Ridgefield to White Plains is like 40-45 mins.
Perfectly normal and typical commute in America.
And 1/2 the time of commuting from Westchester to NYC

Yes, you are correct. Why did I type Mount Pleasant? I must have been channeling Valhalla in the middle of the night.

Why wouldn't you expect a kid to build stone cairns in Yorktown, or did I miss something else in your post? My son built one such cairn in our woods (with his grandmother, who was a cairn lover). My local community association waged a war--and won--to keep the town from removing the stone walls running alongside every road, something you will see throughout Yorktown Heights and southern Yorktown.

Just another subtle dig at Yorktown in a blatant attempt to reactivate the northeast vs northwest Westchester wars. Where's john70 when we need him?

Everytime i drive around the Yorktown area, it reminds me of Rockland County. 1960s and 1970s split level galore. I envison the faux paneled walls, shag carperting and the putrid aroma of cigarette smoke and liverwurst. In other words, it reminds me of my youth. Have not seen a green Vega with wood trim yet however.

Oh please. That's like saying Bedford Hills is nothing but a strip of big box stores and multifamily houses because of 117 and the hamlet. Try taking a drive through the southern two thirds of Yorktown.

Just the kind of town to spend two million bucks on a house...

I actually like liverwurst. Especially on rye with red onions and mustard. Vegas, not so much.

They still make Liverwurst? Its one of those tastes that brings back vivid memories of youth. Like the smell of a new tee shirt with a fresh dukes of hazzard iron on decal of the whole gang...including Daisy!!

Bo Duke - John Schneider is from Mount Kisco after all....
