"Quiet, Peaceful and a great diner!"

North East is, as the name implies, on the Northeastern side of Dutchess County, and it really feels like it's way out there. You can drive through North East and not even really realize there's a little town here. It's mostly farmland, and there isn't a ton to do or entertain, but there are still a few charms.

First, it is a peaceful place. Very quiet, very much in tune with the simplicities of nature. It's a welcome feeling some days, but at the same time I think it would drive me nuts if I was living here. There aren't a whole lot of places to get a drink or have a bit of fun. If you live in North East, you're going to have to make your own fun.

Because of the low population and lack of very much to do, North East is pretty safe, and if you like a farming lifestyle it could be a great place to raise kids, though you'll have to drive your kids a ways to find great education. Fortunately, it's just North of Amenia, which is a more fun community, so you'll at least have something to do if you drive down there.

One thing I would like to mention, and it's really my main experience with North East, is the Round Tuit Restaurant, which is right nearby. It's just a basic, old fashioned diner, but the food has been very good when I visited, and after years in big cities where at best you get a phony reproduction it was nice to get the real deal. Definitely worth checking out if you're driving through.
  • Peace and Quiet
  • Safe
  • Round Tuit Restaurant is excellent
  • Not much to do
  • Need to drive to nearby towns to find something to do
