I love living in Suffern. It is a small local town with many residents. We as a town take pride in our community. For example we have yearly traditions where we have a Christmas parade, Street Fairs, a Veterans Day Parade, and specifically Suffern Day, which is unique to just our town. There are many great places to eat and Suffern. For recreation we have ball fields, parks, a town pool, and very convenient downtown. Suffern has great a school district, hospital, fire department, and police department. Suffern is a very welcoming, clean, lively, and friendly town to live in!

I came to the United States in March of 2016. My family chooses this neighborhood because It is a great place to live in. Suffern is a village incorporated in 1796 in the town of Ramapo, Rockland County, New York, United States. It is very old town and this town has been always safe place. There is three school in Suffern: Elementary School, Suffern Middle School, and Suffern High School. All of them are safe and all of them has a great educational system. I like Suffern because it is small, quiet and clean town. My neighborhood is small but I have great neighbors. We always respect each other and I always feel like I am welcome here and this is my home.
I have lived in the Village of Suffern for 25 years. I love it here. This is my home. A diverse , friendly, loving community that cares about one another. Community activities strengthen that bond with parades, concerts, BBQ's,....
Schools are top notch. Everybody knows everybody but lets you be. Safe neighborhoods with our own hospital, fire department, DPW, water, and police department. We have our own D.A.R.E. hockey rink, baseball fields, parks, a town pool, historic museums. A beautiful, historic town nestled between the Ramapo mountains that took part in the Revolutionary War providing us with a rich history.
I love it here.
