You know you've never been out of Westchester when:

a) you refer to White Plains and New Rochelle as 'ghetto'
b) that one time in your whole life when you went to Brooklyn (likely gentrified Brooklyn Heights, no less) you actually expected to hear people talking in Brooklyn accents.
c) You group all neighborhoods in the Bronx and Brooklyn together as "the ghetto", even areas that are predominantly white, low-crime, and working class (Bensonhurst, Kingsbridge, Throgs Neck, etc); that is, your definition of ghetto is anything poorer than Westchester.
d) you believe the subway is a lot faster than it actually is. People in remote parts of Brooklyn like Sheepshead Bay or Gravesend don't get to Manhattan any faster than the Metro-North train from lower Westchester.

Note that not everyone in Westchester is a suburban hermit, i live there and have been to just about every corner of the 4 main boroughs. But soooo many people fit this description, it's really sad, White Plains is NOT ghetto, not even remotely. And New Rochelle is like Sesame Street compared to the worst parts of Brooklyn. So you don't live inthe ghetto westchester people, get over it.
I was a suburban hermit until about a year ago.

According to Census 2000, Westchester county ranks no.12 (instead of no.3) out of the 3219 counties (or county equivalent) in per capita income.

Well, it is still pretty high.

Generally boring suburb. A watered-down version of NYC where everything closes at 8 pm and New Rochelle is considered a "ghetto". I'd like to bring some of these suburban kids to the South Bronx or Jamaica Queens and then see what they think.
Wow 2 people have been shot in White Plains since 1987 what a freakin ghetto dude. Yo I didn't get my car until I was like 16-1/2 im so ghetto.

Sharply divided into North and South. The southern half of the county which is closer to the city is heavily population suburbs while the towns to the north are more rural. The "Southerners", like me, don't consider Northern Westchester to really be part of our county.
Somers and Peekskill aren't Westchester, they're in Upstate New York or the "hudson valley" or whatever you want to call it. And by the way, Lower Westchester is not part of the Hudson valley contrary to every travel guide known to man, the HV is somewhere upstate or something. Really, what do Yonkers and Poughkeepsie really have in common?

Suburban tract of land where people identify a little too much with NYC, as they don't actually live there. Face it, no one in Manhattan cares if you lived in the Bronx until you were 3 years old and then moved to Serene Hills, NY or wherever.
Why didn't Bill just move to the Upper East Side? What the hell is up in Chappaquiddick that's so great?

A suburb north of cincinnati where no one calls you back about shrooms.
Dealer: Yo, I got boomers (shrooms).
Consumer: Give me a quarter.
... 3 days later.
Consumer: Hey, what's the word on the shrooms?
... 7 hours later.
Dealer: O, sorry man, all out.

Consumer: Fuck West Chester
