Get inEdit

By planeEdit

  • 1 Westchester County Airport (HPN IATA also known as White Plains Airport), 240 Airport Rd (3 miles NE of West Harrison), +1 914 995-4860 (airlines). The airport is served by five airlines and two scheduled charter airlines (America Eagle, Cape Air, Delta, Delta Connection, JetBlue, Reliant Air, Tradewind Aviation, and United Express). They serve 16 destinations, mainly Atlanta, Charlotte, Detroit, Washington DC, and destinations throughout Florida, with seasonal routes to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. However, commercial flights only account for roughly a quarter of all aircraft operations at Westchester County Airport. Westchester is an affluent county, as is nearby Fairfield County, CT, and the runways at KHPN are just over 30 miles north of Manhattan. As a result, private planes are responsible for the majority of flights at Westchester County, especially as an alternative to Teterboro Airport, which is dedicated to private aviation, but opposite the Hudson River in Teterboro, New Jersey. There are 3 FBO providers and 5 private terminals on-site at White Plains Airport (Ross Aviation East & West, Signature Flight Support East & West, Million Air). Air charter brokers including Wolf Aviation and Private Jets Teterboro offer access to charter planes in New York and across the country. Due to its proximity to Manhattan, business jets are the main offering, however aircraft can range from single and twin-engine propeller planes to luxury jets and airliners.

  • Haunted Dead End, 311 Gainsborg Ave. (Only on Halloween). Every Halloween, a group of family and friends set up one of the most freightening experiences for anyone who is in the area. This isn't your typical haunted house walkthough, yet more of a stage full of actors covered in the terrifying costumes, chasing around trick-or-treaters up and down the block.

On the border of West Harrison rests Silver Lake, where with the proper permits and a small boat you can fish on the lake during the Spring and Summer.
