The highly esteemed city of New Rochelle, New York is located in Westchester County, just two miles north of the New York City border.
New Rochelle is a city of nearly 80,000 people that come from all stations and walks of life. Gated communities in Premium Point, Kensington Woods, The Greens at Cherry Lawn, and Riviera Shores offer housing starting at $2 million. While it may be expected that only the elite would be able to live within the bounds of New Rochelle, its compliance with state housing proves otherwise. Affordable townhouse-style units are available to the working class, along with reasonably-priced single-family homes. Grand Central Terminal can be reached via train in just 35 minutes.
The draw to New Rochelle comes from many different factors: its extensive coastline, the virtual playground of islands, the picturesque lighthouse, the historic churches, and Leland Castle, the former home turned art gallery of hotel entrepreneur, Simeon Leland. The city also boasts more than 231 acres of park space, including the pristine beaches of Glen Island and the untouched natural beauty of Ward Acres, a 62-acre park featuring hiking trails, historic cemeteries and horse stables.
This widely diverse city is filled with beautiful and natural sights and beckons the young, old, rich, and poor within its walls.
