Named for the larch trees shrouding the former property of Peter Jay Munro, nephew of John Jay, the Village of Larchmont has been recognized as a “Tree City USA” for over thirty years. It is celebrated for its small-town charm and natural beauty, boasting quiet parks, bright shorelines, and quaint downtown shops and eateries.

Originally a resort community for wealthy New York City residents, Larchmont is now noteworthy for both its picturesque dotting of old-fashioned homes and its grand manors on Long Island Sound. Located only 18 minutes from midtown-Manhattan, and technically just slightly over one square mile in size, Larchmont is a perfect mix of urban access and low-key suburban living. Its highly-rated public schools and serene atmosphere make it a draw for many young families.

Larchmont’s scenic Manor Park consists of 13 acres of land, with more than 5,000 feet of beautiful shoreline. This waterfront park offers many gazebos, nature trails, benches, and fabulous beachside rocks from which to explore and adore the landscape. It’s not alone among the parks, however; also available are Flint Park (at 27 acres, the village’s largest), Lorenzen, Vanderburg, Willow, and Pine Brook. For a full day of adventure, discover the local farmer’s market, investigate the public library, the antiques shops, and visit the multiple art galleries in this charismatic neighborhood.
