About the area

Congers, a small hamlet in Clarkstown, Rockland County, is, “A really good place where the people are friendly and embracing. It’s a friendly community, diverse and interesting, and mostly family centered.”, as described by a Congers resident. Despite its proximity to New York City, major highways and megamalls, one lure of the hamlet is that in many ways, it hasn’t changed much from its early days, when the West Shore Railroad defined the center of town and most residents lived within walking distance of it. The northeastern part of the hamlet has one of the largest major farms close to New York City, the Davies Farm, which has been used as a setting in many movies, including “Riding in Cars with Boys.” For recreation, Congers’ residents can fish, swim and play tennis, baseball, basketball and boccie at the 180-acre Congers Lake Memorial Park. A skateboarding area and a hockey rink were also added in the early 2000s. There are also ball fields at the three-and-a-half acre Hemlock Park and six-acre Kings Park, which also includes a basketball court, playground and two ponds. Residents can also use the town’s facilities, including its main recreation site, Zukor Park, and Germonds Park, the town pool facility. Congers manages to retain a taste of the past and yet changes with the times.
