Mamaroneck

The 411: Featuring a vibrant downtown dotted with antiques stores and eateries, and a picturesque harbor that beckons sunbathers in the summer, Mamaroneck draws both regulars and neighbors looking for shopping and relaxation. One of the oldest communities in Westchester County, the town was settled in the late 1600’s after a London merchant purchased the land at the mouth of the Mamaroneck River from the Siwanoy Indians. Its first census, taken in 1698, counted 77 residents. Today, the town is a popular home for young commuting professionals, who can arrive in Manhattan in under 40 minutes via Metro-North, and for families, thanks to its excellent school system. The town comprises two villages, Larchmont and Mamaroneck (part of which is located in the Town of Rye), in addition to an unincorporated portion. Boasting more than six miles of coastline, Mamaroneck offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy the water with its marinas, yacht clubs, beaches, and shorefront parks—especially in May, when hundreds of cherry trees lining the harbor’s park are in their full and glorious bloom.
