Thornwood

The 411: Located in central Westchester, Thornwood is an unincorporated hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) within the Town of Mount Pleasant. Like Hawthorne next door, Thornwood has been a bit of an enigma to residents of southern and northern Westchester. But the hamlet, which shares the commercial/industrial corridors of Marble Avenue with Pleasantville and Broadway with Hawthorne, is worth seeking out, as it offers an assortment of housing options—including some lovely Dutch Colonials on slightly larger lots than in pricier adjacent Pleasantville—good schools, two shopping centers (with two of central Westchester’s larger supermarkets, ShopRite and A&P, as their anchors), and a variety of restaurants and pubs (including the popular Finnegan’s Grill, where sports fans love to watch the games on the flat-screens). Hawthorne also boasts easy access to the rest of the county via the Saw Mill and Sprain Brook Parkways, and a relatively short commute to Manhattan via Metro-North (Pleasantville or Hawthorne stations).
