The Town of Bethlehem is a thriving modern-day suburban community that still retains a friendly, neighborly warmth reminiscent of days past.
Located on the banks of the Hudson River - just six miles from Albany, New York State's capital, Bethlehem lies at the crossroads of the Northeast. New York City, Boston and Montreal are just hours away, and the nearby Adirondack and Catskill areas offer world-class recreational activities throughout the year.
Bethlehem is noted for its superb school system, its town services, a prudent planned development and a wide variety of community organizations. Its unique blend of suburban neighborhoods, rural life and commercial enterprises make it a pleasant, attractive and enjoyable community for businesses and residents alike.
Incorporated in 1793, Bethlehem offers both a rich past and a bright progressive future.
