I've been living in this area for the past 5 years and I have not experienced any unpleasant situation. This area is not too bad because there are 2 schools close, a playground so the kids can play after school and transportation is great.
Woodstock is a beautiful town in the Catskills Mountains. This town has all the small time charming factors. Cute stores, music, great food, and old hippies!!. There is lots of love in this town, helpful people, and great vibes.
