"Pleasantville: A village of one's own"

The folks who live here make things happen. The founders and early supporters of the Jacob Burns Film Center are local. The year-round outdoor/indoor Farmer's Market is managed by a non-profit board of residents. The annual Pleasantville Music Festival, a Westchester Magazine "Best of" selection, organized by volunteers, presents national acts and dozens of talented local musicians. Neighbors respond to the needs of neighbors in an all-volunteer Fire Department. The award winning schools thrive because of an ongoing conversation between community members and the District's administration. After-school activity abounds in part because there is no school bus system. Student activities in the three schools and the Public Library, which are all within two and half blocks of each other, thrive because there is no need to rush to return home at the end of the school day.
Having lived here for 23 years I remain deeply impressed by the willingness of our neighbors to celebrate each others joy and support each other in times of need.
