Hawthorne

About the area

Hawthorne is a 1.1-square-mile hamlet in the Westchester County town of Mount Pleasant. Residents appreciate the warm, small town feel and the friendships they share with their neighbors. Modest homes, many of them Cape Cods and ranches, sit side by side on small lots. Some have been remodeled or rebuilt. On a few cul-de-sacs to the west, houses are newer and lots slightly larger. Hawthorne has 1,350 single-family homes and 55 multifamily homes. There are also 56 condominiums in the Chateau on the Hill complex. There are no cooperative or rental buildings.
