Croton-On-Hudson

Though Croton-on-Hudson may have been a famed Communist hamlet during the Red Scare, its current status as a village in Westchester County is much less political. With its commute-friendly location and abundance of foliage and parks, Croton is both a practical and beautiful place to live.

A tiny yet exceptional school system brings in families of all ages and sizes, and the waterfront area and vast parks, such as Croton Point Park, Senasqua Park, and Teatown Lake Reservation, tempts kids outdoors.

Part of the town of Cortlandt, the small River Village is home to restaurants, local businesses, and a wonderful arts-centric community. Devoted to supporting small businesses and fostering community growth, local landmarks such as The Black Cow Coffee Co. have been in Croton for many years, and the beloved locations show no sign of leaving. The small size of the area is evident, as it is not uncommon to run into one – or five – friends on your way to pick up your morning coffee. Art programs, such as the Croton Academy of Arts, are heavily attended, as is the annual Summerfest festival, which is an all-day affair that hosts crafters and musicians from the local area. Though a small village without many frills, Croton offers its community a unique and vibrant feel unmatched by any other area in the County.
