Why Live Here?
The village of Tuckahoe is home to a moderately diverse population as well as to multiple generations of families where children grew up, left to study, and returned to their hometown because they loved it, to raise their families. That close-knit feeling is carried out within the village, in the student body, and in the several residential areas. Because Tuckahoe is small, the walkability factor is big and residents easily stroll to the charming village square, highly regarded restaurants, the community center and other recreation, with lots of greetings among friendly neighbors exchanged along the way.

A village in the town of Eastchester, Tuckahoe is served by two Metro North train stations situated at either end of its borders. The commute to Grand Central Terminal in New York City is about 33 minutes, and the trains are used to travel to business centers in other towns. The village is about one mile square, with the Bronx River serving as its western boundary. Emanating from the train stations are residential areas offering one- and two-family houses and condominiums and co-ops. Most residents walk to the small shopping areas located by both train stations, a charming village square, or to larger stores and shopping areas and specialty shops in the villages of Eastchester and Bronxville.

The community center offers a wide range of programs from fitness classes and yoga to mother and child playgroups as well as basketball and other sports, and the Lake Isle Country Club in Eastchester, open to all residents for a fee, offers five pools, tennis courts, and an 18-hole golf course. Near the river, the Parkway Oval has playing fields, basketball courts, a playground, and very pretty walking trails. As part of the Town of Eastchester, Tuckahoe residents can also participate in the Town of Eastchester’s numerous sports programs including baseball, softball, football, cheerleading, soccer and basketball. Tuckahoe residents evidence great community pride and work hard as volunteers, serving on boards, committees, and in neighborhood associations.

The schools have received a variety of accolades and awards and are committed to academic excellence with the curriculum supported by clubs and enrichment programs. Students at the William E. Cottle Elementary School offer an Italian language and culture program along with art, chess and drama clubs, and the middle and high schools have a wide range of clubs and athletic programs available to interested students. There is a lot to do in this small community, not just for students but for residents of all ages who are loyal to their village and can’t imagine living anywhere else.

Why We Love It!
The Tuckahoe Trolley is just fabulous! It’s easy to walk around town, but the trolley is a fun way to get from one end to the other and it’s especially nice to ride it in the spring and summer to really see all the creative work of the village’s Beautification Committee. There are flowers galore and it’s really lovely. ~ Andrea

There are a lot of excellent restaurants in Tuckahoe, but we love that Roma has been serving amazing food for three generations of the family that owns it. Being part of a community for 75 years is a pretty big deal! Love the pizza, but the entrée choices are great, too. ~ Chirag
