The 411: This lovely little village offers small-town charm with a sophisticated accent, as it attracts many French families who enroll their children in the private French American School located here. Larchmont is a particularly favored community for those making that first leap to the ‘burbs from the city as it has much to offer: an easy commute to the city, highly rated public schools, lovely parks, and a delightful downtown shopping district dotted with interesting small boutiques, gourmet stores, a wide variety of eateries, antiques shops and decorating studios, and even its own children’s bookshop.
Originally founded as a summer shoreline retreat for the wealthy, Larchmont, while now a year-round suburb, still attracts many successful lawyers, bankers, and a slew of former Upper West Side psychologists and psychiatrists to its many vintage homes (circa 1920s), grand estates on Long Island Sound, and closer-to-town family-friendly neighborhoods. Larchmont offers one of the most scenic waterfront parks in the county—Manor Park, with its 13 prime acres, much of which lies on Long Island Sound, has been likened to a smaller version of the famed Cliff Walk in Newport, Rhode Island, and features flat rocks that even the littlest residents can walk on at low tide and benches carved into larger rocks from which to soak in the spectacular sunsets. Not surprisingly, boating is big here, with the village also home to the private Larchmont Shore Club. And Larchmont’s popular Watercolor Café, with its full schedule of live music performances, attracts both locals and other music lovers from throughout the county.
