CLARKSTOWN RANKED IN MONEY

MAGAZINE’S TOP 100 BEST PLACES TO LIVE

 

(July 17, 2008) – The most recent report released by Money Magazine ranked Clarkstown on the 100 Best Places to Live list.  Clarkstown, with approximately 83,000 residents, was ranked number 71 out of 100 with only three other New York cities placing. 

 

Money Magazine created the list using statistics from data provider OnBoard and consultant Bert Sperling of BestPlaces.net.  The list includes cities that have populations of 50,000 to 300,000 and ranked based on job growth, income increases, cost of living, housing affordability, school quality, arts and leisure options, safety, medical care, diversity and taxes. 

 

Supervisor Gromack said, “We are so proud of this wonderful honor.  Clarkstown has various recreational and social opportunities for children and families, excellent schools, an active 'Open Space' program, and a host of community and civic organizations that work to keep our town one of the best places to live.”

 

“I am also proud of the cooperation that exists between our residents and our town government.  By working together we have built a community where families flourish and where people and ideas come together in a constructive partnership,” said Gromack. 

 

Clarkstown has also consistently been rated among the top five ‘safest’ communities in the United States and in the last two years was rated second ‘safest’ (CQ Press).
