I am a Newyorker, who made the mistake of moving south, for a better life - Please Helpppppppp!!!!!!!
My hubby and I have now decided to move back home, Upstate New York, we have a 10 year daughter who can't wait to get back home- so give us some advice. Where are the good neighborhoods in upstate new york 200 - 300 My hubby is looking to go to NYS Corrections or State Patrol and I have 20 years accounting, however, I am going into Nursing. I have about 1 year to go moving upstate to NY.

Things important to us
1. Good school system
2. A nice neighborhood where neighbors actually stick together - (that is not here in the south surprisingly)
3. A subdivision that has kids around my daughters age, she is the only 10 years old, and she wants to have friends -of course-but she is not desperate as she reminds me. LOL
4. An area not too far from NYC we want to be able to go into the city and then come home, to settle down.
5. What is the rental prices up that way

Please advise, we are extermely eager to move back and would like to start looking in some nice areas we hear about Hudson NY - Catskills area- let us know your thoughts

Maybe Orange County, which is the fastest growing county in the state. Good school districts there are Monroe-Woodbury, Cornwall, Pine Bush, Minisink Valley, Goshen and Warwick. Here's some information you might like:https://www.nystart.gov/publicweb/County.do?year=2007&county=Orange (broken link)

Hudson is in Columbia County, which is close to the Albany area too. Here's some information on that area:https://www.nystart.gov/publicweb/District.do?year=2007&county=COLUMBIA&district=101 300010000 (broken link)

I also posted some information under this topic for you too://www.city-data.com/forum/new-y...-counties.html

Orange County is good, but from almost everywhere in oc its atleast an hour to nyc with no traffic. stay away from monroe-woodbury as kiryas joel is growing 30 000 in one square mile and growing and its squeezing the taxpayers. chester is nice, stony point and suffern in rockland counties which are only 35 minutes away from manhattan. putnam county has some nice affordable areas too
