White Plains

Located about 30 minutes from Manhattan, White Plains is a commercial center where city and suburb meet. White Plains packs golf courses and 40-story buildings in the same town, corporate hubs and secluded side streets all within a 10-mile radius. The city is easily accessible by numerous highways, as well as a Metro-North Train Station.

The downtown serves as a destination retail center and is home to two major malls, The Westchester Mall and The Galleria, as well as a free-standing Bloomingdale's, and several smaller shopping complexes. The City Center is exactly that, a vast development featuring a movie theater, restaurants and apartment complexes in the heart of the downtown district. The newly added Renaissance Square, which features a luxury Ritz-Carlton Hotel and 400 condominium units, has upped the demand and cost of living in the surrounding areas.

An array of bars, pubs and night clubs are all within walking district and have helped shape the city’s night life, attracting people from all over Westchester, Connecticut and even Manhattan. A short drive down Mamaroneck Avenue takes you out of the urban center and into suburban neighborhoods.

The city has an impressive public school district, known for it’s academics, diverse student population and athletics. Evening football at the state-of-the-art football field or hockey games at Ebersole ice rink bring fans together of all different ages.
