About New Rochelle

New Rochelle is a city in the southeast portion of the U.S. state of New York in Westchester County, 16 miles (26 km) from Grand Central Terminal in New York City and 2 miles north of the border with The Bronx. It lies on the Long Island Sound east of Mount Vernon. Settled by Huguenots (French Protestants) in 1688, it is mainly residential with some light industry. The city is named after the city of La Rochelle in France, which was a stronghold of the Huguenots. In 2000, the city had a population of 72,182. It is one of the largest suburbs of New York City, the seventh-largest city in the state of New York, and the second-largest city in Westchester County.

New Roc City

 

20th and early 21st centuries

In the early part of the 20th century, the County's famous Glen Island Casino on Long Island Sound continued to draw such celebrities as Glenn Miller, the Dorsey Brothers and Ozzie Nelson.

In 1930, New Rochelle's population hit 54,000, up from 36,213, in 1920. In the early 30's it was the wealthiest city per capita in New York State, the third wealthiest in the country.

New Rochelle had two of the first suburban branch department stores in America, with Arnold Constable opening on Main Street in the 1940s and Bloomingdale's purchasing the locally owned Ware's Store in the late 1940s.

New Rochelle was the scene of the first court-ordered school desegregation case in "the north", when the United States Supreme Court decided in 1962 that its Lincoln School boundaries had been intentionally drawn to create segregated elementary school districts. Lincoln School was closed and demolished in 1965, with students of that district allowed to attend certain other city elementary schools. Today the school district is known for its diversity, and the high school honors civil rights leader Whitney Young in the name of its auditorium and civil rights martyr Michael Schwerner in the name of its library.

In May 1968, New Rochelle High School was destroyed by a fire set by a disturbed student. The fire was early in the morning and nobody was killed. Students attended school in trailers and sessions were divided by morning and evening to accommodate all students. The school was eventually rebuilt. Fortunately the facade of the school remained intact allowing builders to construct a new building behind the beautiful, original exterior.

Part of downtown New Rochelle near the Metro North train station was revitalized in the summer of 1999 with the opening of the $190 million New Roc City, an entertainment complex featuring a 19-screen movie theater, Westchester's first IMAX theater, mini-golf, go karts, an arcade, a health club, restaurants, a hotel, and a supermarket. New Roc City was built on the former Macy's and Mall in New Rochelle sites. The Mall, which had opened in 1968 was an early "downtown mall."

Additional revitalization has come by way of new luxury residences. The construction of Avalon On The Sound East, a luxury apartment complex was unveiled by AvalonBay Communities in 2007. Trump Plaza, a 39-story building which is under construction as of 2007, will be the tallest building in Westchester County at and the tallest between New York City and Albany

Another area in New Rochelle is called Bayberry. Bayberry was established in the early 1950s and is one of New Rochelle's most well-known neighborhoods. It is a public community with approximately 200 houses and 700 residents. Bayberry has a large recreational facility with a basketball court, two pools, a water slide, two tennis courts, a baseball field, and a gaming arcade. Bayberry is connected by trail to the reservoir in Larchmont/New Rochelle. Membership is required to enter the pool facilities, and most residents of Bayberry belong. The residents of Bayberry range in age and many people who grew up in Bayberry return as adults with their families. It is located off of Pinebrook Blvd, and is near Albert Leonard Middle School and William B. Ward Elementary School, two of New Rochelle's public schools.
