You embrace the “urban” in suburban: the convenience, the culture, the energy—just with a little more nature and a little less bustle.
Cosmopolitan living thrives here in as many shades as Metropolis. White Plains pairs Westchester’s tallest towers with a thriving downtown and speedy express to Grand Central. New Rochelle brings a skyline to the Sound Shore, while Yonkers, the fourth-largest city in New York State, blends stunning historic architecture in ridgeline neighborhoods with newer vertical developments towards the river.
Downtown Greenwich is Cannes meets 5th Avenue with a uniquely New England sensibility, anchored by a world-class retail district stretching uphill from its yacht harbor. Luxury townhouses and single-family homes sit steps from “The Avenue,” with high-collar shopping like Saks, Betteridge, an RH Gallery and specialty boutiques.
Art is everywhere, from the Spanish courts of Caramoor to converted-factory Dia:Beacon. Port Chester’s Capitol Theater is a place of rock legend, its walls having witnessed performances by the likes of Bowie, Janis Joplin and the Rolling Stones.
Redbrick-urban thrives in the post-industrial river cities of Peekskill, Beacon and Poughkeepsie, re-invigorated by a burgeoning creative of innovators in food, fashion and technology. Similar vibes echo in Port Chester, where a district of dockside warehouses transformed into Westchester’s culinary epicenter.
