With a population of 16,000, Pearl River, New York offers all of the pastoral beauty of the countryside while also being accessible to the big city. Pearl River has a rich historic background that traces its way back to the Revolutionary War. The city allegedly got its name when a town resident found small pearls in mussels that thrived in the river. With its quaint river villages, beautiful historic sites, and one of the world’s most stunning river valleys, more and more families are choosing Pearl River as the community in which to raise their family and educate their children. In 2011, CNNMoney.com ranked Pearl River 78th on its annual “100 Best Places to Live” list. Pearl River, in Rockland County is only twenty miles north of New York City. New York City’s five boroughs are home to some of the world’s most recognizable, cherished landmarks and attractions. From Times Square and Central Park, to the Empire State Building and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the island of Manhattan packs more famous icons into one compact area than any other place on earth; and that’s to say nothing of the city’s four other boroughs—The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island—each of which contains its own roster of must-see destinations.
An excellent competitive compensation package will be offered to the selected candidate.
