Putnam ValleyPutnam Valley

Putnam valley is a town located southwest of Putnam County and is located northeast of New York City. This is a small town which calls itself the ‘Town of Lakes’ and had a population of 11,809 during the 2010 census.

History
It was in 1697 that Adolph Philipse was granted the Highland Patent. The Schulman family was one of the first settlers here in 1740. The Smith property, which was the oldest house in Putnam Valley was sold to the Bryant family who renamed the pond and nearby hill Bryant Pond and Bryant Hill respectively.
It was in 1839 that Putnam Valley was incorporated as the town of Quincy and was separated from the town of Philipstown to be named its present name. A small part of Carmel was added to Putnam Valley in 1861.

Things to do
Putnam Valley is the right place to go if you are looking for some peace and quiet in the midst of vast land, all within commutable distance from Manhattan. It is home to Fahnestock State Park and California Hill State Park and various lakes and ponds.
The most beautiful pond is Lake Oscawana where you can go swimming, boating, kayaking, etc. or just go relaxing on your deck to watch parades of duck and geese swim by. You can hike to your heart’s content on a part of the Fahnestock State park or go picnicking here.

Emergency contact numbers
Residents here send their children to the highly rated Putnam Valley School District with great park and recreational facilities. Putnam Valley is a pretty safe area, but just in case, you can call 845-225-4300 or 911 for emergencies and 845-526-2879 for non-emergencies.
This is the perfect place for retirees looking for a nice and relaxing lifestyle without the headaches of traffic and chaos of suburban areas. In case things get too quiet here, you can always go to neighboring towns to explore, so you never are far away from civilization!
