The 411: For a village with two train stations and luxury, loft condos, Tuckahoe has a whole lot of small-town feel. There's the river that winds along its border with Yonkers, the parks and duck pond, weekly farmers' markets, and the 19th-century mill. Annual Columbus Day parades and July 4th firework extravaganzas draw together much of the community, attracting many outsiders, too, and there are even town golf outings. The village has changed a lot in the last decade, as the abandoned factory and mill became SoHo-style condos with river views and the Olde Stone Mill restaurant (featured twice on Kitchen Nightmares with Gordon Ramsay), all with a 33-minute express trip to Grand Central. The town also boasts a wide variety of restaurants from Indian and Italian to grills and gastropubs.
