Scarsdale

About the area

Welcome to Scarsdale in Westchester County New York, 20 miles and 25 minutes north of New York City. The 6.7-square-mile town is quaint, walkable and lined with the kind of mom-and-pop shops towns crave. In addition to several country club options, the outdoor highlight is Bronx River Parkway Reservation, an 807-acre linear park whose Garth Woods section brushes Scarsdale. Scarsdale offers mostly handsome single-family homes, many from the 1920s and 1930s, as apartments make up less half a percent of Scarsdale’s housing. Besides Tudors in various shapes and sizes, Italianate, Georgian and Mediterranean styles are represented, often on the same block, helping streets avoid a cookie-cutter look. In addition to a plethora of local restaurants and well-known retailers (a few of many named below), Scarsdale is home to Trader Joe’s, Fresh Market, Zachys, Equinox, NY Sports Club and everything else you need!
