Lower Hudson Valley rocks the senior beauty set

Flipping through this week’s People Magazine (the annual list of the 100 Most Beautiful People), I noticed a glut of Lower Hudson beauties (as opposed to last year when we kicked air-brushed, photo-shopped butt).
Besides former Rockland pretties Hayden Panettiere and Angelina Jolie, and Bedford-raised hot momma, Felicity Huffman, the list was Westchester/Rockland/Putnam-free…that is, until I got to page 202: “Sexy, Stunning and 60+,� where no less than four current and former area residents made the list: Glenn Close (60), Susan Sarandon (60), Diane Keaton (61), and Martha Stewart (65).


So what is it about our neighborhoods that attract all these attractive, older women?And, while we’re at it, which local pretty people were most undeservedly left off?
