#98. White Plains, NY

The birthplace of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, White Plains is an affluent New York community where many residents commute 30 minutes by express train to work in Manhattan. But White Plains has a strong economy of its own, as evidenced by its skyline of 10 buildings that are 17 stories or higher and a daytime weekday population estimated at 250,000.

The city features 35 distinct neighborhoods, and livability amenities include a high-ranking White Plains Public School System, five college campuses and White Plains Hospital. Many Broadway acts and shows are staged at White Plains Performing Arts Center, and local residents are passionate about getting involved in social causes.
