The 411: Pelham, located on the southeastern tip of Westchester, is as close as you can get to the Bronx and while still living in Westchester, and, as a result, the town maintains a citified air. (Its main street, for those who might still be longing for Manhattan, is even named Fifth Avenue—and it's possible to travel to the midtown version in less than a half-hour.) As in the City—and unlike in some other towns in Westchester—it's possible to access many of the town's resources by walking. A number of residents are involved in the arts, with local institutions like the Pelham Art Center and the Picture House Regional Film Center leading the way for local arts programs. Athletics have their place, too, with everything from tennis to yachting available at the New York Athletic Club's prestigious private club on Pelham's Travers Island. The town of Pelham is divided into two villages—Pelham and Pelham Manor—and both are known for their stately Tudors, Colonials, and Victorian homes, with larger estates bordering the Long Island Sound.
