Scarsdale

Beyond being Westchester’s wealthiest town, Scarsdale can also pride itself with being the county’s most educated (at least according to standardized tests) as Scarsdale’s student average on the SATs is the highest in Westchester (1916 out of 2400). As a result of being the county’s wealthiest town it does not come as a surprise that its Tudor-style downtown area is jam-packed with fashionable boutiques, upscale shops and pricey restaurants for the extravagant gourmand. Among many other points of interest, Zachys stands out as a nationally recognized wine emporium, attracting wine connoisseurs from across the world since 1944.

In addition to its exclusive downtown area, even more exclusive homes surround this town of roughly 20,000 residents. The massive estates that lay on the outskirts of Scarsdale house some of the most affluent people in the state and publicly notable natives include Rob Reiner, Linda McCartney and Liza Minnelli.
