Northern Westchester refers to the upper portion of Westchester County, New York, a suburban area north of New York City. Lying north of Interstate 287/Cross Westchester Expressway, these communities are distinguished by distance from New York City and their more rural character from those of Southern Westchester. The area is notable for its general affluence and a high degree of a watershed for New York City. It is home to two major collection reservoirs supplying drinking water, the New Croton Reservoir and the Kensico Reservoir.
Northern Westchester is the county’s rural gem, with miles of open spaces; trails for hiking, biking, and exploring; lakes, streams, and rivers; excellent farm-to-table restaurants; and boutique shopping. It is an ideal location for an active outdoor getaway, and it is home to the 4,315-acre Ward Pound Ridge Reservation and a portion of the North County Trail.
Northern Westchester also features plenty of other recreational activities, such as Lewisboro’s golf courses and North Salem’s horse farms, and is the perfect setting for a peaceful country stroll along quiet roads and through lovely historic towns, such as Katonah with stylish boutiques and specialty stores. This “up county” locale is also home to sophisticated towns with a cosmopolitan feel, including Mount Kisco, unique shopping, fine dining, and attractions.

In New York, there are three types of political subdivisions (i.e., municipalities) of counties: cities, towns, and villages. While cities are incorporated entities, towns are not. However, areas in a town can incorporate; when this occurs, the resulting area is called a “village.” Villages have their additional level of government along with the town’s government the village lies within. Please note that sometimes a town contains a village with the same name; this village usually contains the town’s center.
