The LAST place I would want to live in this area would be the Valley. First of all, that's exactly where all of the big quakes hit. I'm 30 miles from there. Secondly, I live where I do because of the weather. In the Valley, it gets to be 110 in the summer and in the winter you get the big rains. Properties in the vValley are generally worth much less than in Westchester. I truly live in the garden spot of the nation.
