New Rochelle Things to Do

  • Walk along shore line

    There is a shore line in New Rochelle and if it is accessible you can get some great views of the bird sanctuary that is across the water.

  • Glen Island Park

    It is one of Westchester County's most popular park. There are sections of it that was once a casino and there is a former German beer garden there as well. At the time of visit, there were a lot of picnic tables with people have barbeques. One was so large that it was obviously a family reunion from people from Guyana. People came in a few buses...

  • Regal Cinemas Megaplex

    Ferni and I have come here a couple of times and honestly will say it is not one of our favorite cinemas. The theatre gets very crowded especially during the first weekend of a new screenig and quite honestly, there are too many "undesirables" hanging in and around the theatre. With this said, they usually have the newest screenings of the latest...

  • Hudson Park

    Hudson Park is one of those places we frequent. They have benches along the beach and some small walking paths that lead from the parking lot to the shores. The name aside this is on Long Island Sound and not the Hudson River which would be impossible from New Rochelle.They also have a small playground with a couple of swings that are always fun if...

  • New Roc City

    New Roc City has everyting you could want when it comes to enetertanment and some food options. New Roc City has: Imax, an 18 theatre movie complex, Bowling, Ice skating, Buffalo Wild Wings, Applebees and Jani.We have often come to New Roc City to see a flick and grab a bite to eat. Parking is easy and convienent. It's only a short drive from where...

  • Imax

    Once you've seen a movie in Imax you never want to go to the regular theatre ever again. My first experience with Imax was when we saw 300. It was an incredible movie. Having the screen so large and the sound quality so enhanced made it a great movie experience. We saw Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoneix here in Imax 3D. Wow! It was...

  • Ok Idine

    So I’ve been here a few times now, five or six if I had to guess. The food is generally ok... sometimes it's good and sometimes it's sub par. I’m not going to go out of my way to come here for that. But the atmosphere is quite fun and always leads to an entertaining moment or three. One of the best parts of this is that it is an idine on most...

  • CHRISTMAS WITH A HUGE ITALIAN FAMILY

    I was a bit nervous when hearing that I was going to be meeting Richie's Italian side of the family. I had heard all the names and seen all the pictures and heard story after story about all of his Aunts, Uncles and cousins, but I honestly was not prepared to see hundreds of relatives in one room and to be greeted by each and every one of them in...

  • Suprisingly Good

    I’ve been only been to this location a few times to dine in although we've gotten take out from it also. It surprises me the ups and downs of a service business. We normally frequent the Portchester location due to its close proximity to our home. This location is ot as good in my opinion as the Port Chester location but it is right in New Roc City...

  • Italian Wedding

    The Surf Club is one of those New Rochelle Beach Clubs/Catering Halls. I had seen pictures of the place before since Liz had her first wedding at the Surf Club. The place is prety big on the inside. Personally I think the chandelier in the main entrance is way too big for the space. The wedding was in the second floor banquet room. The cocktail...

  • A Quick Snack before Catching a Movie

    Applebee's is not a place I'd come for a meal. It is strictly a snack place for me. When we are in the mood for a quick snack before a movie then we stop in for some nachos or some dessert. The nachos are pretty good and are piled high with toppings. We haven't been dissapointed with the nachos yet so we continue to come. We actually prefer the...

  • On the Waterfront

    We've been to this restaurant a couple of times and I've enjoyed my meal (Ferni didn't the first time around) and the atmosphere wasn't so bad either. The restaurant is causal family dining. The interior of the restaurant looks like they docked a barge and gutted it out to make way for a dinning area with a pretty large bar. There is a porch/deck...

  • New bar in town

    Was in this new bar last night. I normally do not travel to party as it usually involves someone driving or arranging other ways home. But a party for a friend at his new bar brought me out along with many of my friends.This bar is a lively and happening place that seems to favor a mid 20s crowd.

New Rochelle Transportation

  • Subway and Bee line

    An inexpensive way to get to New Rochelle besides Metro North is by taking the NYC subway #6 line to Pelham Bay Park and then take the Westchester Bee line #45 to New Rochelle. The cost of travel one way is $5 but please check the bus line schedule since it tends to run infrequently.

  • Driving

    When we visit New Rochelle it is primarily by car. It's a short drive on I-95 or the Post Road from where we live. I prefer driving around Westchester; it allows more freadom to do and see what you want when you want.

  • GET GOOD DIRECITONS

    As Richie and I quickly learned, it is very important to get good directions when driving to and around New Rochelle. The area is a maze of one way streets and dead ends. If you aren't sure where you are going, mapquest it prior to leaving home. We got lost twice between point A and point B because directions kept saying things such as take a...

New Rochelle Warnings and Dangers

  • cjg1's Profile Photo

    by cjg1 Written Feb 20, 2009

    I have been warned by Liz and several people who have lived or worked in New Rocheel that the New Rochelle cops are no joke. They definitely live by their own set of rules and will crack head if they feel the need. One of our friends owns a business in New Rochelle and is often harassed and shaken down by some of the members of this police force....it's all about who you know in this town. I'm sure there are some police in this town that are on the up and up and nice but all I have heard about is the bad. So be cautious and follow the rules when visiting New Rochelle.
