Eastchester

Why Live Here?
Among the things Eastchester residents like best about where they live is the sense of community in its various neighborhoods, and for children, within the school district, which offers three elementary schools and a middle and high school. They also are proud of the area’s green vistas, for a place close to New York City. The unincorporated section of Eastchester is a very active part of the greater Town of Eastchester, which also includes the villages of Tuckahoe and Bronxville.

Many of Eastchester’s single-family homes are in developments built during the 1950s. In one of the earlier developments, tidy Capes and Colonials abound; in another, there are larger split-levels and other Colonials built at about the same time. In yet another area, renovated brick contemporaries and newer housing can be found. There are also a number of co-ops, garden apartments and condominiums for those who prefer a different kind of living, many within walking distance of the Scarsdale Metro-North Railroad station, one of a few train stations used by Eastchester residents for commuting both to New York City and to other business areas in New York and Connecticut. Additionally, two bordering highways provide efficient driving time to Manhattan and to other areas.

Another point of pride is Lake Isle Park, a large facility with a multitude of recreational offerings. Run by the town, the park offers five pools, including kiddie pools; an 18-hole golf course, and six tennis courts. The town also has five mini-parks, including Mill Road Park on one-quarter of an acre, with a Victorian-style gazebo and benches, picnic tables and a small grassy play area, and Twin Lakes Park which is a great place to hike, run, bird watch and ride horses around the big lake. The Eastchester Arts Council sponsors and presents cultural programs including concerts, exhibits, and after school programs in schools and the Recreation Department sponsors a summer theater program for youth as well as summer concerts at the Eastchester Town Hall.

Shopping is another Eastchester hallmark, with the Vernon Hills Shopping Center providing close-to-home national retailers, including Lord and Taylor, Banana Republic and Gap. Grocery stores and drugstores are easily reached, and proximity to shopping areas in White Plains and Yonkers gives residents additional choices.

Why We Love It!
The stables at Twin Lakes Park are great, and the arenas are just right for learning to ride. I’d barely been on a horse the first time I went and now I feel really comfortable and like I know what I’m doing! ~ Tina

Had a spectacular lunch at the Eastchester Fish Gourmet. Delicious. Its own fish market is a couple of doors down so you know the fish is really fresh. Saving room for the Grand Marnier soufflé the next time I go! ~ Gary
