I live in Bellefair also and Sammarcus is not spot on at all.
1. There is no tennis in Bellefair.
2. Taxes are not close to 25K (we pay less than 20K) but then you have common charges to cover fees for the pool, gym etc.
3. There 32,000 yearly flights from HPN not 200,000 and I would estimate that 90%+ are small regional jets that service the northeast. No "Ear Popping Noise" from those guys...not even close. Sure you get your JetBlues and AirTrans every once in a while but 5-8 a day or so...
The reason the HOA member was skewered for his position on busing is because most of this community is made up of young families with children and this was an older man who DID in fact want to cut back busing, a major NO-NO when most of your homeowners have school age children. Foreclosure? "One, perhaps two" homes? When you have more than 200+ homes? Please...
Also, you CAN park overnight (It is the whole VILLAGE of Rye Brook that bans overnight parking November thru April) and no one bothers you for leaving toys out - where does this guy (Sammarcus) think we live? Cuba?!?!? On another note - taxes may have doubled based on SMALL numbers but so do home values. I purchased my home here 10 years ago for 400K, and yes prices have dipped but it is still worth more than double. 3-4 years ago it was worth 1.1M - and I would bet the RANCH that taxes will NEVER be $200,000 a year in 30 years!!! That is just insane thinking!
