Why Live Here?
The City of Rye, on the shore of Long Island Sound, with its water vistas, nature and wildlife preserves and open spaces, is a unique blending of the old and the new. It’s steeped in history and filled with landmarks of it’s rich and storied past, and its residential areas show off beautiful, renovated and new homes geared for up-to-the-minute modern living. Rye has an active downtown that features work of local artisans as well as an array of fashion and decorating shops, an independent book store, and a range of highly rated restaurants.

Residents of all ages care passionately about the excellent education provided by the schools and support many student endeavors, from professional level art exhibits to holiday concerts and academic presentations.

The Rye School of Leadership, part of Rye High School, serves students who learn best in a non-traditional educational environment.

The Village Green is home to The Square House Museum, once an 18th century inn which, along with the Timothy Knapp House, Westchester County’s oldest surviving house, is overseen by the Rye Historical Society; the Rye Free Reading Room, Rye’s very active library; and City Hall.
