Fleetwood and Mount Vernon
The City of Mount Vernon is located in the southern portion of Westchester County only 15 miles from mid-town Manhattan. It offers a wide variety of housing options for its very cosmopolitan population of almost 70,000 residents and 98 different nationalities. Single-family homes, multi-family homes, condominiums, co-operatives, and even many rentals are main attractions for the commuter’s dream that is Mount Vernon.
Serviced by three Metro North train stations in only 4 square miles, almost all residents are able to walk to the train and to Bee-Line bus stops on virtually every corner. The commute to Grand Central Station in the heart of New York City is only 27 minutes.
Most of Mount Vernon’s homes are pre-war in traditional 1920’s style, with architectural details that are very unique to the area. They feature all the charm of yesteryear without the “big city” prices or higher taxes of some other communities.
The city’s Fleetwood neighborhood has been popular since the 1920’s with commuters and those seeking walk-able convenience. Co-op apartments and single-family homes all enjoy easy access to the Fleetwood Metro North station and the mix of shops, businesses and restaurants along Gramatan Avenue.
The Department of Recreation provides year-round activities such as basketball, baseball, tennis, football, track and golf to name just a few. Retail development is on the rise, including big-box stores and specialty shops, along with eateries representing the wide-ranging tastes of the city’s multitude of nationalities.
Tree-lined and vibrant, Mount Vernon is a wonderful place to call home.
