Any recommondations as to where is a great place to raise children upstate?; I have three children ( Girls ) , so I'm looking for good schools, Stores not to far to travel to. My main concern are the schools and community areas. Also whats not to far to connect to metro or LIRR. Ideas and suggestions are welcome. Thanks

How far Upstate are you willing to move? Maybe Nyack, Highland Falls, Cornwall, Brewster, etc., if you don't want to go too far Upstate.

Long Island isn't upstate, so I don't quite understand the LIRR reference. Otherwise, it all depends on your budget....look into Orange (Montgomery, Chester, Goshen, Washingtonville, Florida, Warwick) / Dutchess (Fishkill, Wappingers) / Putnam Counties (Cold Spring, Garrison, Brewster).

Will you need to commute to NYC? If so, to mid-town or downtown. This may make a difference in the suggestions from folks here.

By the way, the railroad in Westchester is Metro-North. Metro-North is also in Orange and Rockland, though it's operated by New Jersey Transit. The LIRR (also part of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority) connects Long Island to NYC.

The maps on the respective sites may be of help in identifying locales for you.

MTA [Metropolitan Transportation Authority]- Metro-North: http://www.mta.info/mnr/

MTA - LIRR: MTA Long Island Rail Road

New Jersey Transit: New Jersey Transit - Home

Metro North and the LIRR are separate; both are part of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, though.
