The population of Chappaqua is mostly white, Jewish, and rich, although there are relatively significant numbers of Asian families living here. There is not much to do in town, with barely any shops, however, the "Chappaqua Crossing" between Chappaqua and Mount Kisco has more shops and places to go with friends. The school system here, Chappaqua Central School District, is very well put together, with high rankings and test scores. Many kids go to college after high school, and there's a lot of stress on students. Chappaqua has its own train station, and we are around one-hour train ride into New York City.

Chappaqua is very suburban, non diversified town. The taxes are extremely high because there's no large business to support it. Lived here for 30 years but moving on due to the high government interventions. Schools are okay, NOT the best if you're looking for special education. Nightlife? None.
Nice parks? Plenty
country club settings abound
no real restaurant activity but you can find good food in neighboring towns
Chappaqua is a tight-knit community where people care about their neighbors. The greatest testament to this is that a large number of people raised here move back to raise their own families. Fundraiser for those in need is sell out of seats. The majority of teachers at every level are passionate and genuinely thrilled to work with such motivated students. Kids stay in touch after high school, recall their childhood fondly and come back for alumni events and sporting events.
