Located in southern Westchester County, Larchmont and Mamaroneck are picturesque communities on the shore of Long Island Sound. These beautiful sound shore communities share one unique feature. Steps from the water's edge, they boast an attraction that is their alone - over twelve miles of combined shoreline with scenic harbors, marinas, sandy beaches and more than 323 acres of parkland. Those who live here quickly become spoiled by the wealth of recreational opportunities and the picture postcard view of water, sky, and sailboats.
Named after the Indian word meaning "where the fresh water meets the salt", the Village of Mamaroneck grew around its inland harbor, which is the second largest natural small boat harbor on the East Coast. Larchmont's waterfront features Manor Park and Beach, with lovely gazebos and six acres. Larchmont Harbor and Horseshoe Harbor provide deep-water mooring for crafts of all sizes.
The allure of Larchmont and Mamaroneck goes beyond their setting. Residents agree that while New York City is a half-hour away, they don't have to leave their own backyard to enjoy the same first-rate culture. The quaint and lively villages have an abundance of eclectic shops, outstanding restaurants and superb entertainment. Only a handful of New York City suburbs can hope to offer as much as the southern Westchester communities of Larchmont and Mamaroneck.
