Pine Lake Park, located in nearby Northern Westchester, offers a surprisingly affordable and retro summer escape.  The 65-unit, 50-acre summer coop community is situated around a well-maintained lake, and while it’s less than an hour from NYC, it feels like a different world. Kids enjoy a “free-range” summer full of swimming and outdoor playtime in nature, while parents have tennis, basketball, hiking, biking, and dancing in a stunning old social hall.  Most weekends there are community BBQs at the lake.

Many Pine Lakers spend weekends from May to October, but they also steal away on a weekday to play tennis and swim, because at 1 hour away – they can.
