Shopping is plentiful in the Source at White Plains, The Galleria, City Center, Bloomingdales and the Westchester Mall. White Plains has beautiful residential areas such as the Highlands, Rosedale, Gedney Farms, Prospect Park and Soundview, reflecting both a suburban and urban feel. White Plains offers many choices in housing, including rentals, co-op apartments, condominiums, townhouse communities, one of which is gated, and single-family homes.

Recreational venues include the Ebersole Ice Rink, the public Maple Moor Golf Course, the Westchester Golf Range and Saxon Woods Park with the largest pool in Westchester and a miniature golf range.
