The 411: Lewisboro is a horseshoe-shaped town on New York's eastern border with Connecticut, spread out over almost 30 square miles of woods, open land, and lakes. Wrapping around Pound Ridge reservations, the town consists of the hamlets of Cross River (with a shopping center and John Jay High and Middles Schools); South Salem (home to the town park, library, and town offices); Goldens Bridge (with a small shopping center and Metro-North station); and Waccabuc (all residential except for a country club and post office) to the northeast, and Vista (with a shopping corridor) to the southeast, close to the New Canaan border. The dearth of commercial development is in keeping with the rural, rustic feel of the community. Indeed, preserving open space and dirt roads is a priority for many residents. Hiking and bike trails abound; the seven lakes are surrounded by close-knit beach communities. There are a few townhouse and condominium development throughout the town, and homes range from contemporaries to homesteads dating back to the 1700s.
