"Shopping in Putnam Valley"

Let me begin by saying that I do not believe most people move to Putnam Valley for the shopping. Putnam Valley is just over the Westchester County border but there's a world of difference in the feel of the town. You can enjoy the rural feeling you get while winding down the country roads and yet be only minutes from the hustle and bustle of Rt.6 where you will find the Cortlandt Town Center, Jefferson Valley Mall etc. Putnam Valley does offer the essentials including the small strip mall with a bagel shop,beauty salon, tanning salon,dance academy and other shops all next to a medical building, post office, deli & bank. One could also not neglect to mention the Putnam Valley Market (one of my favorites) with their own pizza ovens and freshly made dailly specials. So as you can see Putnam Valley is a unique town where people come to live and enjoy that peaceful hometown feeling and still be only minutes away from all of the suburban amenities like shopping centers, restaurants, movie theatres, golf courses etc.

"Putnam Valley School District"

A supportive community with extensive parental involvement,an active PTA/PTSA, the Putnam Valley Central School District supports academic excellence and well-rounded extra curricular programs. The districts three schools serve 2000 students and its 300 teachers and staff members are known for their education, expertise and commitment to the students. PV boasts a brand new state-of-the-art high school, wireless internet access in all classrooms and buildings and a one to one laptop program for all students ( I believe from 5th grade & up they receive their own laptop for use during the school year). The districts award winning technology program is leading the way through the 21st century & giving students cutting edge training in new areas of study for the future. You can always check out their website for further info. on the schools, test scores etc.
