It is a common misconception that all Briarcliff teenagers spend every weekend partying. Yes there are many kids who do that, as in every town, but there are also many kids who don't drink or do drugs and spend their weekends relaxing and hanging out in the small town.
A popular story about the town is that the very last building on the street (not the Patio) is cursed, as recently, anyone who has owned that property has either died or experienced a death in the family causing them to sell the place. Not 1 owner has been able to hold on to the property for longer than a year since the owner of a soap and perfume store in that location, died. It is rumored she died in the building and has haunted it since.
Briarcliff is just like any other town, but a lot of people like to insult it because it has some wealthier residents.
Briarcliff Girl: (to her friend) Wow, did you hear that? Some people don't know the difference between what is a stereotype and what's true.
In Briarcliff, everyone knows everything about you, and even some things you don't even know about yourself. Usually gossip about yourself is heard by everyone else before you hear it. Some junior was claimed to have a chode and it is still the talk of the school today. Many kids complain about how jappy the town is and how strict the schools are. Although this is true to some extent, the kids are also ignoring the amazing education they are receiving.
Town sucks ass. There are a few crappy shops and restaurants, all of which are highly overpriced and ugly. The youth center, as stated before, is (or used to be at least) a popular smoking spot. Mostly skaters, their girlfriends, and kids who have nowhere else to socialize come to town.
Because of the strictly Jewish / Christian / white population, many freshmen are stunned when black kids transfer into the school. Kids are even more shocked when they are sent off to college and forced to function in the real world, where there are people who are actually struggling with financial issues and are of different racial backgrounds.
If you're from Briarcliff and you meet people from other states/counties and they ask where you're from, you sigh and say Westchester.
