It is always a very good idea to research any area you plan on buying property in. The best place to start are the town websites. They offer so much information including local phone numbers for police departments and school districts if you have specific questions.

There are many great towns in Orange County!

Although I now live in NYC (Plan to buy a house in OC this summer), I did however go to school there and I lived in Cornwall for a little over a year. I was pleased with the Cornwall area and New Windsor area. I would stay away from the CITY of Newburgh. The TOWN of Newburgh is mych better.

I have lived in Orange County for 7 years. I love it and think it's a great place to raise my children. I would focus on an area you are interested in and contact the local police, neibors, local merchants and a nearby playground.

If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
