Mamaroneck (T)

New York is a state in the northeastern United States. Majority of the population is concentrated in the southern portion around New York City, the state is often regionalized into Upstate and Downstate. New York is the home of Ellis Island, where many immigrants in the early 20th century arrived in the United States.
Mamaroneck is a town in Westchester County, New York, United States. The population was 28,967 at the 2000 census. There are two villages contained within the town. These are Larchmont and the Village of Mamaroneck. The majority of the town's land area is not within either village, constituting an unincorporated area, although a majority of the population lives within the villages.
Mamaroneck was incorporated in 1895.  Residents on either side of the Mamaroneck River, realized that the growing community needed services to develop from a rural farming community to a healthy commercial village. In 1890, they realized a new village must be incorporated joining the two areas surrounding the River. The problem with incorporating a new village was that the residents live in two towns, the Town of Mamaroneck and the Town of Rye. The area, located in the Town of Rye, is known as Rye Neck.
