White Plains

Centrally located in Westchester County, White Plains has transformed into a hub for business, shopping, and culture—while still maintaining attractively lower real estate taxes and offering an express train to Manhattan. New office buildings, rental apartment buildings, condominiums and boutique hotels round out a downtown area that’s buzzing with new restaurants, nightlife, movie theaters, outdoor shows and shopping. White Plains has beautiful residential areas such as the Highlands, Rosedale, Gedney Farms and Soundview, reflecting both a suburban and urban feel.

White Plains offers many choices in housing, including rentals, co-op apartments, condominiums, townhouse communities, one of which is gated, and single-family homes. White Plains’ private schools include The German International School, Stepinac, Solomon Schechter of Westchester and Our Lady of Sorrow. The French-American School of New York has purchased the Ridgeway Country Club in White Plains to turn into a new campus. White Plains is very convenient to highways, transportation, upscale shopping and houses of worship.
