About Rockland

Located in the southeastern part of New York State—just 15 miles northwest of the George Washington Bridge, Rockland County is a major crossroads with easy access to interstate highways and all tri-state airports

Although small in size, its proximity to Manhattan and appeal of surburbia helped transform the county to its present-day metropolitan ambiance.

Nationally ranked in the Top 10 on the list of highest-income counties by median household income, Rockland's current median familiy income stands at $82,534. In addition, it is designated as a Preserve America Community wth approximately 30% of the county devoted to parkland.
