Whitby Castle, Rye Country Club

Rye is a coastal city in Westchester County of New York. Best known for being home to Rye Playland (also known as Playland Amusement Park) which was built in 1928, the only publicly-owned amusement park in the U.S.A., it has the feel of a charming, wealthy small town along the Long Island Sound. It is the youngest city in New York State.

Waterfront covers 60 percent of the city's six square miles.

Rye has over 454 acres of parklands which are great for hiking and walking.
