There is a difference between "rich" and "wealth". The towns in Westchester are very rich (Bronxville, Scarsdale, Rye, Chappaqua). The towns in Fairfield County are often very old money that have been in the family for generations (Greenwich, New Canaan, Darien). Inheriting country club memberships, trust funds, the family beach "cottage" on Long Island or Massachusetts, large sailing yachts. This is changing however as the noveau riche are discovering CT's lower taxes.

...those two villages. The Village of Bronxville (1 square mile) has an approximate population of 6500, and the Village of Scarsdale (6.6 square miles) has an approximate population of 17,000.

There really isn't an in-between option that makes for a quicker rail commute to NYC than what Stamford's express trains have to offer. I would say that if you are working in downtown Stamford your best bet is to live close to downtown and then you will be able to take advantage of Stamford's train station when you go into the city.

White Plains has express trains to NYC as well.
