All About Parkside

The neighborhood Parkside is located in the city of Mount Vernon in Westchester County, New York. South 3rd Avenue runs through the heart of the area. The north border is at West Sandford Blvd, and the Hutchinson River creates the eastern edge.


The area was home to the historic battle site for the Revolutionary War, the Battle of Pell's Point. St. Pauls Church, located on South Columbus Ave, was used as a military hospital during the 1776 battle. The site, now regarded and protected as a national historical site, is home to a burial ground containing over 9,000 graves that date as far back as 1704.

The church bell was cast at the same foundry in 1758 as the Liberty Bell. Under the instruction of General George Washington, the bell was buried to stop the British from melting it for ammunition production. Since then, the bell has been placed back in the church tower where it remains. Today the church no longer holds services but offers visitors tours through the grounds and the neighboring museum.


This upper-middle-class community consists of residents that have lived in the area for over five years. With a vacancy rate of only 7.7%, there are not too many areas without residents.
