Larchmont and Mamaroneck
The town of Mamaroneck is comprised of three communities: the village of Larchmont, and the town and village of Mamaroneck. All are set on the picturesque shores of Long Island Sound and, not surprisingly, attract outdoor and water enthusiasts as both residents and visitors. History tells us that John Richbell purchased this area of “3 necks of land”, which the Indians translated into Mamaroneck.
Six-acre Manor Park in Larchmont is the quintessential waterfront respite with its often-photographed gazebo, quiet strolling paths and tranquil view of sailboats bobbing offshore. The more bustling harbor in Mamaroneck village, with mooring and docking for 400 boats plus a fishing pier and swimming beach, fronts a vibrant downtown. New condominium developments in the village have spurred the opening of a wide array of restaurants, cafes, shops and galleries. The Emelin Theater, one of the best performing arts centers in the region, hosts a variety of concerts and performances for children and adults.
Mamaroneck has a long tradition of boat building and sailing, giving rise to numerous marinas, as well as yacht, beach, tennis and golf clubs that surround the area. The famed Winged Foot Golf Club in the town of Mamaroneck has been the site of U.S. Open Golf Tournaments and other professional play.
The diversity of architectural styles in Mamaroneck adds to its charm. Its streets are dotted with Victorians, Georgians, and Gothic Revivals, along with the more familiar colonials, Tudors and contemporaries. Apartment dwelling is available in the form of cooperative units and rentals, which can be found mainly within walking distance of the train stations.
