Scarsdale NY is a township that is sandwiched in the middle of the county. The central location means that it is indeed landlocked. But it also offers easy access to all points of the county and NYC.
Though primarily known for its famous residential areas such as Green Acres, Fox Meadow, Edgewood, Quaker Ridge and Heathcoate, the village itself is charming, sporting such high end retail as the famous Zachys for wine and liquor and restaurants such as Muscato and Chat Scarsdale – make the village active and alive with activity. Known for its large lots, rolling lawns and magnificent homes and estates – Scarsdale is thought of as a destination unto itself. More modest homes also dot the landscape and it is a popular destination for homebuyers.
Scarsdale is flanked by two major cities White Plains NY is nestled to the north east of Scarsdale and is considered its neighbor to the north. New Rochelle is to the south. To the east is Mamaroneck and Larchmont and to the west there is the Edgemont and Hartsdale P.O.’s of the town of Greenburgh.
Many people think of Edgemont as Scarsdale. It is not. Although it has a Scarsdale PO and the famous 10583 zip code, it is not located in Scarsdale. Further – portions of Eastchester also bear the Scarsdale P.O. and zip code. This includes the famous line of cooperatives along the very popular Garth Road. The confusion is easy to understand but the distinction needs to be drawn because these lines impact municipality, taxes, and school districts -so the buyer needs to be aware of the differences.
Scarsdale is a stop along the Harlem Line which terminates at Grand Central Station in midtown Manhattan. The commute is roughly 29 minutes with and 15-17 trains during peak hours in the morning and evening. It is an express stop during peak hours.
The major routes running through Scarsdale are the….
