Nyack is really a horrible place to live. And as a real estate broker and a leader in the local community, I believe it’s my duty to give the public the right impression of this disgusting locale. With that said, following (in no particular order) is my list of 8 reasons why no one should ever considering a move to the village. 


  1. You are right on the Hudson River. You are totally going to hate the views. As we know River-views are Just Horrible for calming the soul. Don’t Walk Down to the Pier Near Memorial Park. The Beautiful Views are Bound to Set You off!  But if you really want to be annoyed, go for an afternoon cruise via the Nyack Boat Charter. The Fresh Air and watching the way the sun makes the waves twinkle... Ugh!  It’s really Just Awful!

  2. There are Way too Many Restaurants to Choose From. No matter what cuisine you’re trying to avoid, you’ll find it in Nyack. With the Varying Options for Food and Fare, Nyack is Just Horrible for Your Waistline!  You can take in calories at almost every turn!  And it’s not limited to just food. No!  Nyack has some of the most ridiculous sweets imaginable. Hudson House, Didier Dumas and the Pie Lady... Forget about it!

  3. With all the Various Shops and Boutiques, You’re Bound to Go Broke!  Clothes, Antiques, Chocolate, Cheese,  Glasses.... You Name it!  You can find it in Nyack... and lose track of what’s in you wallet at the same time. You can literally shop all day going from Main Street to Broadway... and don’t forget the side streets like South Franklin. Damaging I tell you!

  4. Living in Nyack Promotes a Healthier Lifestyle. I don’t know about you, but it’s totally one of those things I’m avoiding. Walking, Biking, Biking... Biking. Ugh!  It’s Horrible! Especially biking up to Hook Mountain/Nyack Beach State Park. Plus you get more of that horrible Hudson River. Enough Already!  Oh!!!  And did I mention yoga!  Namaste at every freaking turn!  Hot, Aerial, Vinyasa. That on top of Boot Camp and CrossFit. Nyack is to be avoided at all costs!

  5. Nyackers tend to be BIG on community and making everyone feel welcomed and included. You can’t walk down the block without someone greeting you with a smile. Why is Everyone in Nyack so happy?  And stick around long enough... you’ll think you’re in an Episode of Cheers “Where Everybody Knows your Name”. It really is terrible I tell you!

  6. How about those weekend street fairs and the Thursday farmer’s market? There is always something going on in Nyack. And soon there will be that Annual Art Walk everyone is talking about. Yes, more walking, shopping and now toss in visual stimulation. Who needs it?  There are galleries for days and now a designated historic museum... The Hopper House, with its Hopper-esque  quaintness and it’s beautiful garden.  It’s just too much to take. 

  7. Aside from visual arts, there’s also music and dancing. You’ve got Maureen’s Jazz Cellar and live music, fattening Mexican food and an outrageous bar at Casa. My absolute least favorite there is their monthly drink and drums. It’s horrible how much that event pulls me in and makes me dance. Don’t go!  If you do, you’re bound to come back. 

  8. Another pocket killer are all the places for pampering. Who wants to feel pretty?  You have hair salons, nail salons, eyelash extensions, massages!  There are even several boutique barbershops for men!!!  Enough Already!   In my assessment, Nyack may just make you live longer.  And it’s super close to NYC and Tarrytown is just over the bridge. 


I hope my little pointers have given you a real look at what you’re in for should you have ever thought to consider moving to Nyack. If you are interested in a personal tour of the “why nots”, and don’t live in the area (as if my list above wasn’t enough) Nyack now also has this boutique hotel, Time Nyack. It’s super uncool!  Book a room there and give R2M Realty a Call. My team is bound to convince you if I haven’t already.
