    It's a nice, rural community. There's lakes, The scenic Catskill mountains, and the Hudson River. It's beautiful and very down to earth. I would definitely live here again if I had to choose. There aren't many attractions or commercialized activities to participate in with out traveling 30 minutes, but its a beautiful place. Compared to the rest of the country, it is slightly poorer, but there are quite a few well-to-do individuals. I see it becoming slightly less rural, however it might be what the community needs to make it excellent.
