I strongly disagree with that.

That may be the case with Washington DC, but not in the NY area. In the NY area, inner-suburbs tend to have the highest notch public schools in the region and this where the vast majority of the city's upper middle class choose to settle down in so they can raise their kids in a nice environment with space while still having a managable commute.

The places most at risk for attracting NYC's poor are cheap satellite cities like Newark, Paterson, Irvington, Elizabeth, Hempstead, Yonkers, etc. Since they have tons of low-cost rentals, good public transit, similar environment as poor NYC areas, close to NYC but too far to gentrify...it's a perfect storm.

I have a special place in my <3 for the town I grew up in, North Bergen NJ (in Hudson County). Although I came to find out just very recently that the public swimming pool I spent most of my childhood summers at was closed down because it was built over a toxic waste dump from an old oil refinery!

I love Bronxville... Excellent town, schools and beautiful homes.

Also, love Riverdale... Some NJ towns that are close to NYC that are beautiful are: Alpine, Demarest, Englewood Cliffs (nice downtown area), Summit.

I personally also prefer Westchester and Ct... Only because LI is getting super congested. The only areas i would consider to move to would be along the North Shore.

I thought so too until I went to fleetwood in search of bargain prices.

Is it, in fact, the case that living in Westchester County will defnitively make one avoid being affected by hurricanes? Do you think that climate/weather sciientists concur with that statement? What about tornadoes?

Hurricanes are formed over sea over the warm moist waters of the Atlantic Oceans near the equator. In addition hurricane lose a significant amount of power over land. Long Island and NYC will bear the brunt of the storm before it reaches Westchester county (it will be a weaker storm). I didn't say Westchester could avoid global warming, I was given a choice to compare preferable suburb areas near NYC and I list a reason to consider Westchester county over Long Island.

Tornadoes are more common in the Midwest and not in the northeast coast.
