No, itís not the movie. Itís one of the villages in the Town of Mount Pleasant, South East of New York. The seat of the Village Government is found in 80 Wheeler Ave Pleasantville, NY 10570. The village has well-known printing and publishing facilities, such as The Readersí Digest Corporation.
It is home to 7,172 people (2000 Census), and has an area of 1.8 mi≤, none of which is covered with water. Majority of the population, of course, is White, but over the years it has become diverse and is now made up of Hispanics or Latinos, African-Americans, Asians, Native Americans, and residents with a mixture of two or more races. The per capita income for the village is $41,397; however, more than 300 people and 36 families are living below the poverty line.
Settled in 1695 and formerly known as "Clark's Corners," the Village was once a stop along the Underground Railroad. Pleasantville became an autonomous local government in 1897. Notably, Pleasantville is home to a campus of Pace University.
Today the Village is now a regional destination, well reputed for the quality of its public services, public schools, fine arts, dining, and community experiences. Its name is synonymous with extraordinary neighborliness, volunteerism, tranquility and tolerance, attributes that are embraced by all who live or work there.
