York is a beautiful, historic town. There is very little crime in most areas. I have lived here most of my life.

Just moved to York it's a wonderful city and love it here. York has an amazing school system. Nice people and very quiet area to love.
Nice quiet place to live. Country but close enough to the city that you can still enjoy city nightlife.
