White Plains, New York

White Plains, incorporated in 1916, is a city in Westchester County, New York. With a resident population of around 57,000, White Plains is convenient to New York City and southwestern Connecticut and is served by two railroad stations, a nearby airport, highways and buses. In the past decade, development of new apartment and condominium complexes in the downtown area have drawn new residents, many of whom commute to jobs in Manhattan. White Plains is also a significant retail destination for the area, and serves as headquarters for businesses such as Heineken USA, Starwood Hotels and ITT Corporation.

European settlement in White Plains began in 1683, with the arrival of a group of Puritans from Connecticut. Through much of its first century, White Plains was a rural, agricultural area. In 1758, it became the seat of Westchester County, and began to develop as a business and financial center. An extension of the Harlem Railroad in 1846 brought an increase in population, and by 1886, White Plains boasted three fire companies, a local gas company, and four hotels. Photographs of the period detail the numerous handsome Victorian houses built by prominent residents. One of these, Mapleton, was built in 1867 by a prosperous carriage manufacturer. It was used as convent from 1894-1925, and is now on the National Register of Historic Places. In the early 20th century, a number of New York City-based department stores, such as Macy's and B. Altman & Company, established branches in White Plains, which quickly became a suburban shopping destination. Periods of economic downturn have caused vacancies and consolidation of businesses, but White Plains has remained a retail center, establishing malls such as the Galleria, and in recent years adding telecommunications, technology and financial services businesses to the mix.

White Plains has an active construction industry, and a history of urban renewal at a time when asbestos-containing products were widely used, making asbestos exposure a concern for workers. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with asbestos cancer in White Plains, you may benefit from contacting an experienced New York mesothelioma expert. A good asbestos lawyer may also be able to assist you if you or a loved one were exposed to asbestos in White Plains.
