The Village of Mamaroneck grew up around its harbor, which is the second largest natural small boat harbor on the East Coast. With mooring and docking facilities for 400 boats, a fishing pier, swimming beach, and privately run boatyards. Located in southern Westchester, the Village borders the shores of the Long Island Sound and consists of several seaside communities with 12 1/2 miles of shoreline, scenic harbors, sandy beaches and more than 323 acres of parkland.
Scattered throughout town are boutiques, antique stores, gourmet markets, delis, and restaurants like Le Provencal Bistro offering a touch of Provence. People come from all over the country to feast at Sal’s Pizzeria on the Avenue or savor some of Walter's Hot Dogs - a Westchester institution and nationally registered historical landmark near the High School.
This picturesque village retains the charm and flavor of a quaint New England town, yet is only a 35+ minute train commute into Manhattan.
