From its close-knit, tree-lined neighborhoods and re-energized downtown to the estates and clubs of its shoreline, New Rochelle lives up to its nickname, "The Queen City of the Sound."
Peak trains to Grand Central run about 31 minutes long. New Rochelle also provides easy access to I-95 and the Hutchinson River Parkway.
New Rochelle's downtown is one of Westchester's only major urban centers. It features a number of renowned restaurants, a fabulous library, and is home to Iona College and New Roc City.
Settled by the refugee Huguenots from France in 1688, New Rochelle maintains a significant French population to this day.
