The Westchester County city of Mount Vernon is the eighth most populated city in New York. Along the border of the Bronx, Mount Vernon comprises four major sections within its 4.4-square mile area: Downtown, Northside, Southside and Mount Vernon Heights. Contrary to popular belief, Mount Vernon was not named after George Washington’s Virginia plantation. Rather, it was named for its green mount by Anne Hutchinson in the 17th century.

Residents enjoy extensive cultural, educational and public services. The Mount Vernon Public Library, which opened in 1904, was gifted to the city from philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. In recent years, the city has undergone a transformation from a city of small businesses and residences to an area of regional commerce. Mount Vernon is also known for its cultural diversity: its residents comprise about 100 nationalities. The Mount Vernon public school system includes two high schools, one alternative high school, two middle schools and 11 elementary schools.

Residents enjoy numerous city and county-owned parks and athletic fields, including the 23-acre Willson’s Woods Park, which boasts a wave pool and other water features as well as areas for fishing and picnicking. Hunt’s Woods preserve is popular with outdoor enthusiasts, who seek out its hiking and nature trails, and various outdoor baseball fields and a domed sports complex are found at Hutchinson Field.

Metro-North has two stops within Mount Vernon: the north-south Harlem line stops at Mount Vernon West and Fleetwood, and the east-west New Haven Line stops in the city’s downtown.
