Katonah, which is unincorporated, does not even have a traffic light. Turning south off Route 35 onto Bedford Road, one soon encounters a broad, tree-lined swath that is part of a historic district listed since 1983 on the State and National Registers of Historic Places. Some houses were moved here from the original site of the hamlet. Others — elaborate Victorian-style “painted ladies” in hues of rose, yellow, lavender and green — were built later. Katonah Avenue runs parallel to Bedford Road, echoing the architecture in its shops near the railroad station.

 

During rush hour, the train from Katonah to Grand Central runs about 65 minutes.
