Welcome to my hometown, Pleasantville! It's a charming small town, a suburb of New York, in Westchester County. It's only 31 miles from New York City and has about 7,000 residents. It was settled in 1695 and is a very family-friendly town with wonderful people. We love it here! This is our town clock on Washington Avenue in the village, where there are many nice little shops and great restaurants. I'm contributing my photo to Friday My Town Shoot Out!! at http://mytownshootout.blogspot.com/, where today's theme is "town clocks." And there it is, the Pleasantville clock! I think it rocks!
This is my favorite coffee shop on Wheeler Avenue, which is right across from the train station. I usually get a nice cup of hot chocolate in the morning before I walk across the street to catch my train to New York City. Young people especially love this spot and like to hang out in this area of the village. As you can see in the window reflection, a young girl is reading and listening to music, and two kids on the street are ready to go skateboarding! I also love the flowers in the coffee cans on the little tables outside of the coffee shop. I'm contributing my street scene to Walk in New York at http://walkinnewyork.blogspot.com/.
This is our Church on Bedford Avenue. I like this close-up shot which shows the brick facade, stained glass windows and pointed roof with crosses that look like stars in the sky. A very quaint Church in a wonderful community of lovely people!
