Westmoreland Reviews

Westmoreland is a small town in Central New York. It is a quiet town that has a lot of spirit. It is where I grew and almost all of my family lives really close to me. The public school there is small, but it a really great school to go to. The academics are competitive and the athletics are challenging. There are a few things I would change about Westmoreland, but the biggest thing I would change is for Westmoreland to be more environmentally conscious.

I always pictured myself to be a city girl. But when I moved to this small town in 2009, after my mom remarried, I realized how amazing the open outdoors can really be. Everywhere you go there is peace and quiet. Sure, if you're looking for a loud fun time you will find it. But every once in a while you get those days where you're sick of staying inside and want to take a breath of fresh air. Once you step outside, you get a warm feeling that you are right in the heart of nature. The skies are always clear and colored with pinks, oranges, and blues.My favorite time to go for a walk or a drive is during dusk hours. I feel as though I am driving through an Artist's painting. My front yard has a beautifully green lawn that stretches hundreds of feet; a perfect home to many animals that sometimes pop out of their niche to say hello to us. Many of my friends from college are from New York City. They always brag about how twinkly their home is with all of the skyscrapers and lights outside. And although that is a beautiful site, I personally love the view from my window better. In fact it can be just as twinkly with a night full of stars. It's definitely nothing close to Manhattan, but there's something wonderful about opening your window and seeing hundreds of shades of green. Nature is seriously beautiful.
Just like any other small town, it has its flaws. But Westmoreland is my home. I could walk across town (the road) for lunch and not have to worry about being abducted or getting hurt. Everyone was a friend if you ever needed something. People there are honest and would help you in any situation. It really was a great place to grow up.
