Beautiful small town in Putnam county, but with larger city conveniences of malls, stores, services, well-rated schools, etc. With a small population (8,478 in year 2000) and located not far from Route 684 (west of Danbury CT and northeast of Peekskill on the Hudson. The following community information was copied (on 2/22/2006) from a internet information page located at http://www.city-data.com/city/Mahopac-New-York.html. The information is presented below in an effort to facilitate more diversity not dissuade it and to faciliate more acceptance of variety not lessen it. For example, a buyer who is interested in learning more about Italian-American culture may be interested in locating in Mahopac because of the high percentage (34.2%) of residents of Italian-American heritage. People, of course, should not discriminate negatively as it is not only against the law but it is unethetical and not in keeping with many of the values of being a good citizen and moral member of our society.
