My town is what you expect when you live in the suburbs its a taste of the city tucked away in a town. We have great schools, shopping, hospitals. Our streets are always clean and grass and trees are always well maintained. For extra Curricular activities jobs, and activity for children and adults alike you don't need to go far. My family Participates in many and have plenty of friends. Having the Nj border near by is also a great advantage.
Suffern is a small suburban town that has a close knit community. The kids that you are in classes with from a young age are still there when you enter high school. The schools from elementary to high school have quality teachers who are always willing to help you. The schools pull from several other smaller towns to make up Suffern Central School District. The town is filled with mom and pop stores and restaurants. There's a camaraderie among the families. We have been going to our local library for the past 13 years and the librarians know our names.
