Great town! Safe, lots to do, plenty of parks to get outdoors with. Considering buying our home here. Access to NYC via bus routes and nearby towns have train stations to the city.

I lived here since I was 6 I'm now 21 and feel like I have no ties to the area. Not a lot goes on around here, the "downtown" is just a string of not really interesting stores on both side of a street, and there's not really anywhere cool or popular to hang out. It is safe from my perspective,(I'm a guy) I bike and run at night and have had no moment where I've been afraid because of the area. the school system is pretty average there are usually a couple of kids going to ivy league and others who don't go to college. the county high schools are better academically and you need to test in while in middle school and they provide bussing so it's not hard to do, but is hard to do high school sports if you go there.
It is a very small and quiet town. The food places and restaurants are pretty good. As for the school system, when I️ was in high school, it was decent. The faculty and staff were overall nice.
