Extremely white collar,preppy and wealthy town roughly 45 minutes north of New York City in Westchester County, New York. Situated in between the infamous Greenwich, CT and Chappaqua, NY, Bedford has an extremely rural and New Englandy feel to it, containing farms with horses, large forests and rolling hills. Bedford is, however, far from your average rural town. Due to its relaxing atmosphere and close proximity to NYC and several large bodies of water, Bedford attracts the "rich and famous" and is considered to be one of the wealthiest towns in the United States. Residents include Glen Close, Chevy Chase, Mariah Carey, rapper DMX, billionaire George Soros, billionaire Donald Trump, billionaire Nelson Peltz, designer Ralph Lauren, designer Calvin Klein, designer Joseph Abude, Monica Lewinsky, and Susan Suranden. It seems at though the town is split 50/50: Jewish/WASP--the two groups are very different but get along fine. The average price for a home is over 1,000,000 dollars; many homes lie in estates of over 100 acres that entail lavish gates, swimming pools and sometimes even helicopter pads. Bedfordians are far less snotty, but equally as wealthy as Greenwhich or Chappaqua residents, as exemplified by the fact that most of the wealthy teenagers go to the local public high school. Residents under 18 drink way too much and are generally addicted to cocaine.
