Shrub Oak Reviews

1 review
Compared to neighboring cities, this hamlet’s population is low ~ which means more space for you. Since its not heavily populated, becoming a homeowner can very well become a reality than just a concept/ dream. Let me save you some time: there is a sense of safety, peacefulness, and history here. Before Belmont Park opened (in 1905), residents here were betting, every Saturday, to see if their own horse could outshine their competitors. Then the Taconic State Parkway came into town and took over the 200 acre estate/ track. With this, Shrub Oak became more accessible and so did reaching a higher paying job.

Additionally, sending your pupil to a Lakeland Central School could very well designate them a spot at any college. All the pupil has to do is put in effort.

If the goal is to move a bit more towards Heaven and a bit more away from Hell, Shrub Oak is a good start. Hope to see you!
