Where to live - Rye, Scarsdale, Scarborough, or Croton-on...

I am a single mom of two young boys, age 3, who will be starting school in two years. I am looking at apartments and have narrowed down to the above towns. Based on schools, convenience, community, etc., which of the above would you recommend? I am torn. Scarsdale and Rye have the best schools, but I worry that there is so much money there, it might be hard to be the one girl on a budget. (Though Rye appears to have more of a mix of high and low incomes.) Croton and Scarborough are beautiful and on the water, but the schools aren't as great. They seem like sleepier towns, too. I would like a town where I might meet someone one day, or find a nice community for my kids (play dates, etc.) Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!  (May 13, 2012 | post #1)
