Why I Love Downtown New Rochelle

Why I Love Downtown New Rochelle

Not only do I live in downtown New Rochelle but I shop and dine here too. 

Yes, I live in downtown New Rochelle. I am a proud apartment owner and feel the need to brag about the area. 

For the sake of this article, I am not going to focus on the exciting new developments coming to Downtown New Rochelle. If you want to read about that click here

First and foremost, what I love the most is how I can walk to some great restaurants, the movies, a coffee shop and the train station. Plus, I can walk to a pharmacy and go grocery shopping too. Everything is within 10 minutes walking from my place. 

I also have the option of ordering take out or having food delivered to my place. I can even walk to the library or sit at the park. 

And if needed, I can walk over to the local hardware store, Modern Hardware & Paint, and pick up things to tend to my place when needed. For instance when I was painting my condo I ran over there to get some painting products like painter's tape and some brushes. But they have so much more than that. For instance they have things tools like hammers, nails and bolts; they have salt for when it snows; they have light bulbs and so much more. 

My favorite place to sit down and enjoy a coffee, hot chocolate, tea, lunch, or a snack is at R Patisserie Cafe & Tea Boutique. I love this place because it is such a warm and welcoming place with great products and super nice people. 

I also enjoy eating at Modern Restaurant and Lounge, Alvin and Friends, Gnarly Vine, Coromandel Cuisine of India, La Herradura, and Starlite II Restaurant. But there are so many more options, from Pizza to Taverns and even Peruvian and Carribean options. Not to mention the many deli's and take out places.
