    Mount Vernon is one of the top ten most populous cities in the state of New York. With many neighborhoods, the city is divided into 4 major sections: The Northside (neighborhoods include Fleetwood, Chester Heights, Huntswood, Estate Manor/Aubyn Estates, and Oakwood Heights); The Southside; Mount Vernon Heights; and Downtown.

    Fleetwood is known as the little village in the big city. With tree-lined streets, tudor-style co-op buildings and 70 shops within a 3 block area, Fleetwood is the ultimate walking community. The Bayou, Buona Sera, Maggie Spillane’s, plus an assortment of cafes, delis and bagel shops keep residents well-fed.

    The Horizon at Fleetwood, a new construction condominium, recently opened its doors for sale. The building features one- and two-bedroom homes, many with outdoor space, and a full array of amenities, including a Fitness Center, Library, Concierge, Package Room, and Rooftop Garden with 360 degree views of Westchester County and New York City.

    Mount Vernon is a commuter’s dream. The city offers 3 different Metro-North stations: Mount Vernon East, Mount Vernon West and Fleetwood. The Cross County Parkway, the Bronx River Parkway, and the Hutchinson River Parkway, I-95 and I-87 are all less than a mile from Mount Vernon's borders, and when headed south, will get you to the city by car in less than 30 minutes.
