Situated in the southern region of Westchester County, New York lies the beautiful coastal city of Rye. The area was originally settled as a town around 1660 by three settlers from Connecticut. During the earlier years of its inception, both Connecticut and New York laid claim to the new area known as “Rye Town”. By 1683, the town of Rye was officially designated as part of New York, per a boundry agreement between both the colonies. After this period, the once small town began to grow in population with many colonists throughout the surrounding areas being drawn into the area. With development of the waterfront, economic trade, and as the home of one of the Founding Fathers, John Jay, Rye, NY was chartered as a city in 1942.
Today, the city is home to over 16,000 residents spread across 6 square miles of wetlands, marshes and natural rock formations. However, most notably to the residents and visitors is the sprawling beaches and waterfront views of the Long Island Sound. This southern area of Rye, NY covers 60% of the city’s total square miles. This recreational section of the city has provided for the advanced development of nature reserves, parks, sport facilities, and more. With much of the community centered around water, it’s important to understand and have the skill of swimming in order to enjoy everything Rye has to offer.
