PORT CHESTER, N.Y. Alan and Ani Weiner of Rye are packing their bags to move into The Mariner, a long-awaited new luxury rental residence in Port Chester that opened its doors this week.
The building is absolutely beautiful. Our unit is very spacious. I love the décor, I love the location, I love that we have some of the best restaurants nearby and the movie theater for my kids, said Ani Weiner, who is moving from a Waters Edge condominium in Rye. I feel like this is the new SoHo in Westchester. Its so up and coming.
The 100-unit five-story brick building at 21 Willet Ave. on the Byram River waterfront is the latest addition to the villages downtown renaissance.
If you live in Westchester, everybody knows Port Chester already has a lot of great factors to it already, says Nancy Rossi, leasing manager for The Mariner. A lot of people come here already for the restaurants. People who know the area already know its great so those people definitely want to be [at the Mariner] because theres nothing like this in Westchester. Maybe we are the first in the area to start, but I think its going to be of many more to come.

The kitchen and living rooms are configured in an open living arrangement and include quartz countertops, stainless steel Whirlpool gas ranges/ovens, microwaves, refrigerators/freezers and dishwashers.
The island in the kitchen is the first things I saw. [Nancy Rossi] said to me youve got a lot of closet space I said, I do? said Ani Weiner, who has two children ages 11 and 12. That countertop alone sold me. I saw the layout of the rooms, and I said, 'You know what, Ill take it.'

I cant wait to live here. I like Port Chester - its right near a lot of restaurants and walking distance to the movie theater and Costco. Its on the water and there are views whats not to like about this place? said Alan Weiner, who works in New York City and plans to commute by Metro-North, just a five-minute walk away.
