What do the residents of Pleasantville do when they get cranky and cannot live up to the descriptor that defines their town? Maybe they go to the Jacob Burns Film Center, where a robust schedule of eclectic documentary and independent films are shown each day. Or they stroll their neighborhood, knowing that most schools, shopping and train stop are within walking distance of their home.
All is pleasant in this Village, located in the Town of Mount Pleasant, just 30 miles from New York City by car or train. There are four municipal parks that encompass 50 acres, not to mention 10 acres of school district fields. Zagat-rated restaurants, like Iron Horse Grill, keep residents happy with their contemporary cuisine and converted space that formerly housed the Pleasantville train station building at the turn of the century.
A sense of place permeates Pleasantville. It was once know as Clark’s Corner, and was among the vast property holdings owned by Frederick Philipse. Pleasantville was a prosperous farming community, and became an important town on the map when the New York Central Railroad established Pleasantville as a train stop in the 1840s.
