If you'd like more info you can reach me at Caren.Maisel@CBMoves.com
I'd be happy to pass along various options so you can get a better handle on the area.
I used to live in Mahasset, NY; just outside of Queens in Long Island. This is an excellent area, great community and have wonderful schools.
However, I believe the next town close to the city, Great Neck has even better school. One of the olympic figure skating champion, Sarah Hughes, came from there!
The only thing is both area tent to be pricy as not only there are great schools (a huge part of location), great community (second part of location) and they are also very close to NYC (3rd location)
Of course, you are always welcome to move to Marin County, CA (Could not resist the tempation to mention my town :-))
Also feel free to call with any questions anytime. Brett
