White Plains is the 44th best place to live in the U.S., according to Money magazine’s annual list of the 100 top places with populations between 50,000 and 300,000.
Money had this to say:
“Only a 35-minute train ride from the Big Apple, White Plains is popular with commuters. But the seat of Westchester County is no slouch in the jobs department, with a bunch of large corporate offices (including the newly refurbished and ultra-chic headquarters of Heineken U.S.), an entrepreneurial spirit (it’s the birthplace of Mark Zuckerberg), and top-test-scoring kids. When not working, folks like to try out the city’s new bike paths, practice their swing at one of three golf courses, and jog on the trails at Silver Lake Preserve. One caveat: The cost of living can be high.”
