Located in the southeastern part of the state of New York and a city in Westchester County, New Rochelle sits along the Long Island Sound in the northeast part of New York City. New Rochelle’s area was founded by a group of Huguenot refugees in 1688 and the area was named La Rochelle, a seaport that is located on the Atlantic coast of France. The city’s modern suburban-residential character has been emphasized by its golf courses, parks, and recreation facilities that are found in the shoreline. New Rochelle has a number of light industries that include the production of electrical equipment, metal fasteners, plumbing supplies, and commercial ovens.
