As for Manhattan Beach, families who move to this area are community-oriented, outdoor-enthusiasts. In a way, it reminded me of Suffern. There are many lovely homes on tree-lined streets, a fine school district and places of worship. Where they have surfing, Suffern has hiking, biking, climbing, and kayaking. They put on afternoon concerts, as does Suffern. Manhattan Beach, I'm paraphrasing...
"with its rich past, exciting present and promising future, is primarily a residential community.
With its small-town living atmosphere, it will steal your heart, relax your mind.
You can certainly say the same for Suffern!
