Lower Westchester


Ranking as the nation's 21st most affluent town, the Eastchester village of Bronxville has always attracted a well-heeled, well-connected population, best personified by the one-time resident John F Kennedy. A mere 15 mile commute from Grand Central, this green suburb is a world away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, with a famously progressive namesake school and Westchester's oldest park, the Bronx River Parkway Reservation, running up into the southern section of the village. Perfect for bicycling, walking and running, the Reservation offers ponds, footbridges and countless varieties of native trees and plant life. A green, leafy suburb, Bronxville is a classic example of a very traditional brand of low-key, high-class Westchester living.
