What Westchester Costs
From the price of a gallon of milk to the cost of educating our children, we break down the County by the numbers.
If you’re a regular reader of Westchester Magazine, you know that, in 2011, we found out that the County is worth “a cool trillion” dollars. Not bad for a suburb, right? But we wanted to know more, and we’ve dug into the topic again.
We took on the big issues: How much do our politicians make and what’s the new Tappan Zee going to cost? We took on little ones: What should we pay for Johnny Jr.’s piano lessons—and Johnny Sr.’s golf game? We found out what our billionaires are worth and talked to everyday people about how they spend their money. We even found some things you can get, or do, for free.
The result is our deepest look yet into what Westchester costs, from the price of a train ticket at the Putnam County border to the salary of the New Rochelle mayor—and everything in between.
