New Hampton certain isn't the poster child of towns. Undesirable elements include two large dumps (one a toxic waste super fund site), a mental hospital for the criminally insane, a strip of car dealerships, a tattoo parlor, gun store, swamp, a few motels, a nudie bar, and an adult book store. Did I mention the high tension lines?

It sounds worse than it is, but I must say New Hampton is the least pleasant area of the town of Wawayanda to live in save for the chemical factory in Slate Hill which has some toxic waste issues.

New Hampton is an unincorporated village within the township of Wawayanda (pronounced, "way-way-YONDA"), whose name may have come about by a white person's misinterpretation of an indian saying, "Way, way, yonder."

The Town of Wawayanda is small and has no incorporated villages within it. School services are provided by the Minisink Valley Central School District which serves the townships of Wawayanda, Greenville, and Minisink. The district schools show average to better than average performance.

Outside of New Hampton, the town is very rural and quite pleasant; much like the rest of Orange county used be before the housing boom.
