Port Chester

The 411: Since its beginnings as an industrial boat-building community (it was formerly known as “Saw Pit”), Port Chester has evolved into a food Mecca with a buzzing downtown restaurant scene, including Tarry Lodge, F.I.S.H., Sonora, Alba’s, and The Willett House. A large Latino immigrant population further enhances the village’s dining-destination cred, with numerous authentic ethnic eateries representing Peru, Mexico, Colombia, and Brazil. Port Chester is also known for the Waterfront, a retail/entertainment center that features a 14-screen movie theater, Costco, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Super Stop & Shop, Marshall's, and numerous restaurants.

Points of interest include the 1920s Capitol Theater, where Janis Joplin appeared in August, 1970 (it’s now an event site); the Landmark Condominium (the former Lifesavers candy factory); and a 75-plus-slip marina along the Byram River.

Port Chester has six parks for general recreation, including picnicking and sports. At Columbus Park, a water-spray playground was installed for relief during hot summer days.
