping, eating, job opportunities, etc. With its expansion over the past decade, there are some infrastructure adjustments that still need to be addressed- especially with the traffic signals on the roads- as well as a better commitment to conservation of areas that do not need to be developed. Overall, however, this is a great community.

I've lived in New Windsor, in the same house, my entire life. I loved the school distract since it allowed me to meet so many more people and gave me a lot of opportunities that a normal high school would not have.
My only complaint about the town is there isn't any sidewalks so you cannot walk anywhere, which would have been a nice opportunity to have.
Between New Windsor and Newburgh there is a lot of historical locations that are often forgotten about but are actually pretty cool features. Along with how scenic the area is (especially in the fall) there is plenty to do outdoors.
I hav been living in new Windsor for 16 years. My parents moved here when I was one year old. Since that’s all I know, therefore I love living here. I have great friends and also some family members living here. I love to Woodbury common, they have all the major brands that you can imagine. We also have a lots of farm in the area to get fresh fruit and vegetables. I love my town.
