Bedford is a small town less than an hour from New York City. It’s made up of three quaint hamlets — Katonah, Bedford Village, and Bedford Hills — each with its with its own history and recreational and cultural opportunities. Katonah, which has many boutiques and small restaurants, was moved to its present location in the late 1890s to make way for the Cross River Reservoir. Bedford Village, the original town settlement, with more small shops and eateries, is listed on state and national registers of historic places, as is Bedford Hills, which is centered around its historic train station. The entire town is a popular tourist destination for couples and families, with the occasional celebrity spotting. Domestic diva Martha Stewart, clothing designer Ralph Lauren, and billionaire businessman George Soros all have homes here.
