Info for Amawalk Luxury Car Service
Amawalk is one of five communities in the Town of Somers in Westchester County, New York. The other communities are Baldwin Place, Granite Springs, Lincolndale, and Shenorock. The Town of Somers is located in the northern part of Westchester County, NY.
The town used to be known in 1788 as Stephentown in honor of Stephanus Van Cortland, one of its founding citizens who served King William III of England. However, there already existed a Stephentown in Renssealaer County. The resulting confusion, particularly in mail delivery, led to a change in the name to Somerstown and in 1808 to the Town of Somers. The town was named as a tribute to Captain Richard Somers, a young naval officer from New Jersey who lost his life in the Tripolitan War. A memorial in West Somers Park was erected in his honor at Memorial Day ceremonies in 1958.
