I love my town because it's very safe and has a very friendly neighborhood-- however, there are very few things we can actually do in town. There are no restaurants, attractions; we do not even have sidewalks on most streets.
If you love being surrounded by extremely intellectual people, this is the place to be. The education system is one of the top in the state and people are all friendly. Taxes are expensive, but close proximity to New York City and other opportunities make it worth it. There is a large Jewish population.
