"A whole lot of nothing"

Very little of Stissing Mountain Road runs through the Town of Milan; it carries into Pine Plains where it heads towards the village. In the end, it wouldn't matter if you took a 200-foot slice of this road or the whole extent: there's nothing here.

I cannot say that there is much neighborhood spirit here at all because I only count about a dozen houses, and this road's almost 2 miles long. As you might then expect, there is a lot of open land here (much of it appears to be farmland) and there are quite a lot of trees around as well. It's named for Stissing Mountain in Pine Plains, which stands to the south of this road, but isn't the reason why there are so few homes here.

You'll not find many other places as green, pristine, and undisturbed as this one. Even the farmland looks nice. Finding a place to live here, however, will be your problem. There are no homes in the Milan section of this road; on the Pine Plains reach, the farm is expensive land as one would figure but the other houses on Stissing Mountain Road are downright inexpensive, a little bit to my surprise. Almost all of the home values are under $200,000 -- many of them are modest, which would explain why, but this is a little unlike rural roads around here which tend to have more expensive housing. It's that there are just so few of the that getting to take advantage of the cost wouldn't be easy.

Towards the east end, you've got the village of Pine Plains, which does have a few stores and restaurants, along with schools. Don't kid yourself into thinking there's much to do there, however. You can do some food shopping, take your kids to the park (or go hiking up Stissing Mountain), or perhaps get a bite to eat, but little else.

There's no way this isn't a safe area, but it is one lacking in things to do which don't involve outdoor recreation. It's a road that also lacks places to live, which in itself is a problem. You surely won't be bothered too much around here, if that's your goal.
