The commuter town.

Though Croton is farther north to drive than many of the southern Westchester towns, the express train makes this town easily accessible.  At 46 min to the City, it maintains a savvy vibe in a warm and friendly community. Characterized by its rustic homes and hippie vibe, Croton is made up of artists, musicians and many working professionals. During the day it is a sleepy town made up of mostly kids walking through the Village and keeping each other company. The kid-friendly destinations include the Blue Pig (open seasonally), ‘The Studio’ and the local playgrounds. 

Hidden costs to consider: Train commute, taxes (while lower than many Westchester towns, they are on par with the nearby river towns) vary based on size and location of the home you purchase.
