Ossining is one of the most under rated towns in Westchester. Schools are excellent, the town is beautifully diversified, and prices still low . The town is getting its cool on- there is a great coffee shop, vegan restaurant, craft beer bar, a new rental development with a high end restaurant, and a new NY State Farm brewery opening soon on Spring Street that will have music. And by the way, this town is full of artists, actors,musicians and writers. You can catch great jazz here any weekend at the Elks, or see an original play at Westchester Collaborative Theater.

In the past decade, the shifting demographics of Ossining have reflected the changes occurring throughout the United States. The town census revealed that the town is now predominately first and second generation Hispanic immigrants. Throughout the country there have been reports of conflict and xenophobia, however the town of Ossining has embraced the diversity of its new residents.
I went to, and now work in, the Ossining school system. I have seen how quickly the schools have adapted to the needs of their student body--a universal preschool program, bilingual instruction, food assistance programs, and endless extracurricular activities including: a nationally competitive science research program, New York's best Girls Basketball program, and a talented theater program. We use our resources like no other district, celebrating the diversity we have. I am grateful to have grown up in a town which has brought so many different people together.
I lived in Ossining for about 5 years and the place was beautiful! The schools, the stores, and the people were very welcoming. I enjoyed my time there! However, it is for people who enjoy the quiet at night, most definitely not the city!
