About the area

Welcome to Bedford in Westchester County New York, 48 miles and one hour north of New York City. Bedford is a town of 16,000 residents in 39 square miles. Once the home of dairy farms and large estates, it’s still a favorite place for those who love the country but want to be near The City. Each of Bedford’s hamlets, Bedford Hills, Bedford Village, and Katonah, has a town park with swimming and tennis, a library, locally owned shops, a volunteer fire company, and, of course, its own special character. The town supports the arts with concerts, art museums and galleries, lectures by well-known experts, house and garden tours, and family activities. It’s like a slice of the Berkshires in a New York City commuter town, and sometimes feels like Westchester County’s little secret.
