if assumptions could fly, airliners.net would be the world's busiest airport
I live 15 minutes from Nyack and I've driven through it many, many times. Honestly, I fail to see what makes Nyack in particular so special. It's just like all of the other suburban towns around it right near the border of New York and New Jersey.

Quoting SW733 (Reply 12): Somebody tell me I'm not seeing that...
My thoughts exactly...who would recommend a move to El Paso? Satan?
The category was "Sunniest Places". Seeing as how El Paso is in that desert part of Western Texas, I have to imagine they see a lot of sun.

That category was "Best commuter towns". I presume the journalists who wrote this article anaylized several cities and found from a commuter standpoint Nyack is a great city for commuting to NYC.
I'm not saying I agree or disagree with these anaylsis, but some of these questions could be answered by simply looking at the category.
I'm just surprised cities like Honolulu and Miami didn't place in any of these categories.

Quoting STLGph (Reply 8): scenic drives to Oakland to the west and Reno to the east?
The scenic drive to the east towards Reno doesn't start until you pass through Auburn, which is pushing it. As for the scenic drive to the west towards San Francisco, well that never really begins, because there is no useful scenery for the most part.
My only guess could be the plethora of biking and walking trails along the Sacramento and American Rivers.
