An Expat Talks about Living in
Pelham, New York
What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?
What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?
This is a town where families
live. If it is family related the kids will probably meet friends at school and then the parents as well. However, I don't think Pelham would be classified as a singles hangout. There are restaurants and a few bars.
