Ellen Pocost can’t imagine a better place to live and raise children than Westchester County. Her all-time favorite spot is Manor Park in Larchmont, which, on a summer evening at magic hour, is just like something out of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. She lives with her husband, son, two stepsons, and a rescue dog, and considers her successfully blended family to be her greatest personal accomplishment.
