Armonk

Located about thirty-five miles from Manhattan, Armonk, NY, is a hamlet in the town of North Castle in Westchester County. In the early 19th century, most North Castle residents were farmers, but by mid-century, construction of a railroad brought a shift away from agriculture. In the early 20th century, the purchase of reservoir land and the construction of the Kensico Dam in Valhalla improved the town???s economy dramatically. The use of North Castle granite and the decision by immigrant stone masons who built the dam to settle in the community were major factors in this resurgence.

Today, Armonk is a picturesque community of about 12,000 residents as well as home to the corporate headquarters for IBM. A bustling town center is surrounded by a variety of distinct neighborhoods. A unique location allows easy access to excellent dining and shopping opportunities throughout Westchester County and in Connecticut. North Castle is known for its parks and green spaces and its ability to have retained its historic character while still allowing for development. Residents actively participate in town affairs to ensure an orderly rate of growth while preserving the quality of the environment. Whippoorwill Country Club, one of the country???s best golf courses, is located in Armonk.
