Voorheesville is a really safe, small town. No worries about crime or violence around. The school district is really good. The small town may or may not be suitable for everyone-it's kinda like if you didn't grow up here, you won't really ever "fit in". Many families and young kids around, safe neighborhoods to grow up in. The only downside is you can't get anywhere in under 10 minutes- besides the schools, Hannaford market, and some small food places. Hannaford plaza is a big hit- also Indian Ladder Farms, for apple picking and fall activities.

This is a great little town where everyone looks after everyone. Kids are safe playing outside and the school district is second to none. There is currently a lot of new construction going in too. This is a perfect area for young families as well as those with aging parents. Crossgates Mall is about a 15 minute car ride and Price Chopper, Shop-Rite and Hannaford are all within a 10 minute drive. The Albany Rail Trail runs through town and our section will be paved this year. It will allow you to walk or bike ride all the way down to Albany. The only draw back to the town is that everything seems to close down by 9pm. Still, a small price to pay for such a great area.
Great town to live it. Small, everyone knows everyone. Quiet, nothing really happens. The school system is great, though bullying seems to be a huge problem.
