I have lived in Mount Vernon for the last 14 years. Recently someone asked me if I lived close to the highway and I had to think about it. I didn't think I did because it is so quiet and residential where I live. Then I thought, well, maybe I do live close by. And I started to look it up. To the Hutch, 1.04 miles, to I 95 1.76 miles, I am so close to all the shopping too. I can go to the big box stores within 2 miles, Fairway, and any ethnic speciality shop you can think of. I can walk a few blocks to Metro North and be in Grand Central in 26 minutes. I can jump on a Beeline bus a half block from my house and connect with the entire NYC Transit system for the same fare. I can be at LaGuardian in 20 minutes (barring bad traffic) or use JFK, or the Westchester County Airport. I can travel to any of the many Westchester shopping areas with ease, make my way to Connecticut in 15 minutes or head upstate in a half hour. And I can sit in my yard, look at the stars and toast marshmallows in my chiminea. I wonder what wine goes with marshmallows. Hmmm I sense another blog coming. I love my Mount Vernon, super convenient and one of the most affordable options in Westchester county.
