Cornwall Real Estate

Living in Cornwall, NY

Named for its fertile land and river meadows similar to that of Cornwall, England, Cornwall was originally a summer resort because of its river and mountain views, scenic trails, and fresh air. Today, it serves as a commuter town to New York City, and also serves as a health retreat away from New York City, offering plenty of hiking, rowing, swimming, fishing, hunting, and biking.
