The 411: Located just 35 miles north of New York City and just feet from pristine Greenwich, Connecticut, Armonk is home to prime real estate— even by Westchester standards. A hamlet within the town of North Castle, Armonk is famed for the techy-type (IBM’s global headquarters is located here). The small Westchester town has locality on its mind, with many independent shops and restaurants including Beginnings Bleus, Lillies and Lace, and Opus 465, located on Main Street. Armonk’s Wampus Pond is very scenic in the summertime and great for skating when it freezes over in the winter. Every October, Armonk hosts the Armonk Outdoor Art Show, at which 200 artists gather in IBM Park to showcase their creations.
