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.
