If deciding to call this charming little city home means you are going to be looking for places to rent, there are a few things to keep in mind. While the mean temperature in July is 70, in January it's only 19 degrees. Needless to say, most moves take place in the better weather. Of course, if you are willing to brave the elements, deals can be had when the snow falls. Over recent years, the number of available units in relation to people looking has been about average. Taking a proactive approach with an apartment locator can yield results for you. A good credit report and funds for first and last months' rent and deposit will be necessary.
Gloversville may only have a little less than 16,000 residents, but that doesn't mean the entire town is exactly the same. Explore different sections and see where you want to land.
Myers Park: The south part of town is anchored by this large and beautiful park. The greens at nearby Pine Brook Golf Club add to the green space. The rental homes have been here a few years, and they are surrounded by mature landscaping with lots of trees.
Darling Field: This multi-use recreation area in the northeast section is surrounded by city landscapes on three sides and forest greens on one. Look for an apartment to rent in Gloversville in one of the small complexes nearby.
Lakes and rivers close by make it easy to enjoy water sports, and the hiking trails in the countryside have miles of places to explore waiting. A strong agricultural heritage is changing with the times, with organic food and great wines produced on the surrounding farms and vineyards like Altamont Vineyard Winery. You are close enough to the very big cities to make the occasional trip while living far enough away for a semi-rural lifestyle.
