Duanesburg is a community with a geographic area of about 60 square miles and many spectacular views of the Mohawk Valley, Schoharie Valley and the Helderbergs.

The community has a friendly, rural atmosphere and a population of approximately 5,000 with active civic organizations and volunteer fire companies.

Located on Route 20, some 30 minutes west of Albany, it is within easy reach of the New York State Thruway and Interstate 88. There are three primary population centers—Duanesburg, Delanson and Quaker Street.

The area has much to offer. There is a town park with facilities for tennis, basketball and softball, two lakes suitable for small watercraft, antique shops and restaurants, a close proximity to Rotterdam, Colonie and Crossgates Malls and a small airport for skydiving enthusiasts. The district is also close to major employers such as General Electric and the New York State Offices—both of which provide employment to many district residents.

Higher educational opportunities are available at nearby colleges, such as the State University at Albany, the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), Russell Sage College, Union College, Siena College, Skidmore College, The College of St. Rose, Hudson Valley Community College, Schenectady Community College, and SUNY Cobleskill.
