Pelham is a quaint seaside town only 27 minutes away by train from Grand Central Station. Pelham has a very small port town feel. The walkable town center is populated with mom and pop shops, restaurants, bars, and even an old school tackle shop. You won’t find chains in the town center, but you’re only a couple of minutes to a Fairway supermarket or Target (in neighboring southern Mount Vernon). You’ll also find a great old movie theater in Pelham, The Pelham Picture House. The Picture House not only is a great place to see films but it also gets many talk backs with directors and actors in town promoting their films. For example, in March 2017 comedian and actor Robert Klein will be doing a talk back post film screening. The Picture House is also the home to a regular Improv/Sketch group made up of local high school students.
The average sale prices for the area in early 2017 was $825K. Houses closer to town are on smaller lots and have smaller footprints. As you get further away from the town center you’ll come across some really beautiful homes. Styles include Victorian, Mediterranean, Modern, Tudor and plenty of grand Colonials.
The primary town park is Glover Field which is located just south of Colonial Avenue. The park includes a football field (turf), baseball and soccer fields as well as tennis courts, a track, and a new field house. The Sixth Street Playground & Tennis Courts are located between Third and Fourth Avenues. The Sixth Street Park includes toddler and children’s playgrounds and it’s located near the Huguenot Church.
