Southeast and Brewster
The Town of Southeast is conveniently located in the southern-most portion of Putnam County, bordering Connecticut on the east, and at the junction of several major highways and routes: I-684, I-84, Routes 22, 312, 6 and 202. It is a superb location for commuters going south into New York via 2 Metro North stations serving the town, or east into Connecticut.
The moment you reach the intersection of I-84 and I-684, you are astounded by the beautiful view of hillsides, mountains, and valleys that welcomes you into Southeast. Many communities within the Town have their own lakes offering the surrounding residents vacation living right at home. Southeast offers many housing opportunities - single family homes, subdivisions, condominiums, rural estates, and farms. The town has room for new construction, yet has many fine established homes and neighborhoods. Taxes and housing prices in Southeast are generally lower than in nearby northeastern Westchester County, and this has attracted many young families into the area.
The area is rich in history and cultural attractions, as well as natural beauty. There are 4 major town parks, including a community center and town beach at Lake Tonetta. Outdoor enthusiasts have many local options for horseback riding, hiking, biking, fishing on streams, lakes or reservoirs, and a nearby ski area.
