White Plains is a thriving suburban city north of New York City in the center of southern Westchester County.

Home to the County Seat, government buildings and courts, White Plains is located a short distance from the rural villages to the north and New York City to the south. As the birthplace of the State of New York, the city is dotted with historical sites and exhibits, several on the National Register of Historic Places.

A building boom and renaissance in recent years has strengthened the reputation of White Plains as a premier suburban locale, and “the place to be” in Westchester County. A revitalized downtown district, offering an abundance of first-rate entertainment options, cultural activities and fine restaurants as well as an active nightlife, has helped make this city a sought-after destination on the east coast. The population of White Plains soars to more than 200,000 during the day as office workers, shoppers and visitors arrive. As one of the top suburban business centers in the nation, with the county’s largest concentration of retail activity, the city is a corporate hub. Often called the “City in the Park,” White Plains has taken steps to preserve its open green space and tree-lined neighborhoods, ensuring that it retains its small-town feel.

White Plains’ desirability is found in the myriad opportunities it provides for working, shopping and playing. The city offers an efficient public transportation system and a wide range of housing options, is home to a culturally diverse mix of people, and serves as the gateway to both metropolitan and upstate New York. From the latest in high-rise apartment complexes to small estates, modest single family homes and condominiums, White Plains offers something for almost everyone. This unique city has successfully combined clean, green, suburban living with the convenience of urban amenities.
