If you are looking for a condo, White Plains is Great!!! To give you that "city" feeling, most of the supermarkets offer online shopping and delivery ... Shop Rite also offers delivery for $3.95 if you've gone to the store, but can't bring the groceries home yourself. If you are looking for a house, however, the choices near the train are somewhat limited.... more
There are some great areas within 15 minutes of White Plains. So much depends on your own wants and needs. Do you like newer homes, older established Neighborhoods? Do you want a townhome with pool and tennis or a single family home.
Do you want to be close to the water, a highway or the train. Find a good local Realtor that can show you all of central Westchester, then set up an appointment to see a few homes in a few towns in and near White Plains.
The wonderful thing about White Plains is that it has many distinctive neighborhoods - all close to public transportation. White Plains has a large police force and, generally speaking, is as safe as many other communities in Westchester County. One must, however, always be cautious - I would venture to say there isn't a place on this planet that is 100% crime free. The downtown area boasts malls, shops, restaurants, has Jefferson Place, the Ritz Carlton and Trump buildings which are safe and secure and well patrolled. You can walk to the downtown area from the Battle Hill area (hilly). There are many fine homes, condos and co-ops for sale.
