The 411: Hartsdale is a haven for commuters. The small Greenburgh hamlet is home to its own Metro-North station, and a bustling scene to serve the train's riders stretches down the picturesque Hartsdale Avenue. There, you can find places to grab an after-work drink, restaurants for eat-in or take-out dinners, boutiques for browsing, or just an easy morning coffee and bagel. (Be sure to dress that bagel with cream cheese from the Hartsdale Cheesery.) Those in need of more serious shopping brave the crowded, busy strip malls, filled with restaurants, chain stores, and movie theaters, lining Central Avenue. Not just a train depot, well-manicured residential areas also abound in Hartsdale, and you can find a mix of Tudors and homes from the 1930s together with more modern houses built in the 1950s and 1960s. In the charming "Poets Corner" neighborhood, streets ending in cul de sacs bear the names of famous writers such as Poe, Keats, Longfellow, and Chaucer.
