Unlike some nearby communities, Mount Kisco is ethnically diverse, having attracted immigrants from Italy, Ireland and, more recently, Latin America.
The bustling northern Westchester County village was profiled this week in The New York Times.
In the article titled, "Affordable, Walkable and Multicultural," the Times wrote: "Good schools, check. Train station no more than an hour’s commute from Manhattan, check. Proximity to parks and forests, check."
According to the Times, Mount Kisco’s housing stock serves a spectrum of income levels and stages of life.
Nearly half the village's 4,094 residential units are apartments: condominiums, cooperatives and rentals, some designated as income-restricted, some for ages 55 and older.
About 300 multifamily homes are situated around the downtown. And Mount Kisco's 1,450 single-family houses, from starter homes to million-dollar properties, are clustered in tree-shaded neighborhoods and include colonials, Victorians, ranches and Tudors, predominantly on quarter- to half-acre lots.
