(New City, NY) - The most recent report released by Money Magazine again ranked Clarkstown on the 100 Best Places to Live list.  Clarkstown, with approximately 83,000 residents, was ranked number 41 out of 100 with only four other New York cities placing.  Clarkstown was previously ranked number 71 in 2008.

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