This thread is so helpful. We are looking for a suburb with great schools and a quick nyc commute that feels more urban. We aren’t house people , so we’d prefer a condo or apartment. Pelham seems like it would fit our needs, so we will visit soon. Can anyone recommend a good realtor? Thank you!

Do you know how much NYAC membership costs in Pelham?

I don't think you'll need a realtor for rentals in Pelham. I would just use Zillow or Trulia. There are some nice apartments near Pelham CC (915 Wynnewood). There are also condos on 1st street next to the train, however I don't typically see them for rent.

NYAC price can vary. Amenities are offered piecemeal. If you are 35+, have a family, and want to use the full access to the pool and field house, you are probably looking at ~$8k/yr. I think one-time initiation is in the neighborhood if $10k

Thanks for the information! The NYAC cost is pretty steep, more than we would be be able to pay. I'm wondering if maybe Pelham/Westchester is too pricey for us. Do most residents belong to NYAC or the country club?

Generally speaking, all of Westchester is expensive. Same goes for lower CT.

The NYAC has a fairly expansive membership; you’ll find people from all over Westchester and Manhattan. Pelham CC is predominantly Pelham residents. All private golf clubs are going to be in the neighborhood of $1k/mo at the low end. The more prestigious ones (Winged Foot, Westchester CC, Quaker Ridge, etc) will be north of that with sizable initiation fees.

Hard to say what percentage of Westchester residents belong to a private club. You definitely don’t need to belong somewhere to meet people.

All things considered, the NYAC is a pretty solid deal if you live nearby and don’t play golf (especially if you hang around the area during the summer months). It has an expansive waterfront campus, a great pool area, brand new gym, and a huge clubhouse.

Thanks for this thread - I am currently trying to buy a co-op in Queens and getting frustrated with the boards I've dealt with. I recently decided that if the current deal falls through, I'm throwing in the towel and looking in lower Westchester.

Pelham is my target town, and this was very helpful information that confirmed that choice

Any recommendations for finding co-ops?

Westchester must have changed politically.

When I was growing up there, it seemed like everyone was Republican. But that was a long time ago. Just my 2 cents. Don't want to hijack this post.
