RYE, N.Y. -- SafeWise, a home and community security company, has ranked several Westchester towns among the top 50 safest in New York.
According to a blog on the company's website, it used data from the FBI’s "2011 Crime in the U.S. Report" along with results from its own investigation to compile the list.
Situated in the western part of Westchester County, Greenburgh is a safe town where volunteers dedicate themselves to arts and culture and value Mother Nature. It’s been five decades since the community’s volunteer driven Arts and Culture Committee was established, and it’s stronger than ever. With a mission to make the arts available to people of all ages and every economic background, the committee supports annual poetry competitions, takes great pride in displaying children’s art, and even hosts fun filled writing workshops for kids as young as nine.
Another resource you’ll benefit from as a Greenburgh resident is the Greenburgh Nature Center. The family-friendly, 33-acre nature preserve offers trails, a pond and gardens. It’s also provides a slew of programs, including an amazing assortment of adult classes. Need more to do? Greenburgh’s recreation department provides over 150 youth and adult programs, and boasts a 57 page recreation guide. If you’re interested in higher education, you’ll be happy to hear that seven colleges or universities are located within 10 miles of Greenburgh. Best yet, move to Greenburgh and you can brag that you reside in one of state’s safest cities.
