R5 Television Shows Set in Westchester County

The Draper and Francis families in Rye and Ossining from AMC’s Mad Men are hardly the only fictional TV families living in Westchester. Yes, you might also know that Maude, from the eponymous ’70s sitcom, lived in Tuckahoe, but did you know that Mrs. Garrett and the girls from The Facts of Life claimed 914 as their area code? Their fictional Eastland female boarding school was located in Peekskill. And, years earlier, the Petries of the popular 1960s The Dick Van Dyke Show lived in New Rochelle. The show’s main character, played by Van Dyke, was Rob Petrie, a writer for a television variety show who lived with his family at 148 Bonnie Meadow Road. Rob was based on series creator Carl Reiner, who lived—fusing reality with art—at 48 Bonnie Meadow Road.
