Welcome to Somers

The friendly town of Somers is located in the northern part of Westchester County, flanked by North Salem and Yorktown and boarded to the south by the Muscoot Reservoir. Just an hour north of New York City, Somers is also serviced by the nearby Metro-North Commuter Railroad, which routes to Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan.

Inhabited originally by Native Americans, the land that would become Somers was part of a tract of land granted to Stephanus Van Cortlandt by the King of England, William III, in 1697. European settlement flooded in during the 18th century, and eventually—after several name changes—the town of Somers was established.

When the Muscoot and Croton rivers had to be flooded to help create New York City’s reservoir system, it impacted the local landscape enough to create small lakeside communities that provided an alluring getaway for urban dwellers. Still fairly residential, Somers’ housing is a beautiful blend of affordable single-family homes ranging in architectural styles to lavish manor houses with mountain views and private ponds on vast acreage.

People & Lifestyle

Somers’ wealth of nature and close-knit community feel create the ideal environment to raise a family. It’s also a wonderful place to retire thanks to its many convenient shops, and most of the employment in the town trends towards white-collar jobs. Those who live here have the luxury of being just a short journey away from New York City and adjacent to several other colorful Westchester towns, all while maintaining Somers’ rural, relaxed, and diverse atmosphere. 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping 

Much of the bustle of Somers is conveniently located near State Route 202, close to Bailey Park. One of the most unique shopping experiences can be found at DeCicco and Sons, a one-stop shop for all of your produce, meat, and quality food needs. The location not only serves as a grocery store for home-baked goods, the freshest ingredients, frozen necessities, and signature prepared foods, it also has a second-floor bar and kitchen lounge, a full-service craft beer and wine bar, a coffee and smoothie bar, and even outdoor seating for dining.

Somers is also home to the original Bobo’s Cafe, where you’ll find premium coffee drinks in addition to some of their signature menu items—like the Marty Huggins, an open-faced bagel sandwich made with dill and scallion sour cream and lox. For unbeatable pub fare, check out The Blazer, where you can indulge in comfort favorites like their housemade chili, wings, or burgers. At King Kone, try one of their rich and creamy ice cream treats to mark the perfect end to your day.

Things to Do

In Somers, the great outdoors provides a bounty of activity for those who wish to explore it. On the 777 acres of Muscoot Farm, families and individuals can learn about history, agriculture, and wildlife, as well as hike the over six miles of available trails. A former functioning dairy farm, Muscoot Farm has over 50 animals to interact with and pet. Another gorgeous, rural visit is the Wilkens Fruit & Fir Farm, where you can pick your own produce and even cut down the perfect Christmas tree.

At the Friends of Lasdon Park and Arboretum, visitors can delight in the many verdant landscapes, lush gardens—including a kid-friendly dinosaur garden and a garden devoted to lilacs—and several trails. One of the most loved trails in the Trail of Honor, a veteran’s memorial pathway that walks visitors through history.

For recreation at the heart of town, look no further than Reis Park. These 82 acres house fitness and nature trails, the town’s public library, playgrounds, athletic fields and courts, a stage, and even a concession stand. The park is conveniently set along Primrose Street and is a popular place to picnic and relax with residents. 


Somers is home to several excellent schools. Top educational opportunities include:

  • John F. Kennedy Catholic Preparatory School, 9-12, highly-rated private high school
  • The New Private School, 9-12, proposed a private boarding school to be built on the former IBM campus
