"Going down and nothing to do."

The village is a mess high crime and low level the town is nice, building huge home's but they still have to go to school with the village. Junior and Sr. High is awful. There is nothing to do. Unless you live to go to a park. Period. No night life. Just restaurants. Nothing to do no where to go. Whoever is writing the other reviews is the same person copy cut and pasted from Wikipedia or they're born locals how do nothing and will become nothing. Heroin is ramp ted. You're good if your a good ole boy. It was a great place to raise kids, but no more. To far from NY a commuters night mare. Put my time in 25 yrs leaving and won't miss it.

"Town of Wappingers Falls, NY"

First of all, people think the Village is called 'Wappingers Falls' and the Town is 'Wappinger.' That is WRONG!!!!! Town and Village are Wappingers Falls. I have lived here for 40 years. Wappingers Falls is a nice and calm town. The biggest, most popular road in WF is NY Route 9. Second to that is Dutchess County Road 93 (Myers Corners Road.) Since 2000, WF had a 10% increase in population. People who love nature and watching seasons change, WF is the place for you! Many great restaurants!
Pros
  • Good Schools
  • Shopping nearby
  • Things to do
  • Good restaurants
  • Community spirit and friendliness
  • Country Players performance group

"A Village with all the Amenities"

Wappingers Falls is a village within the town of Wappinger. Actually, half the village is in Wappinger, and half of it is in the neighboring town of Poughkeepsie. There is only one post office for both, though, which means that Wappingers Falls, Wappinger, and parts of Poughkeepsie, Lagrange, Fishkill and East Fishkill are all –according to their zip code – located in Wappinger Falls. This makes the mail system interesting, and means you should probably invest in a GPS if you’re going to spend time here.

Wappingers Falls is a little over one square mile and has a population of about 5500 people. It is between the Newburgh- Beacon and Mid-Hudson Bridges, east of the Hudson River. There is an historic district, where you’ll find Mesier Park and Homestead, circa 1891. There is quite a bit of history here; the beautiful stone library, Grinnell, is the 6th oldest in New York State.

The schools here are good, and there are quite a few. There are 10 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, 2 high schools, and one alternative high school. The Randolph School, a very well-regarded alternative school for ages 3 to 10, is located here as well.

The recreation department is active, offering summer camps and youth art programs, and there are many parks from which to choose. There is an award-winning community theater; recent plays have included My FThe lion in Winter, Godspell, and somehow, the full Monty.

Wappingers Falls has restaurants, bars, gyms, and there is a $3 movie theater ($2 on Tuesdays!) at the Short Hills Mall just north in Poughkeepsie, which is another active town. Those looking to settle in the Hudson Valley, and who would find themselves going stir-crazy in a more rural setting, may find this village just what the doctor ordered.
