"A wooded community with a mall - the best of both worlds"

Yorktown Heights is beautiful and spread out with lots of woodland and farmland. The Teatown Lake Reservation is close and has 730 acres to hike and explore. There's another 300 acres between the Turkey Mountain Nature Preserve and the Kitchawan Preserve so you can imagine the kind of scenery resident's of Yorktown Heights wake up to every morning.

It's a great place to raise kids. The school system here is solid and the teachers do their best to modify their curriculum based on each child's needs.There's a little museum on the top floor of the Yorktown Community Cultural Center which recreates some of the history in the area. It's very small and just a curiosity for adults but kids seem to enjoy it. Adjacent to the Cultural Center is a gazebo where an annual summer concert series is performed.

I can't say that Yorktown Heights is the most exciting place in the world but it is full of some friendly and kind people. There's a mall in town which is a nice change of pace from the woods not to mention convenient. It's a little too far to commute to New York City every day, about 20 minutes to the nearest train station then a 45 minute ride, but it's still close enough for the weekends.
