Yep, it certainly gives LA burbs some competition. My wife and I drove through some of these areas back in October during our northeast vacation. I've been through Westchester in the past but never in the fall, it is really beautiful.

I was wondering if the Clinton's live in New Rochelle?

Thanks nygirl1, I look forward to checking out all of your threads.

Thank you so much for letting me relive great memories. An absolutely beautiful and underrated part of the NY metro. Is there going to be a Fairfield, CT tour coming?

As far as I know they are still living in Chappaqua, in northern Westchester.

Wow Molson you are so right! I failed to reach as far as his neck of the woods, however. Yeah when I was walking around this place part of me imagined what it must have been like to grow up in any of the communities. I can't explain the feeling Westchester gave me but it felt like home.

More tours to come from my collection. I'm thinking of doing it in themes. My first will be "downtown" collections outside of Manhattan.

The Clintons presently live in Chappaqua but supposedly bought a house in Bedford, which is home to many famous actors.

A famous resident (former -- at least) of New Rochelle was Thomas Paine who wrote Common Sense around the time of the American Revolution.

Here is his house:

Since NYC is the greatest city in the US, it makes sense that its suburbs are also the greatest. Westchester County is so much cooler than most major cities in the nation... and so much more expensive too.
