Westchester County, commonly known as Westchester, is a county situated in the U.S. state of New York. Westchester became the first suburban area of its scale in the world to develop, predominantly due to the upper-middle class development of many communities in the late 19th century, and the subsequent rapid population growth. Westchester County is the fifth-wealthiest county in New York and ranks second after New York County in terms of highest median income per person. There are many amenities to enjoy in the area, including restaurants, bars, retail outlets and cafes. With the Hudson River bordering an area of the county, and countless parks, there is always somewhere to escape from the hustle and bustle of the busy city.
