We Have It
Westchester has it all and more. Our footprint is huge – 450 square land miles, to be precise – and our population is larger than five states and 77 countries. At last count, 949,113 of you called Westchester home. Check out our fun graphic of Westchester to see what we mean.
And here county government is working for you in more ways than you think. In fact, we probably offer more services, events and opportunities than you even realize. But it's important that you know we're here when you need us.
"Whether you’ve lived in Westchester your entire life or are new to the area, my guess is you’ll find a few surprises inside these pages. But first let me begin by saying I am so proud to serve this county, where our extraordinary residents never cease to amaze me. As we rebuilt after Hurricane Sandy, for instance, I witnessed countless acts of neighbors helping neighbors. There is never a shortage of challenges. From roads, bridges and sewers; pools, parks and trails; health care, senior living and public safety; planes, trains and buses – county government delivers essential services every day. But not alone.
Smarter government means partnerships with valued organizations. Working together is how we get things done. So take a minute and explore all Westchester has to offer."
