We love our little village, especially on Valley Terrace. Friendly neighbors, who care about each other. Block parties, Halloween fun, beautiful Christmas decor and great schools. We are also next to Port Chester with the Capitol Theater and over 125 restaurants. Greenwich is right up the street and we have our own beach in Rye Town Park. It's a very safe community with lots of kids and a nice mix of seniors and young families. Great cops and fireman and EMS. Plus we have some beautiful parks. It's a really nice community!

I can’t say enough great things about Rye Brook. Great town, people, schools and more! It’s amazing how much progress my kindergartener has made this year, from barely knowing all his letters to reading!
The schools are excellent but diversity is lacking. Similarly, neighbors tend to be pompous and not welcoming.
