The Town of Ramapo has a history of being named one of the safest towns of the country. It's lushious green lawns and parks add to the atmosphere of the quiet reserved town. I've lived in Ramapo since I was six, it just keeps getting better! The emergency services are well funded and top notch.

Ramapo is a very beautiful suburb of New York City. The people that live here are extremely nice, they are accepting and caring towards all of their neighbors alike. The public schools provide quality education that is sadly missing in many other areas in the United States. The police do an amazing job keeping everyone safe and crime is so low that you can keep your door unlocked at night and not need to worry about anyone coming in. Ramapo is an amazing place that I would definitely want to live in for the rest of my life.
Ramapo is, for the most part, a great family friendly town. Not so much going on in terms of nightlife.
