Washingtonville Reviews

Having lived in over a half dozen ‘bedroom’ communities in NY, I think the washingtonville area is above average and way above average if money is a concern.
The local school system is much better than the online rankings and the proximity to shopping, historical sites, the river etc is as good as anywhere. The drawbacks are the commute to the city and the conservative leaning politics which show up most dramatically in the local police force. There’s no diversity and a palpable ethnocentric aire when dealing with law enforcement. However, the local court systems are 100% fair.
It’s definitely not Nassau county or westchester but it’s moving in a good direction.
Be careful with new construction as the houses go up overnight in the new developments, not enough time for a 3-4 bedroom home. Although the new housing looks nice now, I hate to imagine the problems a homeowner will encounter in 5-10 years.
Hope this helps you

Washingtonville is closely knit like a family. It is harder for younger generations to see but if you attend the many local events that there are around you find that there are good people just trying to settle down and make the best out of suburban life upstate.

However, it becomes apparent that the way of life is slow and it becomes a drag especially for young adults.

To enjoy Washingtonville is to enjoy the trees you see driving down the road. It's remembering the connections you made with someone who owns a local family restaurant. It's choosing between one of the two pizza parlors and chinese restaurants as your favorite and despising the other.

We may be a 'ghost town' as Zendaya might have said on her twitter account, but when the town gets to it we might just accidently burn down a Planet Wings.

It's been great here.
Relatively quiet village in Blooming Grove, New York. Much of the village's activity and notability comes from it's high school (Washingtonville Senior High School) and the Brotherhood Winery, America's Oldest Winery.
