A small town in the middle of Westchester, New York. A stereotypical Briarcliff person is believed to be rich, smart, and enjoys partying. While Briarcliff does have one of the best school districts in the country, the residents are not all geniuses, and Briarcliff does have less wealthy residents. Although these residents are not poor as in city standards, many Briarcliff residents do struggle with money due to super high taxes. It has wealthy residents as well as residents who are going bankrupt and losing their jobs. Most people only live there while their children are attending the school, and once the children graduate, they move away.
It is a common misconception that all Briarcliff teenagers spend every weekend partying. Yes there are many kids who do that, as in every town, but there are also many kids who don't drink or do drugs and spend their weekends relaxing and hanging out in the small town.
A popular story about the town is that the very last building on the street (not the Patio) is cursed, as recently, anyone who has owned that property has either died or experienced a death in the family causing them to sell the place. Not 1 owner has been able to hold on to the property for longer than a year since the owner of a soap and perfume store in that location, died. It is rumored she died in the building and has haunted it since.
Briarcliff is just like any other town, but a lot of people like to insult it because it has some wealthier residents.
Random Person: (to their son) Those girls are from Briarcliff, they would be a good catch. They are smart, pretty, rich, and like to party.
Briarcliff Girl: (to her friend) Wow, did you hear that? Some people don't know the difference between what is a stereotype and what's true.
