Pleasantville

Pleasantville is a village in Westchester County, New York, United States. The population was 7,019 at the 2010 census.[1] It is located in the town of Mount Pleasant. Pleasantville is home to a campus of Pace University. Pleasantville's reputation as a cultural center was enhanced in 2001 with the opening of the nonprofit Jacob Burns Film Center in the landmark Rome Theater, a Spanish mission-style building and one of the first movie theaters in Westchester County. The Burns Center is dedicated to presenting independent, documentary, and world cinema. Another addition to Pleasantville's cultural scene is the Pleasantville Music Festival, made possible by the Village, over 150 volunteers and the PEAK 107.1, an all-day outdoor event stage at Parkway Field on the second Saturday in July.


In 1948, in an unincorporated area of Pleasantville off Bear Ridge Road, acolytes of Frank Lloyd Wright began putting their lessons to work by building homes in their mentor's modernist, open-plan style. The neighborhood, called Usonia Homes, comprises 50 houses spread among 100 acres (0.40 km2) of wooded hillside; the development includes two houses designed by Wright himself.[24]
