Yorktown is an unincorporated hamlet community 40 miles north of New York City. Yorktown real estate offers higher priced modern homes to affordable 3 bedroom houses, and scenic waterfront property. It is one of five hamlets that make up the town of Yorktown; the other four are Shrub Oak, Jefferson Valley, Crompond and Mohegan. Framed by Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park, Amawalk Reservoir and New Croton Reservoir, Yorktown Heights offers a quiet and scenic lifestyle. A central location within Westchester County near several major roadways adds convenience as well. With a reasonably affluent population of about 8,000 residents, it isn?t surprising that Yorktown Heights has a cozy, community-oriented atmosphere. Fun annual events include Yorktown?s Firemen's Parade, Carnival and country fair known as the Yorktown Grange. Nearby attractions like Franklin D.
