For more than a century, Scarsdale has attracted residents for its beautiful scenery, easy access to the city, family-friendly reputation and well-regarded schools.


Situated 24 miles north of Midtown Manhattan, Scarsdale, New York is an upscale community in the heart of southern Westchester County. Residents can catch a Metro-North Harlem line train from either the Hartsdale or Scarsdale station and arrive at Grand Central in just 30 minutes. Caleb Heathcote, the 31st mayor of New York City, purchased the lands on which Scarsdale sits in the late 1600s. While the town of Scarsdale - which takes its name from Heathcote's ancestral lands in Derbyshire, England - was formed in 1788, the area was largely rural farmland until 1891. That's when the Arthur Suburban Home Company purchased a 150-acre plot and began building single-family homes. This simple act set Scarsdale on a steady course from rural outpost to suburban enclave.

Today, Scarsdale is town of neighborhoods, each sharing a name with its adjacent elementary school and offering its own character and housing stock. Large Tudor and colonial homes abound, and even new construction houses typically conform to these styles. Many residences in Greenacres and Fox Meadow are among the oldest in Scarsdale and sprang up during the 1920s near the city's burgeoning railway. These homes are still highly prized by commuters who wish to walk to the train. Fox Meadow is notable for its condominium offerings, which are scarce in Scarsdale. Edgewood is typically considered the most affordable of Scarsdale's pricey neighborhoods, while the Heathcote section of the city is renowned for its palatial multimillion-dollar estates. The median home value in Scarsdale is an impressive $1.23 million, or seven times the national median, and 91 percent are owner occupied. Scarsdale's quaint village downtown is lined with charming Tudor buildings filled with sidewalk cafés, boutiques and salons. While just across the Eastchester border, you'll find the Vernon Hills Shopping Center featuring Lord & Taylor, Banana Republic and West Elm, plus Trader Joe's and more shops across the street.

Scarsdale's Parks Recreation & Conservation Department is known for its dozens of great facilities and its jam-packed roster of activities for residents of all ages, including softball, soccer, basketball and seniors' programs. Premier facilities include the Scarsdale Pool complex, an open-air wonderland with four pools and the Weinberg Nature Center, an 8-acre escape with live animals, trails and a nature museum. Roughly 18,000 residents call this prestigious and affluent village home. The median age is 42 years old, and the median household income is more than four times the national average at $242,782. Nearly 99 percent of residents are high school educated, and 87 percent have obtained a bachelor's degree or higher. It's no surprise then that Scarsdale citizens have, for quite some time, placed a premium on their children's educations as well. The Scarsdale Union Free School District operates five elementary schools, Scarsdale Middle School and Scarsdale High School. Combined, the schools enroll approximately 4,800 students each year and are among the premier public institutions in the country. At the nationally recognized high school, 41 percent of students take College Board Advanced Placement-level courses, and 97 percent of students go on to four-year institutions. Aside from rigorous academics, students at Scarsdale High School can participate in 25 different sports and an array of extracurricular programs. Private schools in Scarsdale include the Alcott School and the Immaculate Heart of Mary School.

As a cohesive suburban community, Scarsdale offers a number of clubs and associations providing both recreation and social opportunities. In fact, some of the oldest groups in the town still operate to this day. The Town Club, established in 1904, was the predecessor to today's Town & Village Civic Club, and the 90 year old Scarsdale Woman's Club still actively supports the community through philanthropy and events. Residents enjoy recreation at stellar private clubs both in Scarsdale proper, and in the surrounding area. Established in 1898, the Scarsdale Golf Club is a private country club situated just outside the town boundary in Hartsdale offering golf, tennis swimming and bowling in stunning surroundings. Established in 1924, the Fenway Golf Club offers golf and tennis, plus a swimming pool and clubhouse.
