It's very clique heavy. People tend to have too much money to know what to do with, so they nose in on other people's business and judge without evidence. However, the location is wonderful and safe. It's centrally located near the largest shopping mall in New York state and you can easily get to the Hamptons or to the city by train or car.

The area is safe, but there isn't much to do around here. The options are pretty limited. There are restaurants, movie theaters, and a mall nearby. Residents tend to keep to themselves.
when I first moved out here I was 15 just entering the 10th grade. My first week was great, everyone was nice. Then I realized the people that wanted to be my friends wouldn't talk to me because I didn't come from money. Others said it was because I didn't not grow up in the town. To have many friends from this town you would need to go to school here from elementary school.
