Purdys was named after one of its original settlers. Mr. Thomas Purdy, one of his descendants, had lived in the hamlet until the late 1970s.
The small hamlet of Purdys, New York is located within the town of North Salem, in idyllic Westchester County. Since Purdys is situated right off of Interstate 684, Manhattan can be reached by car in just over one hour. Alternatively, commuters may opt to take the Metro North Railroad, which can be accessed right at the Purdy's station. Travel time to Grand Central Station is about one hour and twelve minutes.
Farms, fields, and orchards still characterize this idyllic countryside.
The privacy Purdys affords is reserved for those who enjoy its natural beauty, and prefer outdoor recreation, such as horseback riding, or the occasional fox hunt. Purdys is a well-preserved gem for any who crave a bucolic setting.
