The Bump Baby Registry
Now is the perfect time to start your Baby Registry!START A REGISTRY
I am thinking of making the move from Hoboken NJ to Westchester. My husband and I both work in NYC and we just love Westchester, however, we do not know THAT much about the different towns.
Can you let me know where you all live and why you love it? We are looking for a nice town, within an hour commute to the city, reasonable taxes and good public schools.
Just tapping into you guys. THank you so much in advance.
Re: Westchester Moms, please come in :)
My Husband and I currently rent in Tarrytown - and are looking to buy before baby arrives (I'm due in August) - We love Tarrytown, it has a quaint Main Street, if you are runner there are plenty of paths and sidewalks to run on. Problem we are having is finding a home that fits our budget, and does not need to be renovated any time soon. Depending on your budget you can get a great house here, taxes vary on where the house is located, land etc. Schools are pretty good and commute to the city is a breeze. Ranges from 37 minutes - 55 minutes depending on your train.
Because we are having a hard time finding a place here, we are also looking in Croton on Hudson which is a bit further north, but has a 43 minute express train to the city.
Armonk is a great, small town with about a "door to door" commute to NYC of about 1 1/2 hrs if going all the way downtown (less obviously if to midtown). It is moderate / middle of the road for taxes in westchester. It's much better than lower westchester, but not as good as upper westchester . As far as schools go - Armonk is top 3-5 of all towns and taxes are much less than Irvington, Chappaqua and Scarsdale - the 3 other top rated school districts.
Ossining is a great town toogood schools and nice little area. Tarry town is amazing too though I couldn't afford when I bought. Love being close to it though!
