The 411: Occupying just under 40 square miles, Bedford is located in northern Westchester County and includes three small hamlets: Bedford Hills, Katonah (see separate write-up), and Bedford Corners. Bedford Village has a small-town feel, with a smattering of historic Colonial-era houses, an old-fashioned movie theater, and a central village green. The community is woody and rural with pockets of commercial activity (and a prison!) amid sprawling horse farms, country estates, sweet antique homes, and dramatic contemporaries. There are Metro-North train stations in both Katonah and Bedford Hills; it takes about an hour to get to Grand Central.
