Say “Goodbye!” to Metropolis and “Hello!” to a simple, natural, and countrified lifestyle.  If you are looking to live in a place where you can escape the frantic pace of everyday life, than look no further than Montgomery County.

Located in the far west of the Capital District, but still a mere 30-50 minute commute from the Greater Metropolitan area of Albany, Montgomery County fosters a strong sense of community, where neighbors are your friends, and where residents rally around each other.

Centered in the historic Mohawk Valley, and divided by the humbling Mohawk River, the picturesque scenery of Montgomery county is some of the best the Capital Region has to offer.  The typical view of Montgomery county is a panoramic glimpse of lush rolling hills beneath towering mountains, a wide open sky dotted by the stars, and quaint villages and farms visible in the distance.

The City of Amsterdam

Amsterdam, NY

Located on the eastern edge of Montgomery County, you will find yourself in the historic City of Amsterdam, home to more than 18,000 people!  

Being the only chartered city in the county, Amsterdam was the “postcard”community for the Industrial Age, and more millionaires per capita than anywhere else in New York State called the Rug City home.  Amsterdam was built from the fabulous architecture of the Art-Deco era, and is loaded with different Mansions, Victorians, Colonials, and more!

No need to keep looking, you can find the home of your dreams right here in Amsterdam!
