We Are Fortunate to Live in Larchmont

Now that Labor Day has come and gone, it’s time to reflect on how fortunate we are to live in Larchmont. Looking at the difficult economic times, Larchmonters have such terrific facilities open to the public.

A makeover of Flint Park, including the environmental trail along the water and refurbishment of the tennis courts, courtesy of the Millstein family, make that a favorite spot for sports. Manor Beach is a wonderful place to relax, enjoy the cleaner waters of Long Island Sound, and revel in the beauty of the surroundings. If you love to swim, there’s no better facilitiy than Hommocks Pool. Given the strange weather this summer, having a roof overhead meant no lost swimming days.

While not all free, the costs of these facilities are in the reach of most families, and summer in Larchmont on Long Island Sound is an idyllic time.

    Dear Marlene,
    your article is ever so true!
    We are a German family in the diplomatic service and had the pleasure and honour to live in Larchmont from 1995 till 1999 while being posted to New York. And we enjoyed every minute of it! Our youngest daughter was born during that time and all five of us still share the kindest memories of this wonderful place and the wonderful people we met there. The four years in Larchmont had a strong impact on us: not only had our three kids the chance to become bi-lingual, but we all feel very strong about German-American friendship and certain habits have become an integral part of our family life: we still carve pumpkins for Halloween, we share a turkey with friends every Thanksgiving, and we still have the VL- sticker on the bumper of our old Volvo. When one of our former neighbours (yes, we are still in contact with some of them) informed us about the Larchmont Gazette in 2006 we immediately became subscribers and have enjoyed reading it ever since. After Larchmont we returned to Berlin, then went to Boston, to Berlin again and are now living in Vienna, but nothing compares to Larchmont. We will continue to read about things going on in Larchmont and dream about returning one day – who knows!
    Best regards to you and your wonderful village,
    Susanne Vogel-Kuentzle
