Port Chester

About the area

Bordered by Rye Brook, Rye City and Greenwich, Conn., Port Chester is a 2.4-square-mile village in the town of Rye in Westchester County. Along its eastern edge, the Byram River flows into Long Island Sound at Port Chester Harbor. Not far away, Interstate 287 meets Interstate 95. All of which makes this primarily working-class suburb of roughly 29,000 a hub of commerce surrounded by affluence and some lovely water vistas. There are approximately 10,000 housing units in the village. About a third are two-, three- and four-family homes near downtown. Another third are single-family capes, colonials, Tudors and raised ranches, many of them farther north, where streets are wider. Near the harbor, the Grey Rock neighborhood is a cluster of homes with private access to the water.
