The Not-So-Definitive Westchester Fatherhood Hall Of Fame

If everyone in the county knew your dad, he might make this list—Most Valuable PB&J-Maker, perhaps? But, for now, we’re honoring the following notable names.  

Most Enterprising

John D. Rockefeller

The tycoon’s heirs, many of whom reside near John D’s former Sleepy Hollow estate, continue to perpetuate the patriarch’s influence.

Most Wholesome

Dick Van Dyke

Rob Petrie set the standard high for exemplary role-model dads in the ’60s as star of The Dick Van Dyke Show, set in suburban New Rochelle. 

Most Stylish

Don Draper

Childrearing may not be in the ad man’s nature, but the former Ossining guy’s got cool down.  

Most Rock ‘n’ Roll 

Steven Tyler

Liv Tyler famously learned the Yonkers native was her biological father at age 11. The 66-year-old Aerosmith frontman still hasn’t quite settled down. 

Most Popular

Bill Clinton 

The Chappaqua resident may be Mr. Hillary now, but dad to Chelsea is still the most likeable guy on the block. 

Most Enduring 

Bruce Jenner 

With a brood of 10 (Kardashian stepkids included), the Mount Kisco-born former Olympian deserves some peace of mind during his—televised—separation from wife Kris.

Most (Emotionally) Improved 

David Letterman

The funnyman resisted fatherhood until he was 56, but has since opened up about it helping his depression. We hope retirement allows him more family time in North Salem.
