This is a fun one. I was reading a post about Westchester being snobby and dma made an appearance!

You have so many great comments here and you even brought "the wife" into the mix.
Did you take a poll to get these facts?

Good thing you found Yorktown because it is the only safe town to be in!

Yes indeed! As a resident of Pound Ridge I guess I'm one of "those people." So, dma1250, it's best that you stay on your side of I-684 and we stay on ours.

This is fun to read just after you read my other quote from him.

Yes you are, I'm surprised they even allow people like you onto the internet.
Wait! We are in the village of Katonah so we are west of 684. Can we redraw the boundaries slightly? Ha.

Which just goes to show, even Katonah has an other-side-of-the-tracks. Still, we make an exception for Katonah. LOL

Ok thanks. Although I guess I shouldn't worry, dma already grouped Katonah in with you guys.

I hate walking to town. All these lawyers running around yelling I object and telling people they can't handle the truth. Don't get me started on their ilk. They are like rabid dogs.

It's the worst.

Editing to add "sarcasm".

How is this the case in Katonah? I sometimes eat in Katonah Restaurant for their good burgers and chilli after hiking weekends in Mianus River and hardly see anyone yelling. Can't even tell what those people's occupations are. The town seems to be a pleasant area and not somewhere I would avoid walking to.

Sorry I was being extremely sarcastic. We absolutely love being in the village and love the people here. I was responding to my quote of dma where he said Katonah and Bedford and those towns attract "lawyers and their ilk". I was just having fun with it.

Sorry for any confusion. I will reiterate: We love living in Katonah!
