Bob and I use to explore and take a different walk every day when we first moved here. Both of us are outdoor people and this is an outdoor town full of neighbors who love the same things. During the summer, the gazebo at Veteran's Park has free concerts. The town comes out and hundreds of people bring blankets, chairs, picnic baskets and enjoy the music. They start at 6pm and go until it gets dark, rain or shine. Since we have the Yorktown Theatre right there - and it moves into our beautiful theatre which has a consistent amount of plays and the Taconic Opera there throughout the year.
"It has a large front porch, giving it a colonial feel on days nice enough to read outside."
The John C. Hart Library in town is one of my favorite places in Yorktown Heights. It has a large front porch, giving it a colonial feel on days nice enough to read outside. They have programs daily, for adults and kids alike, some with live music and powerful, motivational speakers, and I’ve met some wonderful friends attending this great library.
The Yorktown Chamber of Commerce and Lion's Club does so much for our tight-knit community, and Bob and I have been members since we moved here. They had an Easter bunny breakfast day complete with egg hunting for the lovely children of our town.
Our town loves a good parade, with our best ones happening in the summer months. Our favorite is the fire engine parade where fire trucks come from all over Westchester County. It’'s a must see for our grandson, two-year-old, Mason and his big sister, Maggie. They also love the carnival set up for the weekend with rides, food, vendors and lots of games.
