EPODUNK USER REVIEWS & BLOGS

Goshen, NY

Pros: nice, caring, warm people; decent school system with good teacher to student ratios; small town feel; beautiful scenery; has all 4 seasons; the people are from all over the area including NYC (five boroughs) Rockland County, NJ, and local Orange County towns; close enough to NYC to enjoy the wonders of NYC and also still commutable to earn a "Real Decent Wage"

Cons: not enough big Industry that will pay decent salaries so that you don't have to commute to NYC and Westchester; small town mentality can be stifling; not enough to do for young people AFTER they graduate college; need more opportunities to stimulate economic growth; I WILL PROBABLY NOT RETIRE HERE AFTER MY OWN KIDS GRADUATE COLLEGE; It's too expensive and too boring

This is a good place to raise your family

General info: Beautiful to look at in all 4 seasons
