My place is 2 exits away on the Northway I87 to Saratoga Racetrack. It is also close to Saratoga State Park where they have 2 pools. It is near SPAC (Saratoga Performing Arts Center) where they have concerts and ballets. It's near several restaurants. It is also approx. 25 minutes from Broadway Saratoga Springs for shopping, boutiques, several cafe's, bistro's and coffee shops.
The neighborhood is genuinely quiet. Neighbors usually respect each others space.
You definitely need a car to get anywhere, it has a country setting.
