Sitting on the border of New York and Connecticut, Armonk is a hamlet in the town of New Castle in Westchester County. With various companies’ (IBM, Swiss Re, M.E. Sharpe) headquarters located here, Armonk is able to keep property taxes lower than its Westchester neighbors, making it a desirable place for those looking to reduce their monthly costs. The land is hilly and filled with forests and boasts the highest point in Westchester county. There was a great deal of new construction in Armonk in the last few decades, creating a diverse housing stock of condos, town houses, and larger single-family homes, primarily north and west of the Armonk business district.
There is no train station in Armonk, but many commute via neighboring Chappaqua’s train station. The more challenging train commute to New York City helps to keep the town filled with more local workers.
