Suffern Real Estate

Suffern is a village in the Town of Ramapo, located north of the State of New Jersey, east of Hillburn, south of Montebello and west of Airmont.

The village of Suffern, situated in the western part, near the border with Orange County and New Jersey, has an old-timey feel, with plenty of small shops, old buildings, and little side streets. It’s the place where the Avon cosmetics company was born (it was originally called The California Perfume Company), and the firm is in the midst of expanding to stay at its original site right in the middle of town. Here’s where you’ll find the only old movie theater still in operation in Rockland. The Lafayette Theater presents films without intermission and advertisements, and every Friday and Saturday, there’s live music in the balcony from a mighty Wurlitzer organ!

Suffern’s old-fashioned charm is a little deceptive, because it’s also a major commuter transportation hub. The intersection of the NY State Thruway with Routes 17 and 287 is located here, and the Suffern train station is one of the major stops on the rail line that runs toward the Jersey crossings to mid-town and downtown Manhattan. Other stops for train-lovers are Sloatsburg, Spring Valley, Nanuet, and Pearl River.

Suffern is home to the Suffern Village Museum, Suffern Railroad Museum, Europa Masters Art Gallery, The Cultural Arts Center at SUNY Rockland Community College, The Spook Rock Golf Course. The village hosts a popular famers market on Saturdays for fruits, vegetables, natural meats, and home-made condiments.
