We are looking forward to moving to a more active area soon.
In other words, whether the school system is populated by the over-privileged or not, it largely is what you make of it. You absolutely canNOT keep too close an eye on their friends, but as long as the interactions at home are interesting and feed their heads, they'll want more of that and try to choose accordingly; the selection isn't as large as some, but it's OK. They'll gain a taste of what street-smarts are, and of why it's good not to need them, and of sympathy for the downtrodden -- all good things. The air is pretty clean and likely to stay so.
Oops. I'd bet this doesn't stay up long; too bad, it should. Oh, well. Cheers
lovely homes. However, taxes are very high ; quite a few tax foreclosures each year. I suggest looking inthe watershed towns , if cost is a factor,where taxes are low due to NYC contributions for the DEP, reservoir systems. Much land has bbeen acquired by the city to have more control over the sources that feed the reservoirs. This creates lots of pristine acres surrounding homes (like mine) and protected spaces for hiking, hunting and fishing.
