Need a little info. Husbands company is moving to Oak Hill and wants him to transfer with them. We currently live in NJ and have 3 school aged children. I don't know anything about the area or surrounding area's. Is this a nice place to live and raise children. Any information about this or surrounding areas would be very helpful. Thanks

Oak Hill is in Greene County about maybe 30 miles south of Albany. This is a very rural area just northeast of the Catskills. You will like or not like depending on your likes. If you positively love suburbia, this may seem isolated to you. On the other hand if you find NJ too crowded for your taste and long for the country, you'll love it. Things to get used too. It will snow more than NJ and you will probably have your own well and septic system if you buy a house. Also there will most likely not be natural gas service. 'm not sure about cable availability as I live one county south in Ulster. You could choose to live in the Albany suburbs if you find Oak Hill too small.

Thanks for the info. Rural is no problem for me, personally I would rather not be able to see into my neighbors house as I can now. lol I actually prefer small - since my husband wouldn't want to commute to far and the company is going to be located in Oak Hill, what other areas might we look into, besides Albany. Like I said I would rather it be more rural and small.

Thanks again.

Just about anywhere around Oak Hill, Greenville or Durham and Cairo would be good in that case. Scout the real estate for the area online. I don't know about the schools. The only place I've seen anything negative about in general is the Village of Catskill, but I live one county south. If you like rural, you will love this area. The Catskills are right nearby with hiking , skiing, and trout streams.
