Yachts For Sale In New Rochelle
New Rochelle, one of the 10 most populous cities in New York State, is in Westchester County on the Long Island Sound. The first European settlers were a French Protestant group known as Huguenots who were fleeing religious persecution in 1688. Many were from the French city, La Rochelle, which is how New Rochelle got its name. There is a monument in the city’s Hudson Park commemorating these early settlers. The area’s indigenous people, a tribe of Algonquian-speaking Lenape (Delaware) Indians had sold land to Englishman, Thomas Pell who promptly deeded acreage to the Huguenot group of families allowing them to establish a French refugee community, who continued to immigrate until 1760 and develop a farming community. During the American Revolution, New Rochelle remained neutral ground, giving General Washington a place to regroup from area battles, especially the Battle of White Plains.

In the 19th and 20th centuries, as waves of European (Irish, German) immigration continued to flow into New York City, families of earlier immigrants moved out into nearby suburbs such as New Rochelle, changing the demographics, though the established French Huguenot families held key business, social and political positions. In 1900, as the population reached about 15,000, real estate developers bought up farms, estates and wooded areas to develop the first master-planned residential neighborhoods (e.g. Rochelle Park), earning it the nickname, “City of Homes.” During this time of the industrial innovation, Edwin Thanhouser produced the first serial motion picture, “Million Dollar Mystery” through his company, the Thanhouser Film Company, founded 1909 in New Rochelle. Another notable first, Anna Jones of New Rochelle was the first African American woman to be admitted to the New York State bar in 1923. During the 1930s, New Rochelle was the wealthiest city per capita in New York and third wealthiest in the entire nation.
Like most populous suburbs of New York City, upgrading of transportation systems and repurposing of former industrial or outmoded commercial and/or residential areas became the trend at the end of the 20th century, as rapidly increasing technology brought about changes in every facet of life, especially entertainment. In New Rochelle, the Metro North railroad Station was rebuilt along with “New Roc City,” a $190 million entertainment complex, featuring a 19-screen movie theater, IMAX theater, ice-hockey arena, restaurants, hotel, arcade, mini-golf, a mega-size supermarket and more, on the former mid-1960s New Rochelle Mall site. 21st century planning calls for further redevelopment, including a mixed-use waterfront area with expected completion in 2024.
New Rochelle has a total of 9.3 miles waterfront, including offshore islands and coves.

Glen Island is a 105-acre island property connected to the New Rochelle mainland by a drawbridge built in the 1920s. Its main feature is the crescent-shaped beach on the Long Island Sound. The island is among a group of 5 that were purchased in 1879 by a wealthy former Congressman and transportation mogul, John H. Starin who developed the islands into America’s first public theme park. A fleet of 12 steamboats transported millions of City dwellers and other visitors to Glen Islands attractions that included a zoo, natural history museum, German beer garden, Chinese pagoda and of course, the beach. There are several other parks and preserves on various islands, on the city’s harbor front, former estates, forests and lakes, that offer hiking, educational and eco experiences, a dog park and much more for outdoor recreation.
