West Sand Lake Reviews
This is a cute little town full of people that care about their community. Its nice to go out and know your neighbors. Large businesses in town include bonded concrete and hannaford. It's close to Albany and Troy but a very quiet town to live in. The schools are wonderful as well.
West Sand Lake is a peaceful little rural hamlet, about 20 minutes out of Albany. There are plenty of things to do within a 20 minute drive such as bowling, movies, malls, and various small businesses. The people are mostly friendly and the streets are very safe.
I haven't had a whole lot of problems with my community I guess my one complaint is that while everyone is friendly, most of the people kind of keep to themselves recently. This is a relatively new community and so far everyone who has moved in has yet to move out. I know almost all of my neighbors by name and they're mostly very friendly.
