"Affordable town with lots of recreational activities"

Part of Yonkers in Westchester County, Dunwoodie is a great choice for young professionals who are looking for a convenient commute and diverse recreational activities. Dunwoodie residents have access to the Dunwoodie golf course and very nicely maintained parks. The neighbors are friendly and there are a lot of community events. Dunwoodie also has Yonkers' "Little Italy," so you will find a huge variety of Italian restaurants here. A lot of the residents are into sports, so they go running at Tibbetts Brook County Park or play other sports together. Home to St. Joseph's Seminary, the town is also close to Sarah Lawrence College, so you will see some students living here. Housing in Dunwoodie is very affordable, so you get a lot of young people here. Another great aspect of Dunwoodie is that it is in close proximity of two major hospitals, so you see a lot of health care professionals and medical school students here as well. One negative aspect of Dunwoodie is that the town's safety rating isn't all that great. That's not to say that it's unsafe though; most of the crimes here are nonviolent crimes such as car theft.
  • Relatively low housing costs
  • Diverse recreational activities
  • Fairly easy commute to NYC
  • Not the safest area in Westchester
