New Rochelle Makes Money’s Top 100

Like White Plains, New Rochelle has been ranked in Money magazines top 100 small cities to live in America with a ranking of number 82. I am not surprised. New Rochelle (of Dick van Dyke show fame to those of you who have never been) is on the Long Island Sound, is home to Iona College, has a fantastic down town, and some really gorgeous neighborhoods with jaw dropping pre war architecture. We have a great listing here that I expect to sell any day.

Driving through some of those old neighborhoods off North Avenue takes your breath away. Here are some random shots.

Glen island Park is a popular waterfront park on the Long Island sound where they have a marina and crew regattas. The choice of restaurants is terrific, both in New Roc city, the new downtown retail complex, and older sections of the place. There is a huge variety of homes here, from mansions to starter homes. 

I have blogged about New Rochelle previously, and it is worth reading up.
