"Find Your New Home in Wonderful Historical Community of Schuylerville!"

Schuylerville, a Hudson River town located in Saratoga County, NY is a lovely, lively little town that's rich in American history (it was the site of the historical Battle of Saratoga, as well as was once known as “Fort Saratoga” by the Dutch who settled here, and there are other links to the war as well), fantastic community events (like the Turning Point Parade in summer), wonderful schools (the outstanding Schuylerville Central School District) and a great park system.

For instance, Schuylder's Canal Park is where the British first surrendered to the American troops during the Revolutionary War, and is situated upon the Champlain Canal and is where you can enjoy many community events such as the Turning Point Parade (August) as well as many other events that take place all year long. There's also the Lock 5 Champlain Canal Park (observe boats and take a ride on a canal boat yourself), Village Beach (where you can catch a free concert and go swimming), Saratoga National Historical Park (the site of two of the most horrific battles of the Revolutionary War), Stark's Knob (named in honor of General John Stark of the Revolutionary War, where you can still find prehistoric ocean fossils of creatures that once lived in the sea), and Hudson's Crossing Bi-County Park, where you can visit the brand-new park for children, take your boat out from the dock, hike, and soon enjoy an Envrionmental Center. There's also the Youth Center, which offers programs to teens and young children which can keep kids socializing and busy in a safe environment, to explore their interests with people who care about their futures. For more historical locations, visit the Saratoga Monument and the Schuyler house (the prominent family from whom the town got its name).

Aside from excellent parks and schools (Schuylerville is one of the best Central School Districts in the area), there's many quaint shops and wonderful restaurants in town to choose from. For instance, there's Old Saratoga Books (94 Broad St.), a small yet wonderful used & rare bookstore, and Saratoga Apples Inc. (no, it has nothing to do with the computer company; this is a Pick-Your-Own Apple Farm and Produce Center, where your kids---and you---can enjoy getting fresh fruit and vegetables galore, munch on yummy cider donuts, and pick a bountiful amount of delicious, juicy organic apples right from the trees (a great way to celebrate the coming of Fall either by yourself, with friends, or with your family). There's other stores as well, like the Thrift Shop on Broad St. and the Antique Store on Milton Ave.; there's also Olde Saratoga Bike & Boards, the Dwell Gift Shop, Schuyler Sweets, the Badger Cigar Den, Stewart's Shop, Cumberland Farms grocery, and more! If you're hungry, enjoy a fantastic variety of restaurants to choose from, such as: Schuylerville Pizza & Pasta, Mac's Diner, Olde Saratoga Cafe & Bakery, American Legion, Amigos Cantina, Kitchen at the Dove Gate Inn, Whipple City Pizza, a Subway, and more!

More good news about Schuylerville: the unemployment rate is less than the US average, which is 8.60% (Schuylerville's is 6.10%), the cost of living is also under the US average (98.6%), a pretty safe crime rate (75 out of 100, where 100 is the safest). You can find great medical care in nearby Saratoga Springs (the Saratoga Hospital is a wonderful place to get help, whatever your needs), and the Greenwhich Family Health Center in Greenwhich, CT is not far away by car as well. You can feel safe about bringing your kids to Imagination Home Day Care and Baby Chick Day Care Home, both in Schuylerville, and while they're in daycare, visit the parks or go swimming at the local YMCA. You can pump up with exercise at the Saratoga Health and Wellness in Saratoga Springs, or Global Fitness in nearby Gansevoort (also of Saratoga County, NY). Homes are very affordable with a median sales price at $130,000.

Whatever your needs, you'll be sure to find them in Schuylerville, NY: where your money is well spent, for everyone in your family will be sure to benefit from it, one way or another!
