"Eat at an Old Colonial Cotton Mill and More in Eastchester's Tuckahoe, NY!"

Tuckahoe, of the 5-star Tackahoe Union Free School District in Eastchester, NY of Westchester County, is the less-expensive, but no less beneficial, villages of Eastchester. Neighbor to its affluent sibling Bronxville, Tuckahoe still has a lot to offer at less than half the price of homes in Bronxville, making it the prime place for middle-class families and students of Bronxville's Sarah Lawrence College and other schools in the area.

It's also a great community, as there's a wonderful Community Center which offers sports activities, Camp Quest, Girl's Softball, Zumba, Little League, Boy Scouts and Defensive Driving Classes in Summer from mid-July to the 1st of August. Tuckahoe Library offers Teen Performer's Showcases, so that Tuckahoe Teens can show off their talents in a public atmosphere and be proud of themselves for their hard creative work. The Community Center also takes Senior Citizens on day trips like the Bonatnical Gardens, where you can see Claud Monet's amazing work of the garden in Giverny, and there's Pizza Luncheons and Bingo nights as well.

In town you'll find neighborhood staples such as Dunkin' Donuts and CVS, as well as unique stores such as Verano Boutqiue, the Crestwood Shoe Service, Fastframe (a customizing frame store) and the quaint Tucahoe-based Antiques Shop, Consign On The Square. Tuckahoe also has its own Severino Grocery Store, and greater Eastchester has a Stop & Shop, as well as an A&P in neighboring Bronxville. For unique eats in Tuckahoe, try out the Old Stone Mill at 2 Scarsdale Road, which is actually an old historic, 1803 cotton mill! While the food is expensive, you'll love the friendly staff and lovely, unique, old-fashioned feel and décor of the place, and there isn't another one like it in this town, or perhaps anywhere!
