Westfield is the classic small town. It's quiet and has a nice main street. There is a large number of families and elderly people which creates a very homely place to be. The area is safe as I have been out by myself at 3 am multiple times with no problems. The local elementary and high school is average because of their aging building and diminishing class sizes. Recently, the main street has begun a resurgence and many of the empty buildings have been filled.

Westfield is a lively town in Chautauqua County. Nearby schools include the Westfield Academy and Chautauqua Lake Central School. There is a Tops, Dollar Tree, Mcdonalds, 711, and other retail stores and shops.
Westfield is a beautiful little small town with lots of history. Over the last few years, Main Street has come alive with new shops and restaurants. Smack dab in between Lake Erie and Chautauqua Lake, Westfield is a thriving tourist town in the summers and quiet in the winters.
