Middletown: A Diverse Community

The best thing about living in Middletown is the diversity and the easy access to the NYC boroughs. We have public transportation but it's best to own your own car. It usually takes me an hour to get into NYC, but I love that I can visit monthly and enjoy different events that Middletown does not offer. We also have easy access to New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

It is very expensive to live here, but it is a beautiful area and perfect for raising kids. Living in Middletown is perfect because it offers a close-knit community. The neighbors are very welcoming. We have very good schools including Science Technology programs in the high schools. We also have newer athletic facilities. Overall, everything looks clean and new here.

We have a lot of restaurants to choose from including some of my favorites: Mix N Mac which offers a variety of pasta dishes, fried foods, and different cheese sauces. We have restaurants that will suit everyone's taste buds.
