"Where Somers goes to shop..."

Baldwin Place is a residential hamlet in the town of Somers, population 20,000. It occupies the northwestern part of the town around Route 6, which is one of the main roads leading from Putnam County to northern Westchester.

The Somers Commons shopping center is the hamlet’s retail hub. The Commons is anchored by a large Stop and Shop grocery store, the largest in the town. There is also a New York Sports Club, a few eateries, Home Goods, and a Goodwill store. With the exception of a few other small shopping areas, there is minimal retail in Somers. However, nearby towns have enough to make up for what Somers lacks. Residents generally prefer to travel a little to shop because they value open space and quiet.

The Mews at Baldwin Place opened last year on 5.7 acres next to Somers Commons. It is an affordable community for seniors with 72 one-bedroom units. Rents are based on income and vary as a result.

Many years ago, there was a Baldwin Place train station on the Putnam line. Today, the station is gone and the tracks have been replaced with the Putnam/North Country Trailway. A large portion of the trail winds through Somers, giving residents a safe and scenic route for walking, running and biking. Residents of Baldwin Place will find additional recreational amenities throughout Somers, including six parks and a private golf course.

The lack of a train station means residents of Baldwin Place must travel, sometimes a good distance, to neighboring towns with direct Metro North Service. Distance is a consideration, but so is availability of parking spaces, which are in short supply at many stations. Some find it more feasible to travel longer if a station has better parking.

Housing inventory in Baldwin Place is limited as it is a small neighborhood. Most of the homes currently on the market are relatively new construction and priced around $500k.
