The 411: Settled by Quakers in the 1730s, this hamlet is a tony enclave in the middle of the county, just nine miles north of White Plains, and 31 miles from midtown Manhattan. Despite its close and convenient proximity to urban centers, Chappaqua is known for its upsacale, quiet neighborhoods and excellent public school system. A low population density (a third of the village comprises single-family homes, while another third is undeveloped land) contributes to the village’s charming New England vibe, and it is replete with many historic homes, barns, and structures dating back to the Revolutionary War. Chappaqua retains its crown as the one of the nation’s most affluent, quiet, and picturesque suburbs.
