Located just 31 miles north from Grand Central Terminal in NYC, the Village of Pleasantville is "home, sweet home" for over 7000 residents. Its name is synonymous with extraordinary neighborliness, volunteerism, tranquility and tolerance, attributes that are embraced by all who live or work here.
Settled in 1695 and formerly known as "Clark's Corners," the Village was once a stop along the Underground Railroad. Pleasantville became an autonomous local government in 1897. The original home of The Readers Digest corporation, the Village is now a regional destination, well reputed for the quality of its public services, public schools, fine arts, dining, and community experiences.
