We want to live among people who value family, arts and experience over materialistic goals. We would be starting over so we are looking for a welcoming place where it is easy to make friends. We have 2 very young children (infant + toddler) so access to alternative schooling that is affordable would need to be considered as well.

We are very much in the minority where we are now and would like to change that.

Ideally it would be within 2 hours of NYC and Fairfield County CT since that is where our families are located.

New Paltz has been mentioned by friends. We would like feedback about that area and any other suggestions that fit our description as well. Thanks so much!
We just moved from FL to NY last year! Relocated from just north of Tampa I live in Rensselaer, which is near Albany NY and where I am, it's not bad at all, of course, anywhere you go, there's bad places not too far away. My dad lives in Waterford, which is about 15 minutesnorth of me and it's a very saef town, and they have this great farmer's market on the weekends that I love! I have not met any crunchy moms here yet though... I don't really know where to look to be honest which is why I joined this website today. Good luck to you!

Hi, I would second New Paltz. But the truth is a lot of towns upstate fit your description (there is Woodstock, Saugerties, Red Hook, Millerton, Beacon...). And don't rule out NYC altogether! Unless you are hoping to live in a more rural area, of course. But there are plenty of people who fit the description of who you are hoping to meet/live amongst.
