Briarcliff Manor offers it all with a population of about 8,000 and an abundance of beauty in both landscape and architecture.
Briarcliff Manor is located 30 miles North of Manhattan. Commuters have easy access to the city with the Metro-North Railroad Hudson Line. From the Scarborough stop, the commute is about 42 minutes by train to Grand Central Terminal.
Over time, Briarcliff Manor has attracted an affluent crowd to its breathtaking landscape. This grand village has become a treasure trove of elegant homes and architectural delights, hidden among tree-lined country hills. Sprawling estates with majestic mansions mingle with humble, yet charming, split-level homes.
“A Village Between Two Rivers,” is the village motto since it is noted for its ideal location between the Hudson and Pocantico Rivers. Within the village there are enough parks and wildlife trails to satisfy any outdoor enthusiast. William W. Law Memorial Park, located in the center of the village, provides a pool, 4 tennis courts, a skating rink, and a pond for the enjoyment of the public. While Briarcliff Manor is not a hub of retail activity, it does have a number of restaurants, cafes, and specialty markets.
