The 411: This tiny quintessential bedroom community—less than 10,000 people live within its three-and-a-half miles—is particularly desirable for families. Life in Rye Brook, known for its excellent, private school-like educational system (its high school typically graduates fewer than 100 students) revolves around the kids, their activities, and the schools, starting with the Ridge Street Country School, a private nursery school and camp located here. The town is especially tightly knit and those who live here boast of knowing that they can really count on their friends and neighbors for anything from the proverbial cup of sugar to a last-second lift home from softball practice.
You’ll find tidy split-levels and Colonials on neat, manicured lawns located on quiet streets that attract kids on bikes, teens shooting hoops in driveways, and moms power-walking through the neighborhood, as well as some town homes and cluster housing. And while there is no downtown center, per se, in Rye Brook, three active strip shopping centers, including the fashion- and kid-centric Rye Ridge Shopping Center, serve as informal spots for congregating and catching up with one’s neighbors.
The village offers several lovely parks; its crown jewel is the 35-acre Crawford Park, featuring ball fields, tennis courts, a playground, and the historic Crawford Mansion, which can be rented for parties. Rye Brook is also home to the private Blind Brook County Club, the Rye Town Hilton, and the sprawling Doral Arrowwood Resort and Conference Center; the latter offers a nine-hole golf course that is open to the public.
