Exploring the Community of Pound Ridge

Located in the eastern corner of Westchester County, Pound Ridge sits on the Connecticut border and is approximately a one-hour commute to Grand Central Station. Once on its quiet, tree-lined streets, it is easy to understand why residents have referred to their corner of the world as “God’s Country.” This lovely town has a rural feel. Uniquely, Pound Ridge does not have a single traffic light. It seems as if much of high-speed modern life has passed by the community, leaving it largely unspoiled.

This peaceful town with a well-preserved historic heritage attracts families and singles alike. Residents include a long list of celebrities, musicians and politicians, starting with Benny Goodman, who once composed a song titled “Pound Ridge.” The community has even been referred to as the Second Hollywood.
