The 411: A mini-metropolis in the heart of horse country, Mount Kisco is the shopping and dining Mecca for Northern Westchester. Retail giants like Target, Gap, Chico’s, and Borders coexist with one-of-a-kind boutiques and specialty shops like On the One (upscale women’s clothing and accessories, Elephant’s Trunk and Nova Lorraine (formal wear), New York Dolls (junior dresses), and Lot 84 (ultra- cool home furnishings). Dining options are equally varied with more than 40 restaurants: Indian, Mexican, Spanish, Italian, Greek, Chinese, and lots of New American. The vibe is a mix of moms with strollers and business folk. About 25 percent of the town is Hispanic—a nice oasis of diversity in the über-white northern burbs. Housing is varied, too, with a variety of condos and single-family homes ranging from tiny bungalows to sprawling mansions tucked away in the wooded areas above the town. The Metro North commute to Grand Central is about an hour.
