The second largest city in Westchester County, New Rochelle has been dubbed the “Queen City of the Sound.” This area showcases picturesque harbors and scenic ocean views as familiar sights along the city’s nine miles of shorefront on Long Island Sound. While New Rochelle also supports limited light industry, most of the residents are commuters into New York City, which is only 25 minutes by train. Once a popular summer resort, today New Rochelle is a well-diversified and highly populated community. Well-known for its innovative, progressive public schools that include a French-style high school, the city also boasts nearly half a dozen private schools and is home to Iona College and the College of New Rochelle. Recreational highlights include acres of lush parkland, nature centers, lakes and beaches, hiking and biking trails, and bridle paths.
