New City NY is located at the heart of Clarkstown, and the heart of Rockland County. It serves as both the town seat of Clarkstown, and the county seat of Rockland County.
The downtown area of New City attracts many workers and visitors every day. There has been some revitalization efforts going on in the downtown area to make it more attractive as a center of shopping and entertainment. However, the downtown area is a combination of strip malls, which makes it hard to build up nightlife or a charming vibe.
With the quaint riverfront villages of Nyack and Piermont competing for dining and entertainment, and the large Palisades Mall competing for shopping, New City is a harder sell as a vibrant district. Both Nyack and the Palisades Mall are only a few minutes drive away.
