Question Poughkeepsie a Good Place for Singles?

How is the Dutchess County/Poughkeepsie area for single people? Just wondering what the area has to offer. I hear about a lot of people moving up there from the city but most of them have families. What about someone moving to the town but as a single person? Is it a good move?

Lots of restaurants, bars, shops. The Poughkeepsie Galleria stands to mind. I would not live in the City of Poughkeepsie. The Town and surrounding suburbs are ok.

That sums it up. Have you considered Beacon? It's a decent city, might not appeal to you, but drive through Poughkeepsie and Beacon. Beacon's a much better city to live in than Poughkeepsie. They both have tons of issues, Beacon having half the issues of Poughkeepsie, Poughkeepsie is criticized A LOT, and frankly it isn't a great city to live in, but don't feel uncomfortable because it has a lot of issues, there ARE good areas in Poughkeepsie, and you might end up wanting to settle there. As for Beacon, It is criticized a lot less than it should be. It also has a handful of issues, it's just that it have like I said a fraction of the issues of Poughkeepsie and is definitely a pretty decent place to live in IF it appeals to you. Bear in mind, the likelihood of you moving specifically to the City of Poughkeepsie may be low, but check the surrounding suburbia areas and areas like Arlington, Fairview, Town of Poughkeepsie, Wappingers (Wappinger and Wappingers Falls), Fishkill, Beacon etc.

If you plan to be a long-time resident of an area, Specifically Dutchess, you may want to consider moving out if you have kids, the schools ARE A NIGHTMARE if your kid is born with disabilities or isn't an Honor's Student. I am a victim of Southern Dutchess schools, I'd never put my kid through that if I had one, seriously I'd be damned to put my schools in Dutchess County schools, but some would disagree, I'm just saying look into it carefully.

Does anyone know of a good place to post a free ad to hire someone for promotional work in Poughkeepsie? I have an event this weekend on both Sat and Sun that I need to hire someone for asap. I tried Craigslist, but haven't had any luck and I hire for a national company, so I'm not familiar with the area. Thanks for any help!!
