About Mount Vernon

Mount Vernon is a city in Westchester County, New York. It is just north of New York City's Bronx border.

With a population of 68,321 residents as of the 2000 Census, it is the eighth largest city in New York State. The city's eastern and western borders are the Hutchinson River and the Bronx River, respectively, and it lies between the New York City borough of the Bronx to the south, and the Town of Eastchester (of which it was once a part) to the north. By population, it is the third largest of three principal cities in Westchester County after Yonkers and New Rochelle

History

In 1850, John Stevens, a merchant tailor from New York City, set out to improve the condition of the working class in New York. Among his goals was to create a property-holding class out of rent payers. To this end he organized the Industrial Home Association No. 1 of New York. Qualifications for membership were moral character, industrious habits and the desire to promote a common purpose.

1,017 due-paying members joined the Association, which purchased the land that then became the Village of Mount Vernon. It consisted of five farms with a combined area of about 370 acres (1.5 km²), costing a total of $75,342.88, or roughly $205 per acre. The land extended from what is now Union Avenue on the east to Fifteenth Avenue on the west; and from Valentine Street on the north to Sandford Boulevard (6th Street) and a small portion of Kingsbridge on the south.

Mount Vernon at this time consisted mainly of farm lands crossed by two important railroads, the New York and Harlem (that already had a station there) and the New York and New Haven (that had no station until the Industrial Home Association built one for it).

Central Mount Vernon remained mostly undeveloped until Charles Crary bought land on Chester Hill in 1869. He laid out orderly building lots and placed restrictions on the use of the lots and who could purchase them. Chester Hill became a privileged community.

In 1897, when the City of New York merged with Brooklyn and several towns in Queens County, Mount Vernon was offered the opportunity to join Bronx County as a part of New York City. The residents of Mount Vernon rejected the proposal.

Mount Vernon was officially incorporated as a city in 1892. It had previously been part of the Town of Eastchester.

Recreation

Within the city are a number of city parks large and small. The city is also home to Wilson Woods Park, a 23-acre county-owned park which features swimming, picnicking, hiking, fishing, and biking. Straddling both the eastern border of Fleetwood and the western border of Chester Heights is Hunt's Woods, a county preserve taken over by the city in 1967 [2]. It is a small stretch of open woods with hiking and nature trails that is relatively unknown even to most residents of the city [3].

Numerous events take place periodically during the year, both indoors and outdoors. The Ice Hutch is a domed sports complex where ice hockey is played during the winter, located on the grounds of Hutchinson Field, on the southbound side of the Hutchinson River Parkway. Indoor golf and tennis are also available at the Ice Hutch throughout the year. Outdoors at Hutchinson Field, there are many minor-league fields and a batting cage. Hooperstown, a sports facility located on Sandford Blvd., contracts basketball-court time to teams and leagues and use of the facility for baseball clinics. It also rents the facility to other businesses that may offer one-on-one training or fitness camps. It is not yet open to the public. Adjacent to Hutchinson Field is the stadium-like Memorial Field, which contains a track for running, a soccer/football field, and a tennis court.

The city hosts many annual events, such as the Arts on Third Street Festival that is held in September, Parade of Flags in October, the MVCSD's Band Day Parade parade which is held in June, the Veterans Day parade which is held in November, Ben Gordon Day in August and the go-cart Grand Prix which is held in June or July in the downtown.
