Happy Day, Westchester! We have a lot to be thankful for.

Westchester, we have a lot to be thankful for. We are living in a stunningly beautiful corner of the world.

On one side of us, the Long Island Sound sparkles in the sun…on the other, the majestic Hudson River flows from the mountains above us to the ocean below. In between, there are countless magical places- parks, gardens and horse farms; bike trails, hiking paths, and sledding hills; lakes, rivers, and pools; historic landmarks, museums, and theaters.

We have unrivaled access to the arts, music, theater, education, and healthcare. We are a short drive or train-ride away from one of the greatest cities in the world. We are lucky, indeed!

In addition to the many things we are all likely to be thankful for this Thanksgiving- such as our families, friends and health – join me as I take a moment to be thankful for this rich and wonderful, fascinating and beautiful place in which we live.

Happy Day, Westchester!

  1. Hi, Any advice on cutting down a fresh Christmas tree in Westchester? Are we too late if we haven’t picked one out yet? Where should we go? – Emily
