Hello all,

I really need help. My finance and I are looking for areas in Orange County. He is a NYC Police Officer who will have to commute everyday. I work in Schenectady county and will also have to commute a couple days a week. I'm looking at two apartment complexes in New Windsor because it was suggested to me to be a decent place to live. We need to be some what in the middle for traveling to work for the both of us.

If anyone has any suggestions of any other areas that are in Orange county but closer to the Dutchess County border I would greatly appreciate any help you can give.

Hmmm...I used to work in Dutchess County and I had to commute from Newburgh. I lived in Parr Valley Apartments. It's was nice. I lived there for 5 years. It would be a longer commute for your husband than it would be for you. You can Yahoo Map it if you want. The street was called Parr Lake Drive. My commute was (maybe) 15 minutes to Dutchess. I haven't lived there in 4 years, so I can't speak to the situation there now...but, there was a nice sized and reasonably priced laundry room. Our apartment was really nice - about 780 sq. ft. We got 2 parking spots per unit. At that time, I felt safe enough at night to take walks in the dark. And, you'd still be close enough driving distance to major shopping. There's a Shoprite & Price Chopper within 10 minutes. I've never lived in New Windsor. You may find it more expensive than Newburgh, but I'm not 100% on that. I hope this helped.
