General Information about New Rochelle

New Rochelle (French: Nouvelle-Rochelle /la nuvl ol/ (helpinfo)) is a city in the southeast portion of the U.S. state of New York in Westchester County. It is 16 miles from Grand Central Terminal in New York City and 2 miles north of the NYC border (Pelham Bay Park in The Bronx). It lies on the Long Island Sound just east of Pelham & Pelham Manor and west of Larchmont & The Town of Mamaroneck . The northern sections of the city lie between Eastchester to the west and Scarsdale to the east. Settled by refugee Huguenots (French Protestants) in 1688 who were fleeing tyrannical Catholic pogroms in France. Many of the settlers were artisans and craftsmen from the city of La Rochelle France, thus influencing the name of choice of "New Rochelle." New Rochelle was established as a village in 1857. It became a city only 40 years later.
