Rockland County offers an attractive alternative for homebuyers seeking top value for their dollar in the New York Metro Area.
Offering a bigger bang for the buck than Westchester County, its neighbor across the Hudson, Rockland is just 30 miles north of New York City, and getting to Manhattan, Westchester and Connecticut and beyond is easier than ever with the construction of the New Tappan Zee Bridge.
Known for its quaint villages, like the historic, artsy and Victorian Nyack and Piermont, Rockland offers spectacular river views and outdoor recreation. With roughly 32,000 acres of untouched parklands, Rockland features sparkling lakes and streams and miles of marked trails that lead to the foothills of the Ramapo Mountains.
There are all kinds of recreational opportunities: swimming and fishing, hiking and boating, camping, horseback riding, historic house tours. There are golf and tennis in Spring and Summer, as well as opportunities for ice skating, sledding, and cross-country skiing in Winter. And every Fall there is a beautiful foliage display that draws “leaf peepers” from around the New York metro area.
