It seems like a nice, historic community right on Lake Champlain and Lake George, with a close proximity to the Adirondacks, Vermont(Green Mountains/Burlington, etc.) and even for trips to Montreal: Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce

Some nice lakes in the area. Laid back. I go there to buy day lilies from a grower on Eagle Lake.

Nice rural and Historic place, pretty dead in the Winter, Its not a hotbed of activities, the Yearly Indian war reenactments are the best.

It's a few hours away from Albany. Very rural. Lots of Revolutionary War history and reenactments happen there. There's not much there. It's a nice place to drive around for the views and photo ops.

What info exactly are you looking for? Asking for the good and bad about what? It's really a TEENY TINY town.

I lived in the Adirondacks from 1950 until 2011. I lived in the towns of Jay, Keene, Wilmington and around the Saranac Lake area, too. I have several friends in Ticonderoga. Although it's a beautiful area, I never saw a reason to live there. If you do decide to, the Chilson area around Putnam Pond is particularly beautiful.
Good luck to you in New York. I left, primarily because of the high cost of living and lack of arts.
