Wappingers Falls, NY


Suburban living at its best - 6/14/2013
My family has lived in the village for 4 generations, myself for 22 years before I had to move away for grad school (and I'm eager to move back!). I absolutely love it there. The main street in the village is beautiful, with little shops and the waterfall the town is named for right next to a great park and historic buildings. With the Culinary Institute so close by, many of the former students live in the village and surrounding areas resulting in great restaurants. Shopping is close and convenient. Weather is great, not too cold in winter and not too hot in summer; worst natural disaster you'll experience is a rare two feet of snow (which is quickly cleaned up off the streets) or an inch of water in the basement. Lots of trees and big yards for most houses. NYC is an easy and scenic hour and a half train ride away, down the banks of the hudson river.

As you can see, there is a town of wappinger and a separate village of wappingers falls (this is corroborated by the first paragraph on the village of wappingers falls page which describes the village as falling 2/3's into the town of wappinger and 1/3 into the town of poughkeepsie). People may call the town wappingers falls, but that is not the official name. In fact if you google "town of wappinger" you will see many more pages devoted to the town as separate from the village, as well as local organizations with the town of wappinger name, like the local little league. The discrepancy may come from the fact that the same post office serves both the village and the town (as well as other areas) but the post office is located in the village and therefore mail for the village and the town should be addressed to Wappingers Falls.
