So let’s get
started!!! We have a lot of ground to cover!!!
First, lets talk about
New Rochelle…where I live.
New Rochelle has it
all and its conveniently placed along the Long Island Sound. It
borders Pelham, Eastchester, Scarsdale, Larchmont, and Mamaroneck. Plus, it’s a
hop skip and a jump away from Manhattan, Connecticut, and its even pretty close
to New Jersey. And it’s also close to some attractions such a few water parks
and shopping malls. Click
here to see a map a map of New Rochelle.
And for those who don’t know New Rochelle also sits a couple miles from New
York City's city limits (NYC) thanks to the Bronx. As you may or may not
know, the 5 boroughs are all considered NYC, and New Rochelle is about 2 miles
from the Bronx city limits, AKA NYC.
New Rochelle is less
than twenty miles from Grand Central Station.

New Rochelle is from places.
And as you may know, I
am from the South, Alabama to be specific, and I just love telling people I’m
that close to the city. It’s really nice to say I can be there by car or train
Take a look, driving
from my house to my husband’s work typically takes me 35-50 minutes (depending
on traffic). He works in the Flat Iron District. And if I opt to take the train
into the city it takes me at least 42 minutes to get to Grand Central. And
that’s making all local stops. Not too bad, right?
and New Rochelle train station is also an Amtrak Station.
New Rochelle also
spans a lot of area too. It is really pretty large. I believe it is about 10
miles from top to bottom and about 2 miles from side to side on one side. New
Rochelle’s shape is like a triangle.
Because New Rochelle
is so big we can fit a lot of attractions and fun things to do here too. For
instance, New Rochelle has been a really nice place for me to go on a bike ride
or a walk. One of my favorite places to go walk is along Pinebrook. But I also
enjoy walking along North AVE or around the New Rochelle High School Lake, and
I also enjoy walking along some of the trails or along some of the parks (i.e.
Ward Acres and The Leatherstocking Trail). Plus, New Rochelle has a really nice
dog park (Ward Acres) and a few beautiful lakes, fantastic beach clubs and a
few colleges and universities.
And the last thing I
would like to brag about is that New Rochelle has a large movie theater, many restaurants,
a couple hotels, few supermarkets, an
indoor amusement park, and more. Here are some other things New Rochelle has...
