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 —

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.

Washington Slept Here
The town’s history is truly unrivaled. The historic society here went to extreme pains to preserve 9 historic sites that truly will delight the historian in you. Here are some recommended stops. I love it because the quaint bed & breakfasts, local boutiques, fine to casual eateries, coffee shops and weekly farm markets are all integrally back-dropped by Warwick’s rich history. It truly is a testament to our meticulous efforts at preservation as a community. Having served on the historical society, my interest in history is central to my love for what’s here.
A Day in the Country
With an upscale, yet rustic vibe, Warwick has a chic New York style all its own. Nurturing history’s finest preservation, and a flair for artisanal food and farm markets, it’s all about celebrating the simple pleasures in life. There is always a festival or happening--done to the nines. Warwick is a town that anyone can enjoy, with its mix of boutique commerce, historic sites, art and beautiful landscapes lending to an endless litany of outdoor activities. Here, you can revel in a do-nothing weekend, or go for it all. It is the ultimate escape to the country, but when it’s time to go out, it’s got a killer list of entertainments that will get you socializing faster than you can say, “New York.”

This quiet scape of picturesque lake communities is perfect for the active, contemplative or easygoing lifestyle.
