North Salem is located only fifty miles north of New York City at the northern end of Westchester County and shares boundaries with Connecticut and Putnam County. Many residents travel to Manhattan daily via Metro North from the Croton Falls or Purdys stations, and I-684 is also nearby. The town is comprised of four hamlets: Croton Falls, Purdys, Salem Center and North Salem. You’ll find the most affordable homes in Croton Falls and Purdys, where the Metro North stations are located. Salem Center and North Salem feature many large estate properties.
Local amenities include two spacious town parks. One has 16 acres of sports fields, tennis courts, playgrounds, and picnic areas, and the other features over 1,000 acres for camping, fishing, ice skating, hiking, and row-boat rentals. Titicus Reservoir is also open for fishing, and golfers enjoy two 9-hole courses in town.
South Salem is a welcoming little hamlet in the greater town of Lewisboro on the Connecticut border. It’s still considered a rural community, yet you can easily get to NYC using a free shuttle from Spring Street to the Metro-North station in Katonah, about 15 minutes away.
Potential home buyers can choose from a wide range of options including condominiums and single-family homes, including older colonials and new construction.
The hamlet boasts a post office, town hall, historic tavern, a wine and spirit shop, antique store, two gas stations, a dry cleaners, and several churches.
South Salem is home to Lake Truesdale, an 83-acre man-made lake with two private beaches. There are also four town parks and a gigantic town pool.
