About the area

Welcome to Mamaroneck Vilage – a low-key vibe on the Long Island Sound. An unpretentious place with a vibrant downtown and miles of coastline, the village is also surprisingly diverse, thanks to a wide range of housing. The village’s southern border is formed by six miles of Long Island Sound coastline, dotted with homes, beach clubs and the 44-acre Harbor Island Park. The park, with its beach, boat launch and stunning vistas, is a short walk from the train station along Mamaroneck Avenue, filled with shops and restaurants. The village of Mamaroneck is defined by the presence of the Long Island Sound. In warmer months, water-lovers can enjoy swimming, boating, fishing and stand-up paddle boarding. Then there is Mamaroneck Avenue, the village’s commercial center, with popular haunts like Sal’s pizza and Miller’s toy store, plus various restaurants and the soon-to-open, six-screen Mamaroneck Cinemas. Nature lovers can explore the 35-acre Otter Creek Preserve, home to marine and avian wildlife. Culture seekers can choose from the Emelin Theater’s roster of music, comedy, dance, theater and film. Hot dog fans can visit the pagoda-style Walter’s, family-owned since 1919.
