About Rockland County, New York
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 suburbia 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 family income stands at $86,134. In addition, it is designated as a Preserve America Community with approximately 30% of the county devoted to parkland.
