Cross River presents a rare opportunity for an idyllic lifestyle among luscious greenery, pristine bodies of water, and peaceful surroundings.
The tiny hamlet of Cross River, New York is located within the sprawling town of Lewsiboro, in Westchester County. Situated on the border of Connecticut, the area is noted for its chevron shape, which is due to an early border dispute. Although Cross River doesn't possess its own train station, New York City can be accessed via the Metro-North Railroad at the nearby Katonah or Golden's Bridge stations in about 1.5 hours.
The area is known for its sprawling fields, rolling hills, seven pristine lakes, and its equestrian enthusiasm. In fact, it's not unusual for land owners to grant trail access to horseback riders.
Cross River is also known for its parks, including Westchester's biggest park, Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, a park that features many trails, campsites and a Trailside Museum. The entrance to this park is located off Route 121, in Cross River. Other parks include Onatru Farm, a park that include tennis courts, walking trails, and other playing fields, as well as the Lewisboro Town Park which features ice skating, tennis courts, walking trails, ball fields, and a municipal pool.
