Nyack is my hometown! It has been the best place to live in, because everyone is so accepting of one another. The schools have amazing programs! There's a huge variety of restaurants. Memorial Park is my favorite park to go to in Nyack.

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.
When I first moved to Nyack for college, I totally fell in love with the area. The mountains, the fragrance of nature and the hudson river flowing beautifully had me in awe of this place I now call home. The community seem to be very supportive of each other and a lot goes on in downtown such as; charity events, festivals and running marathons. Everyone seem so nice and I can see the glow of happiness just shining off their face and that makes me feel warm inside. I personally would not change anything of Nyack because it feels like home to me and everything about this small town is perfect.
