Hartsdale-White Plains, New York - Facts & Figures
Hartsdale is a small hamlet located on the Bronx River just 20 miles north of New York City, close enough to easily take the train into Grand Central Terminal. Hartsdale can claim two "firsts," the first dog cemetery was begun in 1896 by veterinarian Samuel Johnson, and the first Carvel Ice Cream store opened in 1934. Its historical economy was agrarian, but that changed when the rail line opened, making it more of a commuter village. Hartsdale looks completely different today, with no remaining farmland, residents from many different ethnic groups, and an entire Japanese section of town.
Nearby is the City of White Plains. White Plains offers a similar commuter experience to Hartsdale, but is an overall larger community. A combination of city life and suburbia exist here, with good schools and a thriving housing market offered in conjunction with an active art and business scene. White Plains is home to Arts Westchester, the White Plains Performing Arts Center, White Plains Outdoor Arts Festival, and the Music Conservatory of Westchester. The city can claim many major companies who make their base in White Plains, such as Dannon, Nine West, Vimeo, ITT, and Heineken. The companies provide the foundation of the town's economy.
