Pleasantville

Pleasantville, a village located within Mount Pleasant, sits in the very heart of Westchester County. 

Pleasantville has a population of just over 7,000, and comes with a rich history, thanks to the American Revolution.  It's the original home of Reader’s Digest.

Pleasantville was actually named the second best-smelling city in the world, according to GQ’s Chandler Burr, who noted “maple, oak, and pine smell cyclically different as the seasons turn, and Pleasantville's scent is based on these trees and their leaves at all stages—green, yellow, dead brown, and budding.” Pleasantville is home the Jacob Burns Film Center, a small theater that shows independent, foreign, and documentary films. You can also find quaint businesses, like the Village Bookstore and Flour & Sun Bakery, in Pleasantville. With a highly ranked high school, and a spot on Metro-North’s Harlem line, Pleasantville is a desirable locale for those looking to move into the suburbs.
