"Come to Warwick to Celebrate Autumn and an Awesome Community!"

The suburban comfort that is so enjoyed in Warwick, was forged in the fires of the Revolution. The Revolutionary War culminated in egalitarian society in Warwick, and that heritage lives on in the hearts of Warwick's citizens. The Iron that blocked the British Ships was forged here in 1778.

Today, Warwick (of Orange County) is all about apples and retirement: a good thing, too, because there is a hospital that provides 'round the clock care for the infirm, as well as Applefest (where tender apples appreciators of yore can revel in all kinds of applely goodness. (At least 30,000 come each year to this apple lovers' magnet! All in all, it's critically acclaimed family fun.) Not to mention the nearby Oktoberfest where Grammy Award-winning Polka Artist Jimmy Sturr and his Orchestra do their level polka best. It may be a problem for those not on the ball that the town of Warwick also contains the Village of Warwick (of the same name), but the locals like to think of the situation like one of those little Russian dolls, only carved out of apples.

Warwick is very affordable with a home going for around $297,500 (the median sales price). The population is around 32,065 and counting. Warwick Valley Central School District is a great school system, and there are also a few private schools (including St. Stephen, St. Edward School, Calvary Christian Academy, and Good Shepherd Lutheren Pre-School.

Living in Warwick has some great benefits like Senior Housing and Medical Care (St. Anthony Community Hospital---which provides around the clock EMS). There's also great child care and several to choose from, several gyms, and while the closest train station is in Croton, it's only an hour and a half by car to NYC, and by NJ Transit Bus 197, 2 and a half hours. The crime rate is average so Warwick is a very safe place to live in and raise a family. They have an excellent community center, wonderful parades, and of course the Applefest and Oktober Fest; nearby Tuxedo also hosts the New York Rennaisance Faire and, in October on the same grounds, one can get scared silly at The Forest of Fear. Wisner Public Library offers wonderful programs like Evening Book Discussions, Teen Creative Writing Workshops, a Library Chess Group, and more. There's 2 parks in Warwick as well: Warwick town Park and Union Corner Park, and both offer plenty of recreational activities which can be fun for anyone, as well as the whole family!

There's plenty of restaurants such as American Quisine, Claude's Artisan Bakery & Dessert Cafe (French), Lai Shun, Hunan Garden, Harvest Restaurant and Brew Pub at Pennings, Panini Deli as well as others. After a great meal, you can relax and catch the newest Flick outside under the stars at Warwick's Drive-In Movie Theater. After the movie, you may wish to hit the Carvel Ice Cream Bakery or Dairy Queen. There's several antique stores in Warwick as well as Ye Olde Warwick Book Shoppe, Marilyn's Consignment Boutique, Shoprite Supermarket, Price Chopper, Dock's Fine Woodcrafts, and several others.

So, Warwick sounds pretty great, right? After visiting, you might find you may not want to leave!
