It is a suburb of New York City, lying north of Columbus Circle. It is a bedroom community, with many of its residents working in Midtown Manhattan. Other workplaces of Greenville residents are in the office parks of White Plains, Purchase, Armonk, Westport, Connecticut or Stamford, Connecticut, as well as many local businesses in southern Westchester County.
The limits of the CDP are essentially defined by the areas served by the Edgemont Union Free School District and the Greenville Fire Department.According to the New York Times:
Occupying a hilly pocket between the Sprain Brook Parkway to the west and the Bronx River Parkway to the east, Edgemont's Tudor and classic colonials (a few dating back to the 18th century) are about 22 miles from Midtown Manhattan, making it an appealing choice for commuters.
Greenville was originally a development designed by different architects for summer homes for Manhattanites. With its antique colonial homes and outstanding schools, it is an attractive option for those seeking to move from New York City. Metro-North trains are accessible via the Scarsdale and Hartsdale train stations, and they run 25–46 minutes to Grand Central Terminal, depending on if one has a local or express train.
