Tucked up next to the Hudson River, Clarkstown is an upscale suburban dream, dotted with ball fields, lakes, picnic areas, playgrounds and even two bocce ball courts.
Great schools attract wealthy workers from surrounding areas. Residents commute to New York City and New Jersey and settle here for the family amenities, such as summer outdoor concerts in Clarkstown's many parks. As an added bonus, property taxes here are lower than Westchester County, which is right across the river.Subscribe to Money Magazine
