Mamaroneck

Dating back to the late 1600s, when a London merchant bought the secluded land at the estuary of the Mamroneck River from Siwanoy Indians, Mamorneck is today a vibrant town sprinkled with charming antique stores, culinary eateries and a scenic harbor that attracts both local and vacationing sunbathers in the summer. A popular home for commuting parents, who can reach mid-town Manhattan in less than 40 minutes via Metro-North, Mamaroneck is also the home to an excellent school system.

The town itself boasts roughly six miles of coastline, which opens up plenty of opportunity to enjoy the water for both locals and visitors. The beaches themselves are lined with marinas, yacht clubs, and shorefront parks, which are particularly beautiful in May when the hundreds of cherry trees that adorn the harbor’s park are in their full and outstanding bloom.
