It was sunny and glorious day… I felt compelled to take a few photos whilst walking in downtown Mamaroneck. Please join me!
A portion of the 6.7-square-mile village is located within the Town of Mamaroneck along with Larchmont, and its east side lies within the town of Rye.
The village is geographically blessed with a landscape that hugs Long Island Sound. Named after the Indian word meaning “where the fresh water meets the salt,” the village of Mamaroneck grew around its inland harbor, which is the second largest natural small boat harbor on the East Coast. The fact that 52 percent of Mamaroneck village’s total area comprises water means that it offers not only a wealth of sandy beaches and scenic shoreline, but also countless recreational opportunities like sailing and fishing. Large expanses of parkland boast miles of trails for walking, hiking or picnicking.
The village was once a magnet for wealthy families from New York City seeking a summer home just outside the hustle and bustle of the big city, and among its famous residents was Norman Rockwell. Today, many individuals working in Manhattan are drawn to the community because of its convenient commute, as the city is only a half hour away. Mamaroneck enjoys a vibrant retail, restaurant and entertainment scene. Only a handful of New York City suburbs can hope to offer as much to residents and visitors as this lovely southern Westchester community.
Mamaroneck is GREAT!
