sherry b dessert studio

French bistro fare can be had for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at this enduring eatery with an inviting garden patio.
Horace Greeley House/New Castle Historical Society
The former home of the man who helped found the Republican Party as well as the New-York Tribune (one of the widest read American newspapers during the mid-20th century) is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The New Castle Historical Society (Chappaqua is a hamlet in the Town of New Castle) purchased the house in 1998 and restored it by 2000.
New Castle Community Center
The New Castle Recreation and Parks Department manages this facility, offering classes ranging from yoga to tap dancing and women’s self defense plus preschool and senior programs.
Many Chappaqua denizens dress well due to this family-run clothier that offers top-quality fashions from upscale designers for him (Canali, Toscano, and Allegri) and for her (0039 Italy, Niu, and M. Missoni).
Chappaqua Village Market
Owners Tony Milazzo and son Vinny have been feeding residents of Chappaqua and the surrounding area prime meats, fresh produce and fish, local dairy, and baked goods (don’t miss the almond biscotti) for more than 40 years.
Always the Children
A go-to source for original children’s bedding, toys, wall accents, antique pieces, clothing, and gifts. Some picks: handcrafted wooden train bookends, animal blankies, and chenille hoodie sweaters.
Squires Family Clothing
The antithesis of a big-box clothing retailer, Squires sells recognizable brands for kids and adults and offers professional shoe/sneaker fitting, top-level tailoring on suits/pants, and free gift-wrapping.
For lunch, this café serves salads, soups, and pressed sandwiches made with local ingredients. SoCo Creamery micro-batch ice cream is for dessert.
