Have been resident for past 14 years. Very safe place for family, less traffic unless you work in Albany downtown. Starting to get built up with shopping plaza. Good schools but very few parks. Close to I787. I90, traffic not that terrible.

This area has lots of wildlife and opportunities to explore the outdoors with wilderness. With the Adirondacks located and hour or so North of Albany, it allows anyone with access to a car and a passion for wildlife to explore the great outdoors.
Everyone is really close, neighbors actually know neighbors.
