When I first decided to move to New York, after getting a job there, I was under the impression that the entire state was very urban, sprawling with cities like the famous New York City. As someone from the Midwest, this made my stomach hurt. Just thinking about it made me break out in a sweat. Then I found Coram.

Living in Coram is so like living in the Midwest that I hardly have any homesickness at all. There are wide open areas, historic landmarks for me to check out, and lots of natural parks for me to explore nature in. The people aren't quite as friendly as they are back home, but I've managed to make a fair few friends already.

The best areas in Coram to hang out if you don't feel like taking a walk in nature have got to be Coram Country Lanes, where you can get some grub and bowl, and our High Velocity Paintball course. Good times!
