Mount Kisco Reviews

Traffic is unbearable and negatively impacts both quality of life for residents, and downtown commercial success for shoppers. Traffic has also negatively impacted the air quality. There is no end to the over development approved by the Chamber of Commerce led government, despite the limitations of the narrow two lane road that is the main thoroughfare to town. A road where traffic constantly comes to a standstill when car trailers try to make turns. On a positive side the town is beautiful. It just needs new government leadership.

Convenient to transportation—railroad station and between two major roadways: i684 & Saw Mill River Parkway, county bus service.
Diversity from very rich to blue collar, from young children to seniors, good mix of ethnicities.
Excellent municipal services, shops, loads of restaurants, small businesses and big box chains for all needs.
Amenities include a large park and fields for all sports, large medical center and extensive medical services centrally located, excellent schools in Bedford Central School District, affordable housing options, excellent library and responsive government.
Something for everyone!
Mt. Kisco is a great town. There are sidewalks throughout town and the surrounding roads, making it very walkable with a lot to see. The 9/11 Memorial is a lovely tribute and a relaxing place to sit and reflect. The library is a treasure, as is the natural beauty that can be enjoyed while walking one of the nature paths around town. Great town park- with tennis courts and a huge pool. Awesome restaurants and lots of community activities going on, from ice-sculptures and parades, to music in the park (pre-pandemic).
Easy commute to NYC and the schools are very good. Great place to raise a family.
