RadioGuy93 - Thanks!

I'm sure it will be painful for those few months, but over a few years it's a small amount of inconvenience. I'd love to be walking distance to a tran station (within a mile)... but that seems tough if you want a decent amount of land.

If you want a Norman Rockwell town. Pville is the place. Chappaqua is a very nice town. But it is a very large and spread out.

You really cannot go wrong with either. Pville residents rarely head into Chappaqua unless you bank at BofA. If you live in CHappaqua you will be in Pville all the time to go shopping, movies and food & drink. Pleasantville is the center of the area i.e. Armonk, Chappaqua, Briarcliff and Westlake school district (i.e. Thornwood, Hawthorne and Mt Pleasant)

I have to disagree with that. Pleasantville holds its own as the "nightlife" destination for this part of the area (Burns, Iron Horse, etc.) but it's hardly the commercial center.

As far as every day sundries and groceries go, the Key Food in P'ville is pretty bad, and a ton of people who live in P'ville go to Thornwood (Shoprite) or Chappaqua (D'Ags) or Mt. Kisco (Target, A&P, Mrs. Greens, Shoprite) for groceries.

All these respective areas have their own "centers" as you put it. If you live in Thornwood or Hawthorne you shop at either Rose Hill or Town Center, not P'ville. Depending on where you live in Armonk, you either go to the local strip on main street in Armonk (A&P) or drive to Pleasantville (Key Food) or Mt. Kisco. Depending on where you live in Briarcliff, you either shop on their local strip (Mrs. Green's) or drive to Ossining (C-Town, Stop & Shop).

^^ I have to agree, and in fact I would say the Key Foods in P-ville is hands down the WORST supermarket I have encountered in 3 years on the east coast - inexplicably it is both nasty AND high priced! Even the old A&P in Millwood is better option. P-ville has many things to offer, but decent grocery shopping is not one of them.

p.s. D'Ags closed permanently after Hurricane Irene and a Walgreens is apparently going in there (ugh). The town is now trying to find another feasible location for a grocery store. http://www.thedailychappaqua.com/new...ua-supermarket

How about the old Boders location in Mt. Kisco for a Whole Foods?! I'm sure there are enough people in Northern Westchester to make it worth while.

**** and AP in Armonk are both closed I think. I forget that Shoprite is not pville since it is right over the boarder. Yes everyone does goto Shoprite. mad house.

I meant more for strolling the streets and enjoying the village. Pville will have more to offer than Chappaqua. Plus the location is central to all those towns, parkways and routes into those larger chain towns like WP and Mt Kisco.

C-town in Ossining? I think the only thing that place is known for is selling beer to minors in the 80's and 90's

Never heard of Wegmans. Is that a grocery store or an organic food marketplace? For that, I go to Stew Leonard's in Yonkers.

My husband is in love with Wegmen's, from his time in Buffalo. It's an upstate NY-based chain, I believe. They have a couple within an hour's drive, but that's pretty far for groceries!
