Share Info About White Plains
You'll find a variety of options when searching for White Plains apartments, as you would expect in any small-sized city that features both its own thriving downtown area as well as a distinct suburban element. Most residents of these NY apartments commute to nearby Manhattan. White Plains is located in the southern-central section of Westchester County in the state of New York, and is bordered to the east by the town of Harrison, New York; to the south by Scarsdale, to the west by Greenburgh, and to the north by New Castle, all well-heeled, leafy residential communities. White Plains has a rich history—not least of which is the Revolutionary War battle that bears its name, one that proved pivotal to the Colonists' victory over the English—and scores of beautiful old homes. But this is also a thoroughly modern city, the center of local government as the county seat, and all with a focus on business and future economic growth. White Plains has several NY apartments in any number of the city's nearly 35 specific neighborhoods, from the bustling North White Plains and North Street to the bucolic Saxon Woods, Fisher Hill and Gedney Manor. The housing stock available for White Plains rental apartments includes attached and detached single-, two- and multi-family houses; mid- and high-rise residential buildings, both pre-war and contemporary; and lovely garden apartment complexes. Residents of White Plains apartments who commute to New York City—and there are many such professionals living here—take the Metro North Railroad at either the White Plains or the North White Plains Station, and a trip to Grand Central Terminal during rush hour takes about 40 minutes. For those wishing to drive into the city, the Bronx River Parkway is the most immediate, and quickest, route south. There is also an extensive public bus network—the Bee Line—serving intra-Westchester customers. White Plains even has its own airport—the Westchester County Airport, in next-door Harrison, approximately seven miles from downtown, which accounts for the recent boom in hotel development, including the mixed-use Ritz-Carlton Westchester, which is one of the tallest buildings anywhere on the northeast corridor between New York City and Boston. Residents of White Plains apartments—like all Westchester County denizens in the area—take full advantage of retail's dominance of the city's downtown area, including malls such as the Galleria, the Westchester, and The Source at White Plains, which house such big-name stores and restaurants as Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy's, Morton's of Chicago, Whole Foods Markets, and the Cheesecake Factory.
