Yorktown Heights Reviews
Yorktown Heights is centrally located between New York, NJ and CT. As a professional your 30 minutes to an hour for each location. You have the ability to commute to work and relax in a quaint home town. There are lots of activities and special community outings throughout the year. Even a light up parade in the winter months. The people are friendly and helpful and have a strong connection as a community. The schools are top notch. The police keep the community safe and are very professional. There is a neighborhood firehouse and a parade honoring them. Yorktown also has a top notch ambulance house. Most of the kids will know the police by name because they come to schools and get to know the kids volunteering etc. The parents in this town are very involved and raise very well manor smart children. This makes the college process very competitive. The are also centrally located between two hospitals. Lots of doctors office close by as well.
Yorktown Heights is a very nice town, it’s family oriented and I feel safe when I’m walking with my children around town! The town has a lot of activities for everyone. I love the fact that everywhere we go my kids bump into their friends. The school here is top rated and my kids since they started coming here have excelled in their grade. It is a little expensive to live here but I feel that we get fir what we pay for, amazing schools, family friendly town, safety and s very good community over all.
Yorktown Heights is a mid-size suburban town an hour away from New York City via the Metro North train. It's a relatively neighborhood, quiet, with lots of wildlife parks and biking/hiking trails for the nature-lover. There are also a lot of large shopping centers nearby, e.g., Danbury mall, Woodbury Commons (outlet mall), Somers Commons, Beach Shopping Center (has a Multiplex Cinema, WalMart, B&N, Home Depot, and more) and several large chain groceries that make it very convenient and good area to live in. The only downside is that Yorktown does not have its own train station. The nearest ones are at least a 20 minute drive, and then there's the matter of having to pay for parking because of not being a resident of that town, which is a hassle and can get expensive for those wishing to commute to the city for work or for fun.
