Bordering both the City of Albany and miles of Hudson River shoreline, this active community is accessible to every corner of the Capital Region, along with easy access to New York City, Boston and Montreal!

The town of Bethlehem is ranked one of America's most desirable communities, and that might be due to its beautiful Elm Avenue Park. It is the town's largest park and during the summer, most of the town's people can be found there. The three indoor swimming pools, playground, basketball and tennis courts might have something to do with it!

Finding a place to shop is never a problem. If you find your way over to Delaware plaza you can find yourself shopping at 30 locally owned stores and delicious restaurants.
