Thought of the Day
My main reason for adopting literature as a profession was that, as the author is never seen by his clients, he need not dress respectably.

Pound Ridge

Westchester County

Pound Ridge is located in the northeastern section of Westchester County. Pound Ridge borders both New York and Connecticut with New Canaan and Stamford on its eastern and southern borders, and the New York towns of Bedford and North Castle on its western border with South Salem to the north. Pound Ridge is characterized by rugged landscape, rock outcroppings and rugged cliffs. Nowhere in the town's 23 square miles is there even a traffic light!

Scotts Corners is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) located in the town of Pound Ridge in Westchester County. Scotts Corners is home to several festivals throughout the year, encouraging a wonderful sense of community. Festivals in Scotts Corners include:
    Antiques, Bakers, Farmers, and Crafts - Outdoor Markets
    Fine Arts Festival
    Pound Ridge Car Show
    Pound Ridge Harvest Festival

Although rural and countrified, Pound Ridge is only one hour from New York City by car, 30 minutes to White Plains, and Pound Ridge is accessible to the Merritt Parkway in both New Canaan and Stamford; and Interstate 684 in Bedford, New York.

Fine Dining

Scenic Spots
In many parts of Pound Ridge, the rugged landscape seems to have been only gently altered by humans since the glaciers receded. In contrast to some of its neighbors, the town, Westchester's smallest in population density, has marked its topography with stone walls and narrow county roads. While driving through Pound Ridge you will often pass brooks, ponds, and lakes. Pound Ridge has 2 and 3 acre zoning, with many homes on much larger property, and is home to large tracts of undeveloped land such as the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation.

Pound Ridge and Lewisboro are home to the 4,315 acre Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, Westchester County’s largest park. The Ward Pound Ridge Reservation is divided in area between both Pound Ridge and Lewisboro. The northern one-third of the park is in Lewisboro and the remaining two-thirds of the park are in Pound Ridge. With its varied terrain and landscapes and miles of wooded trails, the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation provides a variety of activities in all seasons, including: picnics by lovely brooks, hiking for the beginner or the advanced hiker with many excellent and challenging hiking paths, lean-to camping, fishing and cross-country skiing.
