Scarsdale was founded by Caleb Heathcote in the early 17th century. It’s the quintessential village, with Tudor-inspired buildings and a charming small-town feel. The village atmosphere is rounded out by many bakeries, boutiques, galleries and a wide variety of eateries, including outside dining, upscale restaurants, pizzerias, take-out and delis. Chase Park hosts summer concerts and shows, and the many other parks offer lots of recreational activities with 26 tennis courts, five pools, and a multitude of playgrounds. Scarsdale also has a nursery and day camp for Scarsdale residents called Kids Base.
Scarsdale is particularly known for its strong sense of community. Scarsdale homes include classic Tudor-style designs, contemporary designs, classic colonials, and new constructions, as well as upscale co-op apartments and a condominium in the heart of the Village. Scarsdale is an express stop on Metro North and is a quick 29 minutes to Grand Central Station. It is convenient to many highways, houses of worship and shopping.
