The town of Scarsdale lies approximately 37 minutes via express train to Grand Central Station. Its downtown commercial section has, like Bronxville, an older charm with many of the buildings designed in Tudor style. Scarsdale offers an assortment of chain and boutique shops and restaurants with some tony boutiques reminiscent of Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Essentially, you can find a Starbucks or stop into a local spot like the Parkway Coffee Shop for a cup of joe. If you’re in town check out Eastchester Fish Market. This spot sells arguably the best fish in Westchester for cooking at home and just happens to also have the highest rated fish restaurant in Westchester (no reservations taken). If you want to catch a yoga class check out Be True Yoga or spinners will like Flywheel.
Scarsdale’s Greenacres and Foxmeadow neighborhoods are favorites for folks looking for good walkability to the Hartsdale and Scarsdale train stations. This area has pretty, old, historic homes as they were built around the 1920’s. The Edgewood neighborhood has smaller 50 by 100 foot lots, whereas the Heathcote section has many estate sized, large homes. Finally, Quaker Ridge was built in the 50’s, 60s, & 70s so if you’re looking for a split or a more modern home this is where you should take a look.

Scarsdale has a full time paid professional/volunteer firefighting team and they operate out of three fire stations. The Scarsdale Town Pool has been the home to the 2007 Empire State Games. It is also the home to the Scarsdale Concours d’Eegance, a local autoshow that draws classic, vintage cars.
