  • Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa

    The Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa is located in the Westchester Mall. Liz gets her hair cut her and loves their spa. It's a nice place to get a gift certificate for a facial, massage or a manicure for that someone special. I know women need to be pampered and love their spa treatments.The services are by appointment only.

  • Clearview 100 Cinema

    This is the place to come see a movie in White Plains. It's located right in the City Center so if you have time to kill before your movie starts you can wander around Target or one of the other stores in the center

  • HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL

    I was surprised to find this Holocaust memorial garden just two blocks from my apartment building. It's beautiful in the Spring.

White Plains Restaurants

  • Iron Tomato

    Iron Tomato is a mish mosh of restaurant,market and bakery. My wife and I first were introduced to Iron Tomato by her parents. When they moved to White Plains they found that Iron Tomato had some of the Italian specialties my Father in Law so loved without heading down to the Bronx. My Father in law loved motoring here in his wheelchair scooter to...

  • Cheesecake Factory

    Cheesecake Factory has a large variety of cheesecakes, hence their name, but they also have a pretty large selection of dishes to please just about anyone regardless of whether you are here for breakfast, lunch, dinner.

  • Raccanelli's Pizza & Brew

    This particular Pizza & Brew is conveniently located between my daughter's home and the cementary where we have mom interred, so after spending some time visiting the cementary we will occassionally stop here for some lunch. The restaurant's decor isn't as nice as the one in Scarsdale, but the food sure is. They have a very large selection of...

  • Legal Sea Foods Restaurant & Oyster Bar

    I've been to the Legal Sea Foods in Washington and Boston and decided to try this location out recently while spending a fun filled day shopping with my daughter. The restaurant is very nice and their food is excellent. I really wasn't expecting the food to be so fresh and delicious and was plesantly surprised when we placed our order. The...

  • Planet Pizza

    My daughter and her husband love Planet Pizza and usually order from here when we want some really good yummy pizza. The restaurant is quite small with a few small tables if you prefer to eat it here, but we usually place our order and then have it delivered. Their individual slices are huge and they have a very large selection of toppings to...

  • Westchester Burger Co.

    This is a fairly new burger joint that is located in close proximity to the Westchester. We had heard some mixed reviews about the place and decided to check it out. The place is quite nice, with a bar to the left of the entrance and the dining area to the right. The walls are exposed brick which gives it a somewhat old rustic charm. The bar is...

We’ll start our day with some shopping then we find a place to have a wonderful meal and catch up with our day to day lives.

  • City Limits Diner

    I recently returned to this diner (1/09) with my sister, daugther and grandson for some breakfast before a shopping excursion. It really isn't a favorite diner of mine as the food is quite expensive not to mention the fact that the diner is always packed. We waited for about 15 minutes before we were seated even though we spotted a few tables...

  • Silver Lake Cafe Grill

    The Silver Lake Cafe Grill is very small (5 tables), but they serve really good breakfast and lunch items.

    Visting my relatives in White Plains and the drive from manhattan made me really hungry and for the carnivore like me, a visit to the nearby Morton's The Steakhouse is a must to fill up the tummy of a steak lover as Morton's is one of my favorite steakhouses. this steakhouse started more than 36 years ago from chicago and is now present in more...

White Plains Nightlife

    One of Liz's co-workers entered them in a Radio contest for a free Happy Hour and won. So off we headed to Elements for our Holiday Happy Hour. Parking was a bit of a nightmare due to it being Christmas time and the shoppers all head to White Plains. After twenty five minutes of searching for parking we found a spot about 5 blocks down from the...

White Plains Transportation

  • Metro North Harlem Line

    There is plenty to do in White Plains, so if you are coming from NYC and don't have a car, Metro North is the best and easiest way to get here. There are trains leaving Grand Central every 10-15 minutes (even on weekends) and if you time it just right you just may get on an express train that takes all of 31 minutes from Grand Central to White...

  • Bee Line Buses

    Another way to get to White Plains is to use the Beeline Bus. Beeline Buses run from Bedford Park in the Bronx and run north to Westchester. This bus unlike the NYC Buses, doesn't use a metro card. The fare for the beeline is $1.75 each way. You can get a transfer for $.25 cents. The trip ends & starts at the Beeline White Plains Station. Across...

White Plains Shopping

  • Whole Foods

    We do our bulk food shopping at Stew Leonards or Costco but for specialty and organic items we come to Whole Foods. The store has everything you could want from fresh produce, fish, meat, poultry, baked goods, salads, soups, prepared food, flowers, beverages, sweets and more. We are often here on Sunday or when in the area visiting Liz's parents to...

    I have been in this store many time to buy presents for Liz. I have always experienced friendly service and they respond well to my pointing at the catalog to indicate the item I am looking to purchase. Anything a woman would want or didn't know she wanted yet... Affordable to expensive

White Plains Local Customs

  • White Plains - Poor Quality of Life

    I consider myself to be easygoing and tolerant of the city life having grown up in Brooklyn and living in Manhattan for numerous years. So I expect some noise, some crowds, some traffic, some garbage and even some mayhem. Unfortunately though, White Plains takes each of these categories to the nth degree so I am leaving and never coming back - not...

  • Paying for Parking

    It really irks me that most places in White Plains charge for Parking. The Westchester Mall, The Galleria, The City Center and Fortunoffs all charge for parking. **An upside to this is that in certain stores in The Westchester they wil validate your parking (Tiffany's, Nordstroms). Fortunoff's and Whole Foods will also validate your parking up to...

White Plains Warnings and Dangers

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    White Plains is bustling with shopping, businesses, residents and schools. There is always some form of traffic especially around the highway and mall areas. The traffic around the holidays especially is a nightmare and we avoid White Plains like the plague.

White Plains Favorites

  • Greystallion's Profile Photo

    by Greystallion Written Sep 8, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Galleria. This mall is hugh. It has a J.C. Penny as the anchor. It has a mutiplex movie cinema. Specialty shops, restaurants, everything a mall needs is included.

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory of White Plains was all the friends on the job and off the job I met. The best part was I meet my former girlfriend there at she was the one who showed me the Galleria where we had our first date.
