Living in Westchester

Half an hour from Manhattan yet a world away, Westchester County offers the diversity and culture of New York City with a somewhat slower pace of daily life and fewer crowds. Among the notable people who have called Westchester County home are composer Aaron Copland, patriot Thomas Paine, novelist Washington Irving, former First Lady Barbara Bush, first Chief Justice of the United States John Jay, and former President Bill Clinton and Senator Hillary Clinton.

Our location attracts talented students who prefer a suburban lifestyle but want easy access to the New York metropolitan area. Here, they enjoy rolling hills and downtown streets – abundant sites, great shopping and a picturesque setting that makes their time at New York Medical College an experience they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.
