Caches placed in Westchester County prior to December 31, 2001 that are still active. A number of the sixteen remaining caches have two- and three-digit GC designations. Sleepy Hollow (GCAE)(now archived) was the second oldest cache in New York State. As you will note, the first eight were placed by either lucien or clunelaw.

11/14/08 EDIT: With the archiving of Why Me? we are down to fifteen.

12/19/10 EDIT: With the archiving of lucien's Zephyr (#3) and Blue Moon (#10) on account of the geocaching ban at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, we are now down to 13.

11/25/17 EDIT: With the regrettable archiving of Westchester's oldest cache (Sleepy Hollow-1), we are down to 12.

1/10/18 EDIT: The purge of RSPP continues as Elsie's Green Pastures is also archived, leaving us now with 11.

8/10/20 EDIT: With the archiving of Bike trail cache (formerly #7), we are now down to 10.

6/27/21 EDIT: The Watusi Trackable Grand Hotel has been archived. And then there were 9.
