Scarsdale, Rye, Dobbs Ferry, Mamaroneck and Peekskill are on the list.

And—no surprise—five Westchester communities made the Top 10. 

1. Village of Scarsdale

4. Village of Rockville Centre
5. Village of Mamaroneck
6. Village of Floral Park
6. Village of Lynbrook
8. City of Peekskill
9. Village of Massapequa Park
10. City of Long Beach

Their criteria included median household income, time spent commuting, and average hours worked. Check out the full report here.

Asking on unknowable question. How would you know even if data is valid?

Not unknowable. Their data came from the U.S. Census and American Community Survey.

Lanning, just because the data is true doesn't make the assertion true. I wasn't clear. Staying in touch through Patch...greetings from Poland.

The entire "big question" list of "reports" from the real estate company are only intended to engender discussion about different towns in Westchester and make the real estate company appear knowledgeable about these same towns so that home buyers will use them when seeking a house. In my book, calling ANY community "hard working" when they have under 50 hours / week average as their time spent working is absurd. Looking at the other factors included in the so called analysis shows that income excludes poorer communities in which many people are working many hours more per week to try to keep their heads above water. The whole thing is bilge water and a PR stunt supported by Patch.

I just thought it was an amusing little snapshot.
