Ramapo Makes "Best Places to Live" List

The Town of Ramapo has once again been ranked in the top 100 Best Places to Live in America by CNN Money Magazine.

The 2012 rankings were announced earlier this week, with Ramapo taking the 59th spot.

The magazine ranked communities nationally with populations between 50,000 and 300,000.

“It is wonderful to once again be named by Money Magazine as one of the best places to live in the United States,” said Supervisor St. Lawrence.

“With a wide range of recreational, social, and cultural programs and amenities, the Town of Ramapo has something for everyone.”

“Whether it is through our award-winning parks, state-of-the-art baseball stadium and sports facilities, countless programs for seniors and children, or our extensive open space program, we consistently strive to make the Town of Ramapo an even better place to live and raise a family,” he added. “I am particularly proud of the fact that our diverse and progressive town is one of only four communities in the entire State of New York to be listed among CNN Money Magazine’s Best Places to Live in America.”

Ramapo is not new to CNN Money Magazine’s listings.

In 2003, Ramapo was listed as the 2nd Best Town to Live in on the East Coast; in 2006, Ramapo was listed as the 49th Best Place to Live in America; and in 2010, Ramapo was listed as the 88th Best Place to Live in America.
