Armonk, NY —
There’s something for everyone of all ages
I’ve been living in the town of North Castle for over 25 years and Armonk, a hamlet in the town, is a wonderful place that we call home. Being a part of this small town has been a fabulous experience raising my family. One of the main reasons we moved here was the outstanding reputation of the award winning Byram Hills Public Schools. There are many other benefits when living in a small town like ours. You can walk to everything and there’s a great sense of pride in our community from the local shops to the several outstanding restaurants. I especially love walking through Armonk Square and stopping by the friendly Tazza Cafe for a delicious chai tea latte, or getting a quick bite for lunch at Armonk’s Country Kitchen... the turkey dumplings are still my daughter Crissyʼs favorite. And when it comes to dining, weʼve got that covered, with options in American, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and Indian cuisine. I adore the Chicken Vindaloo and Peshwari Naan at Indi-Q
West Harlem, NY —
West Harlem is my favorite neighborhood in Upper Manhattan!
West Harlem is my favorite neighborhood in Upper Manhattan and has been my home for the past 12 years. I love the Parisian and multicultural feel of this beautiful Manhattan enclave nestled between Morningside Park, St. Nicholas Ave and the Hudson River. It’s very easily accessible on its eastern side with the A, B, C, D subway lines and on its western side with the 1 train, it is also conveniently accessible with the M3, M4, M5 bus lines.
Battery Park City, NY —
Countless Lifestyle Opportunities!
At times it is easy to forget that Manhattan is an island and sailing is part of its history and culture. As an avid sailor, my youth was spent growing up in New York City and revolved around sailing, boatyards, and sail lofts. This is why Battery Park, being a maritime hub, with the sights and sounds of a working waterfront feels like home. The presence of ferries, work boats and enhance the notion that New York is the third largest seaport in the United States.
Chappaqua, NY —
Quaint little hamlet town
It’s an easy commute to NYC and it’s been ranked by Newsweek Magazine as "One of America's Best Public High Schools," so moving to Chappaqua would be one of the best decisions you ever make. With an $11 million downtown revitalization plan and complete renovation of the Reader's Digest campus which will soon include a Whole Foods and shops, Chappaqua is one of the most sought-after suburbs throughout Westchester County.
Upper West Side, NY —
The Upper West Side really has something for everyone!
Home to Jerry Seinfeld, Meg Ryan in You've Got Mail and Chuck Bass's hotel in Gossip Girl, the Upper West Side has it all! Sandwiched between two of Manhattan's most popular parks- Central Park and Riverside Park is where you will find families pushing strollers, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and some of my favorite restaurants.
Rye, NY —
A visit to Rye.....History, Nature, Sand and Surf
Rye is a quaint city nestled along Long Island Sound founded in 1660 with a hometown feel. The smallest city in New York State, incorporated in 1942, Rye is just a 38 minute express train ride to Grand Central Station. From waterfront mansions and numerous yacht and tennis clubs and a city marina, Rye abounds in recreational facilities and even has a city-owned public golf course with pool, and a YMCA.
Yorktown Heights, NY —
The Town That Keeps on Giving!!!
When Bob and I were looking into buying a house in Westchester County, we would always gravitate back to Yorktown Heights. It was the best deal of a suburban town; the schools, the town parks, lakes, two incredible town parks and a beautiful walking trail that goes over Croton dam. It is really a North County trail that goes through Westchester County into Putnam County.
Bedford, NY —
The 1700's of Bedford, Connecticut to Bedford, New York
Bedford, Connecticut was purchased in 1680. In 1700, the boundaries were redrawn and subsequently it became part of New York. From the earliest period of colonial history, Bedford has kept a decidedly New England aesthetic. As the Revolutionary War ensued, Bedford played a significant part in the formation of early America.
Midtown East, NY —
The City That Never Sleeps
The Midtown East area of New York City is comprised of Sutton Place, Beekman Place, Turtle Bay and Tudor City.
Pound Ridge, NY —
Pound Ridge, God’s County
Pound Ridge is the smallest town in Westchester County and is often referred to as God's County because of it's picturesque country setting. Weekenders and full time residents alike are drawn to it's open space and small close knit community. In the 1930s, Hiram Halle, a New York inventor and businessman, moved to Pound Ridge and began restoring houses damaged by the British during the Revolution. The real estate attracted actors, writers, artists and musicians seeking a getaway from Manhattan. Benny Goodman, among the first of them, was so enraptured that he wrote a song titled “Pound Ridge”. Residents have included celebrities like the Bush White House spokesman Ari Fleischer, the actor Richard Gere and the newscaster Tom Brokaw.
Warwick, NY —
Shop 'Til You Drop
I love to window shop eclectic Main Street, with its quaint country flair. The individual-owned boutiques and eateries are as diverse as my mood. This historic row of merchantry reminds me how people have been village shopping and socializing for well over a century here.
