Chestnut Ridge

Chestnut Ridge, NY is one of the tri-state, NYC area’s little secrets. It is world famous in natural living and Anthroposophical circles, and has the quickest commuter express bus to NYC in the County. People come from all over the world to live specifically in Chestnut Ridge. And it is bursting at the seams with interesting people – Why?

Here’s a list of some of our favorite things about “The Ridge”:

The “Lost Eichlers”

Dexter Park – Iconic Mid-Century Modern Architect Joseph Eichler purchased the property of Chestnut Ridge’s Dexter Park neighborhood to build his only development outside of California. He ran into roadblocks with $ and building codes after only building three of his unique homes. (They remain the only 3 Eichler homes outside of California.) Another developer continued building Eichler-inspired mid-century style homes throughout Dexter Park throughout the 60s.
