VALHALLA, N.Y. -- The New York Times took a deep dive into life in Valhalla.

The hamlet in the Town of Mount Pleasant is known for its excellent schools and short and direct commute to the city, according to the Times.

The Times said Valhalla has slim pickings for shoppings, with many residents doing their grocery shopping in Thornwood or North White Plains. Downtown also has limited parking, according to the Times.

Valhalla is also home to the Kensico Damn and a new 3 million biotech development near Westchester Medical Center that is expected to create 9000 permanent homes.

More business will be coming to Valhalla. A plan was announced this year for a 3 million-square-foot development near the Westchester Medical Center that will include a biotechnology research center; medical offices; a children’s living science center intended to promote health; a hotel; and more than 100,000 square feet of ground-level retail. The project is expected to create 9,000 permanent jobs.

According to Trulia, a median home in Valhalla costs $569,500, an increase of 3.4 percent from last year.
