Buchanan in Westchester county, New York

Buchanan

The village of Buchanan, New York is located inside the town of Cortlandt, in northwestern Westchester County.

Among Cortlandt's more than 41,000 residents, a little more than 2,200 live within the boundaries of Buchanan. The area itself is a burgeoning suburban area. Many families have escaped to Buchanan to trade their tiny city apartments for more spacious single family homes and large backyards.

Many still commute to nearby Manhattan via the Metro-North Railroad. Passengers arrive at Grand Central Terminal in just over one hour.

Buchanan offers many outdoor parks for all ages. The Steven Herbert Memorial Skate Park, located within Cortlandt, provides skaters with half rails and quarter pipes. The Sprout Brook Park features 22 acres of outdoor space that includes a man-made lake for swimming, a volleyball court, and views of the Hudson Highways Gateway Park. Further swimming opportunities are found at the Charles J. Cook Recreation Center, which offers an Olympic-sized swimming pool. Other nearby attractions include the Shipwreck Golf Amusement Center, Cortland Beer Company, and the 1890 House Museum, a historic Gothic-style manor that is open for tours.

Buchanan is part of the Hendrick Hudson School District, which serves a diverse group of children. In recent years, the district has placed much emphasis on growth and improvement to their schools, both in the physical condition of the buildings, and in the quality of education.

The suburban atmosphere, and proximity to New York City make Buchanan an ideal setting.
