My Neighborhood: Westchester—The Sporting Life
Popular sportscaster Bruce Beck’s life in Westchester revolves around family, work, and, of course, sports. “I get to take advantage of all of them here,” says Beck, the lead sports anchor for WNBC-TV in New York. “We get the serenity of Westchester, it’s close to the city so I can cover all the teams, and my children and grandchildren are nearby.” Beck and his wife of 38 years, Janet, have been smitten with the county since they first moved to the Quaker Ridge section of Scarsdale from Manhattan in 1992.
They found an idyllic suburban house on a private, tree-lined street, “with a backyard big enough to hit a home run in,” and enjoyed the coveted Scarsdale school system. When it came time to downsize, the Becks moved to a townhouse in White Plains—“in 2014, the year the Rangers were in the Stanley Cup finals versus the Kings,” he recalls. The turnkey townhouse boasts privacy, convenience, and plenty of space for Bruce, Janet, and their dog, Madison. Plus, Beck adds, “It has a terrific tennis court.”
