Nanuet is a hamlet, in the Town of Clarkstown Rockland County, New York, United States located north of Pearl River; south of New City; east of Spring Valley and west of West Nyack. Nanuet is 19 miles north of Manhattan, and 2 miles north of the New Jersey border. It has one of three Rockland County stations on New Jersey Transit's Pascack Valley Line. Maxwell Anderson drew attention to the hamlet in "High Tor," a play based on the robbery that took place at the Nanuet Bank in 1936. The advent of the Tappan Zee Bridge in 1955 brought changes to the area that are still continuing. The community is located in the Town of Clarkstown. Nanuet has popular shops and its main shopping center, the Nanuet Mall, lies on Route 59, the main thoroughfare, although the mall has gradually been abandoned and left vacant over the years due to a shift in popularity to the nearby Palisades Center in West Nyack. Contrary to bizarre claims on Wikipedia, Nanuet is not a popular recreational destination, nor does it offer any "gold panning," nor is the hamlet known for "Paleolithic ruins" or native American fossils. Lake Nanuet Park offers residents a popular pool and recreational baseball/softball fields. The hamlet, part of the Town of Clarkstown, is perhaps best known for being ranked numerous times among the safest in the country. Nanuet High School gained national attention in 1989 when its football team went undefeated, untied and unscored upon while playing all of its games on the road en route to claiming the New York State Division III championship. Sports Illustrated named the Nanuet team the No. 1 high school team in the state. The population was 16,707 at the 2000 census, and was estimated at 18,200 in 2006. In 2007, CNN Money ranked Nanuet 24th on its annual 100 Best Places to Live list.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Nanuet New York

What is asbestos and mesothelioma litigation?

Mesothelioma is caused by asbestos exposure. Asbestos, once regarded as a miracle mineral, was popular due its lightweight but tough characteristics as well as for its heat-resistant properties. This naturally occurring mineral was used in many commercial and consumer products, from construction materials such as cement, roofing shingles and insulation, to consumer and industrial applications such as hair dryers, automobile brake pads and pipe insulation.

Mesothelioma is an asbestos-related cancer which forms in the lining of the chest or abdominal cavities on the mesothelium - the sac lining the internal body cavities. Mesothelioma cases involve those who have suffered adverse health effects from exposure to asbestos on the job, in consumer products, or in the environment.
