It's my favorite place in the world. So close, but a perfect distance from, New York City. It's very diverse and accepting. Great for families!
Nyack is a very peaceful town. Crime rates are slim to none in this town, as well. Nyack is very diverse; it is also a great place for tourists and attraction. Nyack has a great hospital (Nyack Hospital), with great patient care. The main street and broadway in this town, are great spaces for people interaction and great areas for sight seeing. Furthermore, Nyack park overlooks the Hudson river and provides open space for family and friends to unite.
On the other hand, parking is very limited for visitors. Nyack could certainly improve the amount of locations of supermarkets for residential and visitors' convenience. Job opportunities could also certainly be improved for the people.
