Hi, my husband and I along with our baby are considering moving to New Rochelle - just outside of Pelham. I think its the Columbus elementary school district. Can someone please describe this area as we're moving from out of state. We loved Pelham but can not afford what we want so now we're considering New Rochelle. We would like to be within walking distance to the Pelham train station. Thank you in advance!

You should really drive around the area before making a decision - it's very crowded, very blue-collar. A lot of two-family homes just north of Rt.1, two families and apartment buildings south of Rt.1.

Rt.1 is heavily traveled, and Interstate 95 cuts through. It's not awful, but it is congested.

My son went to Columbus Elementary 8 years ago for their Magnet School program in science and math. At the time it was a very good program, but I haven't paid attention to it since he left. Good luck.
