    Pelham is the oldest town in Westchester County. There are two charming villages incorporated within it, the Village of Pelham and the Village of Pelham Manor, both of which pride themselves on active social communities. The commute to Grand Central from the Pelham Metro North station is less then 30 minutes. Pelham is Westchester’s best kept secret!

    1. The Picture House, an historic landmark in Pelham, offers a distinct alternative to multiplexes and has a summer-long calendar of independent, international, documentary, and classic cinema. This month there is something for everyone, including Shakespeare HighThe Lady, and many more!
    1.  Pelham Art Center (PAC) whose mission has been to provide the public with art since 1970 continues to add exhibits and classes for the community. In the gallery until June 30th is the Light Matter exhibit featuring six artists exploring light as both subject and form. PAC is excited to join the Pelham Street Fair, with the return of last year’s popular capoeira demonstration, which is a traditional Brazilian art form. The Street Fair will be Sunday June 24 from 1:30-3:30.
    1. Pelham offers a broad range of recreational programs for all ages. The programs vary from ballroom dancing classes to tennis lessons and trips to the zoo! Starting the end of June the Summer Concert series will start up on Monday evenings from 7:30- 9:00 PM at the Town House Park.
    1. The New York Botanical Gardens is located in the Bronx, less than 15 minutes from Pelham.  Don’t miss Monet’s Gardens, a seasonally changing interpretation of the gardens that inspired Monet’s breathtaking art, and runs through October. Monet has said that flowers were his muse and this exhibit brings to life his inspiration.
    1. Bistro Rollin an American Bistro with a classic French influence is centrally located on 142 Fifth Avenue. Bistro Rollin opened in June 2009 and has developed a reputation forfantastic reviews! Its sidewalk café is now open where you can enjoy a great lunch or dinner!
