      Beautiful Monsey, NY is a Nature Lover's Delight!

      I have been living in Monsey, New York for 12 years. It is a great place to live and work! I feel like I am close to everything I enjoy. The lakes, the mountains, the parks, shopping, the beaches, and New York City.

      The scenery and the setting are beautiful, and the best part are the recreations from the Ramapo Mountains and the Palisades cliffs, overlooking the Hudson River. There is so much to do with the family, with miniature golf, playgrounds, movies, the Boulders baseball semi-professional games, bowling, and the Xcelerated Adventures so nearby! It's just a few minutes to Nanuet Mall, and all of the other stores and restaurant along Route 59.

      There are excellent job opportunities for residence of Rockland County, New York. We have so many dining options, from fun to fancy! The night life is great, too. Pubs and bars are open until 3 AM! Our beautiful ommunity has so much to offer people of all ages.
