Pearl River Real Estate

Pearl River is located in Orangetown, south of Nanuet and west of Blauvelt. Billed “The Town of Friendly People” by its denizens, Pearl River is a hamlet near the New Jersey border. Commuters still run to catch the train at the old station near the post office, there’s a cannon in the little park adjoining the station (with a war memorial), and up on Central Avenue, there’s a big field with a bandstand. The annual Fourth of July fireworks show is legendary, and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade is said to be second in size only to the famous Manhattan parade.

For outdoor activities, check out Pilgrim Court Park (which has a play area) and Cherry Brook Park, which features tennis courts, and a walking path. Pearl River is a great destination for the arts; it’s home to the Rockland Community College Cultural Arts Theater and the Blue Hill Cultural Center. For those interested in Orangetown’s history, a visit to the Orangetown Historical Museum and Archives will be in order.  For dining, some popular options include Quinta Steakhouse, Louie’s On the Avenue, Kwan Thai, and Kumo Japanese Restaurant.
