Ossining is a very diverse town in Westchester New York. In my personal opinion this is one of the. most diverse suburban towns in Westchester. The public schools do very well in all departments, especially excelling in science. The schools science research program has won numerous awards for many student's projects, all thanks to the great teachers that oversee the organization. The worst thing about Ossining would definitely have to be the affordability. Many of the residents struggle to afford proper housing and many properties cost an ungodly amount of money.

Ossining is a very diverse place to live. Everything I need is local to me but my home is situated away from the busy shops and its quiet. The Village offers so many fun things to do, including free movie nights down at by the water, Food Trucks and Live music. The library has a variety of events that are open to the public and the town recreation center has an indoor pool that is open to residents for a small annual fee, year round.
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.
