The 411: Even though Elmsford is tiny—a little over one square mile—it is far from remote. The halfway point between White Plains and Tarrytown, the unpretentious village sits at a nexus of major highways, including I-287, the Saw Mill River Parkway, the Sprain Brook Parkway, Route 9A (Saw Mill River Road), and Route 119 (Tarrytown Road). As such—and despite its lack of a picturesque Main Street in favor of multi-lane thoroughfares—the town has become attractive as a hub for local businesses in its many office parks, as well as restaurants (Pete's Saloon is a local institution), discount stores (look out for bargains at many warehouse sales), and entertainment destinations including Sportime USA, the Westchester Skating Academy, and the Westchester Broadway Theatre (recent productions have included The Producers and I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change). Elmsford's population is diverse and, while housing stock is as varied as the village's demographics, affordable split-level homes are listed on a regular basis.
