Mount Vernon is a City rich with history, business opportunities, friendly people and beautiful homes. With a population of over 70,000 residents, Mount Vernon is a diverse community and home to many people from all walks of life, cultures and ethnicities. Our diverse population makes Mount Vernon a unique and attractive location to live and open a business.
Located in Westchester County just north of New York City, Mount Vernon is a centrally located community and provides easy assess to public transportation through our remodeled transportation hub and has two Metro North rail lines servicing three stations. In addition, Mount Vernon is surrounded by three major highways and is just five minutes from Interstates 87 and 95.
Today, Mount Vernon is at an important threshold in its progress. Mount Vernon continues to be an affordable community and a safe and secure suburban-urban enclave offering high quality lifestyles in a convenient location. New housing construction is underway and real estate prices continue to rise. The business and corporate sectors have shown confidence in our community and are investing in our future. We are happy to share our community with visitors from surrounding cities through the many shopping outlets in our city including Best Buy, Staples, Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, Petco and TJ Maxx. Even with these great establishments we are looking forward to the expansion of our business community. Our parks and historical attractions add to the pride that we have for the city of Mount Vernon. In the very near future Memorial field will be renovated into a state of the art multi-purpose athletic field. We also offer many outdoor activities including the Arts on Third Festival, and our very popular Summer Breeze Concert Series.
Our goal for the City of Mount Vernon is to make a Great City even better. Through our citywide campaign of developing a realistic and attainable Comprehensive Plan and our programs to attract new businesses and economic development there is no doubt that we are well on our way.
If you are a business interested in exploring a new opportunity or a family looking for a safe and convenient place to settle, I invite you to “discover” Mount Vernon.
