best suburb New York 2003 - MAMARONECK
A main drag out of the '50s filled with mom-and-pop stores, with nary a Star-bucks in sight. French at Le Provençal or Italian at Piccolo Molina, a movie at the old playhouse, and beers at Frank's Place. Racial diversity and a park on the water. All this, and a 39-minute commute to Grand Central. Suddenly, the burbs don't feel so foreign, thanks to MAMARONECK. If only our friends would move here too.
