Does anyone live near Ft. Drum?

We are moving there soon due to my husband's new assignment and we will be buying a house there. I don't know a lot about the area, though, so I am wondering if anyone knows what areas are nice and what to avoid. The house we really like is in Brownville and my husband is flying up there to check out that house and a few others.

 I've never been. Have you tried looking for FB pages? The base we are at has very helpful "wives" and "moms" pages so maybe they have one too. Good luck :-)

Carthage (IMO) is the best area close to post to buy a house. However I highly suggest you spend a few month the area before you buy to get a feel for the area. Brownville is like 30 min away which during winter lake effect snow makes it about 45 minutes away

Anything under an hour is fine with my husband. He drives about thirty minutes to work now because he does not like to live too close to post.

While I know it would be ideal to spend a few months there first, I think it would be a painful hassle, ha! We have three young children so moving is a pain and I doubt we would be able to find a place that would let us lease for just a few months.

We used to live there.We looked at buying but are so glad we didn't. We were only there two years and we never want to go back. Brownsville isn't bad but I really think you should get to know the area before making a purchase.
