Irvington Outranks Mamaroneck?

We already know that Mamaroneck is a great place to live (Why else would we be here?) but
formal recognition from “outsiders” is always good to get too.
That’s why we like that Mamaroneck has been named by Westchester Magazine as the fifth best place to live in the county, based factors like diversity, housing, schools, nightlife, proximity to water and all those other things that go into compiling such rankings.
Out of the list of 40 such places, only Irvington, Ossining, Dobbs Ferry and Hastings-on-Hudson in that order placed above Mamaroneck – making our hometown the only Sound Shore community to rank in the Top 10 (though neighboring Scarsdale came in No. 7).
As the magazine says, “Check it out on a Thursday night—the town is jumping with music, outdoor dining, and shops open late for business. As for proximity to water, you couldn’t get much closer, and there’s plenty for everyone to do along the Long Island Sound shoreline, from the weekly farmers’ market in the warmer months to opportunities to kayak and sail, and playgrounds and ball fields for youngsters.”
Nothing we didn’t know first, right? (Now does that include the Town of Mamaroneck, with a Larchmont P.O. too?)
