Holly, Other/Just Looking in New Rochelle, NY

Is Weehawken or lower Westchester (New Rochelle) a better investment?

Asked by Holly, New Rochelle, NY Sun Mar 2, 2008

I am currenlty from CT, and do not know much about either one of these areas. I will be taking a job in NYC and need somewhere within a 30-45 commute that will also appreciate in value within the next 3-5 yrs. If anyone has any guidance or advice on where you think I should be looking please help!
Thanks!! :)

I just answered you on another question so here goes. I am a life-long resident of the City of New Rochelle. There are may reasons to look for a home here including proximity to NYC, billions of dollars in new development in our downtown including a completed Trump Plaza and 2 Avalon Communities rental buildings with approximately 1000 new tenants, an awsome entertainment complex called New Roc, an amazing ecclectic dining experience, a multi-cultural and diverse community with many different houses of worship, miles of waterfront with access from many city and county parks including 2 beaches, a municipal marina for the boating enthusiasts, plenty of senior assisted living facilities for loved ones, a great school system just to name a few. If you are interested in taking a tour of New Rochelle, please contact me. I promise to show you the good and bad that New Rochelle has to offer so you can make an intelligent decision. I used this answer to a different question as well and I wanted to add something for you to think about. New Rochelle is up and coming, New Rochelle has 2 projects on the near horizon which includes another Trump/Cappelli double tower including 300,000 sf of office space, the "W" hotel, 150,000sf of retail on ground floor as well as 160 additional condo or rental units. We are also in the exploritory stage of a 26 acre waterfront development which was recently rewarding to a very cash deep company which includes a hotel, city center, retail, biking and walking trail along the Long Island Sound. I am sorry I could not give you info on Weehawken, but if it has the potential of what I describe above I would flip a coin or go with the shortest commute(approximately 28 minutes to Grand Central Station in NYC) Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in viewing anything in New Rochelle. Good luck with your search.
