For westchester residents, where do you usually go to get your errand done?

Like tax, real estate, consultants, business like errands?

White plain or New Rochelle? Or do you venture into the city?

Yes. Lots of other places too. For what it's worth, I don't regard taxes, consultants etc as "errands." Going to the dry cleaners or bakery is an errand.

Business consultants can be found in every town. You don't necessarily need to go to a larger town or city.

ah yes, i meant when you need to visit a professional for advise or consulting, do you stick to your own town or do you venture out to a "city" like town.

I am trying to figure out a place to open my business. The smaller affluent towns have very limited number of spacing and vacancy so i was looking at white plains or new Rochelle.

Wanted to see as a resident where you would mostly go to get things done.

Also looking for a "safe" neighborhood, diversity is fine, but i am not looking for areas where at night all the people come loiter in the streets.

What do you guys think of New Rochelle?

I tend to venture out to the city of White Plains, Rye and Mount Kisco. I think White Plains would be "center" to a lot of business dealings.

Do you need a store front or office space? Hutchinson Metro Center in the Bronx would have all the amenities that a business tenant would want if you are after office space. It's also near the #6 subway so if you need something critical like legal and accounting services, you can always go to Manhattan.

New Rochelle doesn't have a great reputation. If you're catering to an upscale/affluent clientele I'd avoid it. People go all over the place. Don't over think it by trying to be hyper-local unless there's some particular necessity for doing so. Set up in White Plains or maybe the Rt 119 corridor.

looking for an office space and catering to upper scale affluent clients, so i think they will avoid new rochelle for its reputation.

I am looking for a good local downtown but also big enough that outside towns come and visit.

Westchester is a big county and many of us up norht would never drive as far as WP or NR to do anything. But I never go to a large area for the things you mention. My accountant is in my town, my real estate agent was in Tarrytown and when I need business services, I try to find a local small business in or near my town to keep the spending local.
