Geography[edit]

New City is located at 41°8′44″N 73°59′42″W / 41.14556°N 73.99500°W / 41.14556; -73.99500 (41.145495, −73.994901).[4]

New City is accessible from major Rockland arteries providing rapid access to Bergen County, New Jersey, Westchester County, New York, Manhattan, and the Bronx in New York City.

New City has experienced rapid development, yielding a wealthy stable tax base. Despite booming development, many of its residential areas have remained tranquil and comprise wooded acres, winding roads, stone walls, trees, lakes, and streams. While undeveloped land for development is scarce, a few small farms still dot the landscape now shared with golf courses, homes, and businesses. New City Elementary School is located in the area.
