We wanted to somehow still have an easy commute to the city, where we both work, and find a place that we could consider living as opposed to just another place we would rent for a few years then move again. After a Google search for Jewish communities in Westchester, we found Fleetwood. They happened to be hosting an open house that weekend to welcome prospective couples and families which we quickly signed up for. Within 5 minutes at the event we found Fleetwood inviting, warm, and welcoming. Plus the shul was a five-minute walk to the Metro-North!
