Where in NY do you live?

I'm looking for a nice small town to move in, but I have to stay within New York State. Maybe not very small, but where we can have a house that actually has a yard.

I'm in a suburb near Albany. It's nice here.

I'm from Jamestown, in the SW part of the state. Chautauqua county has some gorgeous places to live.

It depends on where you are looking to work and how far you want to travel. I'm on the Niskayuna/It which is a 20-25 minute commute to the Albany area, a little longer with traffic. Clifton Park, Guilderland, and Latham are also great areas. If you want a little more land and space, Vooresville, Brunswick and the East and North Greenbush areas, Nassau are nice. The school districts are all very good here but some larger and with a little more opportunity for college course offerings than others, but many of the smaller districts participate with a college prep program where you actually graduate high school with your associates. I would avoid the inner city areas such as downtown Albany, Schenectady, and Troy. Albany High has an excellant academic reputation but the area is a little rough. Troy and Schenectady don't have much to offer. They've done some revitalization move there unless I was going to send my kids to private schools. If you go a little north of where I live, Saratoga Springs and Ballston Spa are beautiful areas.

Thank you. What about middletown? Do you know anything about the town?
