Living in the Village of Larchmont NY

Tucked away right on the shore of the Long Island Sound, the Village of Larchmont is  a world away and just 35 minutes by train from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. Larchmont is a  desirable  community and homes for sale in Larchmont sell very quickly – even in a slow market. In 2005 CNN/Money and Money Magazine ranked Larchmont 11th in their 100 best places to live survey.

The village itself is located in the town of Mamaroneck and many homes with the Larchmont post office are actually located in the unincorporated area of the town of Mamaroneck.  The same holds for the school system with only one elementary school  (Chatsworth Ave.)  being located within the village of Larchmont.

Prior to the turn of the century, Larchmont was something of a resort community for the wealthy of New York.  The opulent turn-of -the-century homes located along the Long Island Sound near Manor Park are reminiscent of that era.

Manor Park itself, is a wonderful destination for those wanting to relax and enjoy the view or walk the dog.  I have frequented the  park with my pets on many occasions and it is always  peaceful and beautifully landscaped.  Although its a private park the people living in the Manor graciously leave it  open to the public from dawn until dusk.  You can click on the link for more photos and information about  the history of  Manor Park.

The village itself is something of a bedroom community, but with a high-end flair.   There are plenty of small boutique shops, high end coffee houses including Starbucks and plenty of fine dining.  Many residents choose to eat out on their way home from work.  People gather at their favorite restaurants including Larchmont Tavern and Chat 19.  The fact that everything is very walkable contributes to the friendly village atmosphere.  People tend to leave the car and walk.

For those who prefer a more urban perspective, Larchmont is just a one exit from the heart of downtown New Rochelle which has plenty of shopping and nightlife.

Some famous people who have lived in Larchmont include:

Timothy Geithner – our current Treasury Secretary,
Maruice Barrymore of the famous Barrymore family
Douglas Fairbanks
Mary Pickford
Joan Rivers

Ruthmarie,

When we lived in CoOp City, we frequented the park that you show on the photo. We used to par adn go to the gazebo and sit there on the bench enjoying the view.

Loved this place, its hundred plus year old trees, the fountain with a mermaid, those quint streets

Hi Jon,

I used to drive by Coop city every day when I was at Einstein.  It's not at all far from  Larchmont.  Manor Park a great park.  I bring the dogs there. My Dad - when he was doing better, used to spend a lot of time there.  The link I have about Manor Park has a video with lots of pics of the park  if you want to take a look. I also like the Rockefeller Preserve more to the west of  the county.  That's a bit more on the wild side - where nature has taken over.  Its quite a contrast to the tamed nature thay you have at Manor Park.

A lot of memories with this wonderful place. It the first par that we, then recent immigrants, settled in CoOp City, found and frequented on weekends. We were poor like church mice at that time, and we were strolling the streets and trying to imagine life behind the walls of those lovely homes... We were taking our little grandson for walks there, and he made a lot of friends with dogs (and their owners),Then we found Pepsico at Purchase

When we are coming to visit friends in New york, we go there every time.

Than you for the memories that you brought back
