CROTON-ON-HUDSON -

The best place to live in New York happens to be in the Hudson Valley.

Croton-on-Hudson was ranked the top community to live in New York, according to a study by the financial news and opinion site 24/7 Wall Street.

The site ranked the best place to live in every state.

It described Croton-on-Hudson as one of the safest communities in New York. Officials say there were just 48 violent crimes for every 100,000 village residents in 2017, about an eighth of the national violent crime rate of 383 per 100,000.

A wealthy suburb of Houston, West University Place ranks as the best city to live in both Texas and the United States.
