Mu husband and I are in Milton and we LOVE it! The schools are great and there is alot of that small town feeling while still being close to everything. It is only a 5 min drive to the mid-hudson bridge. Anywhere in Marlboro is wonderful.

I grew up in Ulster County. It's beautiful. Where are you moving from?

I am moving from Plattsburgh, New York. Even though the City is really nice, I don't like the winters up there!

Don't even think about moving into Kingston. That place sucks big time. Town of Ulster is nice to live in as is Hurly or Woodstock.

Stone Ridge is nice, one of the pricier locales, but if money is not an object......

What's your lifestyle? Artist, musician.....Woodstock.....like to hike and climb......get close to Minnewaska State Park......like to take college courses or otherwise be in a college town.....New Paltz.....etc.

I am new to the posting forums and I had a question if anyone out there could help. My family and I are looking to move toward the Poughkeepsie/Saugerties area (we have family in Saugerties). Ideally, we would like to be half-way in between the two. Any suggestions? Schools are a consideration. I do love the area, but don't know enough about the smaller towns to even know where to start. Do people ever take the train from Saugerties (I believe that you have to cross the bridge to get to the station) into places like Poughkeepsie for a work commute? Thanks!

I just moved to Kingston from Beacon and I LOVE it! So for the person that said Kingston s--ks, I must say that I can't imagine why. It's historical and has some fantastic neighborhoods near the Rondout and Hudson that are loaded with character and charm. There's also a number of cultural activities available. New Paltz in a quaint, college community that someone might enjoy, and there's always Woodstock. Saugerties is also a great little community that I wouldn't hesitate to live in. As for schools...it's not a consideration for me so I have no input on that topic.
