Are there significant differences between Rye and Rye brook?

Do the schools compare well to Scarsdale and Bronxville?

It does get a little confusing. Here's the quick summary:

There's Rye City, after Bronxville, Scarsdale, and maybe Irvington, the top school district in Westchester.

The surrounding areas are included in the township of Rye. This consists of:
Portchester
(part of) Mamaroneck
Rye Brook

The Mamaroneck section of Rye Town is also known as Rye Neck (school district); the other (half of Mamaroneck Village is in Mamaroneck Township. The school district for Rye Brook is called Blind Brook.

Rough comparison:
Rye City is wealthier and more prestigious than Rye Brook, although they are both very desirable.
Rye City is on the Metro North line; Rye Brook, north of Portchester, is not.
Rye City has lower property taxes (for comparable property value) than Rye Brook; although more of its properties are more expensive.
Rye Brook is a little quieter and more exurban in its feel.
Blind Brook High (Rye Brook) has a rep as a very jock-centered school, FWIW.
But both of these areas are well-off, quiet, safe suburban areas compared most other places you might live.

Blind Brook school district is also much smaller than Rye.

In Rye - kids belong to clubs and have beach houses
In Rye Brook - every kid goes away for the entire summer to camp

Besides the obvious class differences, the largest difference is train access. Rye Brook does not have a station, and the nearest one, Port Chester, doesn't have express trains.

Fewer people in Rye Brook commute to the city daily. In Rye, you are unlikely to be able to afford to live there in the 1st place if you don't.

I would be very comfortable choosing Rye Brook if my husband didn't commute long hours in the city. Houses are far cheaper than in Rye, and you don't get your town invaded by outsiders every June-September.
