Should I buy a home in Walden, NY?

My husband and I were going to try to buy a home in Warwick but I think we are going to be priced out of that area (and possibly Monroe/Goshen/Cornwall) because of the high property taxes. We love some of the home styles in Walden, and we can get more for our budget there.

So, here is what I know:
  • Taxes are not as high as the aforementioned towns
  • Valley Central middle and high schools are good (not sure about Walden Elementary)
  • Town is a little "grittier" than some others in the county
  • Montgomery (nearby) has some good restaurants
  • A Hannaford is being built in Walden
Is there anything else you can tell me (good or bad) about living in Walden that might be important before considering a home purchase there?

I've lived here for thirty years, and it is a little grittier, but there has been a spate of new housing with new and less gritty people.  Its a good town for ordinary people who aren't looking to flash social status, although there are outlets for that too.  My daughter went to school here and it was a decent system.
The taxes are good and the streets are always cleared so the snow won't slow you down.
We live just outside the actual village, near the river.  Its been a pleasant time for us.

I see nothing wrong with Walden should you decide to invest on a property there.
