Living In: Eastchester


Share Info About Eastchester
Living in Eastchester is like a suburban dream come dream. Technically a town that includes two of southern Westchester's most sought-after places to live, the villages of Bronxville and Tuckahoe, Eastchester combines easy proximity to Manhattan--it's just 30 minutes to Grand Central via Metro North commuter rail--with quiet streets, gorgeous old homes, and a real sense of community. Little wonder that Eastchester recently landed on Money magazine's "100 Best Places To Live" in America, coming in at a strong number 27. This Westschester town may be pretty, and it's certainly a safe, relaxing place to come home to after a day at work, but life in Eastchester is by no means sleepy. Both Bronxville and Tuckahoe have cute, thoroughly contemporary downtown areas, with a great mix of restaurants for all occasions, coffee shops and delis, clothing boutiques and independent shops, grocery stores and ice cream parlors, and all the necessary services. No need to suffer the strip malls: these are walkable, vibrant commercial areas where you can find what you want and where you're likely to run into friends and neighbors as you make your rounds. And there's always plenty to do on the sports and recreation front in Eastchester too, with lots of parkland, organized leagues for kids and adults, public running tracks and tennis courts, and some of Westchester's nicest private country clubs. The towns and cities that border Eastchester include Scarsdale to the north, New Rochelle to the east, Yonkers to the west, and Mount Vernon to the south.
