The Larchmont, NY Community

Bordering beautiful Long Island sound, the waterfront Town of Mamaroneck is comprised of the Village of Larchmont, the Village of Mamaroneck (which also lies partly in the town of Rye) and an unincorporated area. Occupying 12.5 square miles, with a total population of 52,670, these picturesque waterside communities have been attracting residents since 1661. Centuries of building have left the Town a charming legacy: many vintage homes in a pleasing diversity of architectural styles, an appealing flavor of New England amid tree-lined steets. The salt-water shore of the Sound adds outstanding natural beauty and the many diversions of waterside life to these highly desirable communities.
