Brewster Real Estate

Picture of Brewster

The village of Brewster, NY, is a centrally-located historic community about an hour north of New York City in the town of Southeast, along the southern border of Putnam County. The east town line is the border of Connecticut; the south town line is the border of Westchester County. In the late 19th century, the construction of the Croton Reservoir System had a significant impact on the landscape of both the town and the village. Much of the area’s farmland was flooded for construction of the dams and to protect the purity of the watershed. To this day, development restrictions and other regulations related to the reservoir system continue to affect village planning.

Today, the village of Brewster is experiencing an exciting renaissance. New water lines, careful renovations of historic homes and buildings, pedestrian-friendly streets and a charming village setting make Brewster a model 21st century business and cultural destination with a unique mix of rural and modern assets. With a small-town feel and a strong community spirit, the village takes pride in its role as an environmental steward of the Croton Reservoir System. Citizen groups carefully evaluate and integrate state-of-the-art communication and transportation systems to ensure Brewster's sustainable role as the economic hub of the entire Harlem Valley.

Putnam County in the southeastern part of New York lies between the Hudson River on its west and the New York-Connecticut border on its east. The adjacent counties are Dutchess County, New York to the north, Fairfield County, Connecticut to the east, Westchester County, New York to the south, Rockland County, New York to the southwest and Orange County, New York to the west. Part of the New York City watershed, Putnam County is known for its many reservoirs. After World War II, rapid development made it an exurb and bedroom community of New York City, but the necessary protection of the county's wetlands and reservoirs limited this development. As a result, the area’s vast network of parks, lakes, forests, preserves and other green spaces have remained unspoiled and are enjoyed daily by residents and visitors alike. Pristine nature and close proximity to nearby towns and New York City make Putnam County a very desirable place to live. Putnam County is one of the most affluent counties in America, ranked 11th by median household income according to the 2000 census.
