Thornwood

Thornwood is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) within the town of Mount Pleasant in central Westchester County, New York. The population was 3,759 at the 2010 census. Like Hawthorne next door, Thornwood has been a bit of an enigma to residents of southern and northern Westchester. But the hamlet, which shares the commercial/industrial corridors of Marble Avenue with Pleasantville and Broadway with Hawthorne, is worth seeking out, as it offers an assortment of housing options—including some lovely Dutch Colonials on slightly larger lots than in pricier adjacent Pleasantville, two shopping centers, and a variety of restaurants. Hawthorne also boasts easy access to the rest of the county via the Saw Mill and Sprain Brook Parkways, and a relatively short commute to Manhattan via Metro-North (Pleasantville or Hawthorne stations).
