Located in the southern section of Westchester, Rye has long maintained a reputation for its old-fashioned approach to city life. There are no major department stores to be found; instead the town’s retail base is made up of small boutiques, restaurants, art houses and museums. This “mom and pop” attitude gives the city the warm reputation it is known for.
Rye offers a very popular variety of recreational activities. The city operates four recreational facilities and the exclusive Rye Golf Club includes a meticulously-maintained 18-hole golf course. Rye Golf Club is just one of several country clubs in the area.
The city’s ideal location includes a two-mile stretch of shoreline along the Long Island Sound, which provides a myriad of activities for residents. The Rye Marina is always a popular attraction and the environment-minded community provides acres of undeveloped land.
The Rye City School District is home to three elementary schools, one middle school, one high school and one alternative high school. All three of Rye’s elementary schools are New York State Schools of Excellence and National Ribbon Schools of Excellence.
Rye is in a highly coveted location, just a short 35 minute Metro-North train ride to mid-town Manhattan. Auto commuters will find quick access to the New York State Thruway, the Saw Mill River Parkway, Route 9A and the Sprain Brook Parkway.
