Welcome to Mamaroneck
A small and vibrant community perfect for those who love life by the water.
Before a London merchant purchased the land that is now Mamaroneck, the area was inhabited by members of the Siwanoy tribe. Its name roughly translates to “the place where the sweet waterfalls into the sea” – an apt name as Mamaroneck was established at the mouth of a river and is situated alongside the Long Island Sound. The town was officially acknowledged in the late 1700s, and early locals made their wages farming, fishing, lumbering, and milling.
Today, Mamaroneck is upheld as a wonderful suburban neighborhood. Its close proximity to water is great for those who enjoy boating and fishing, and its four seasons make for a charming town in the sun and the snow. Many of its residents are energetic and ready to seize the day!
