Tuckahoe – A Village With Rich Resources

The village of Tuckahoe is located within Westchester County and is sixteen miles north of Manhattan and has the Bronx River as its boundary to the west. Locals have easy access to the Metro-North rail system and can arrive in Grand Central Terminal in just a half hour.

Tuckahoe means ‘it is globular’ and refers to the foods eaten, bulb and roots, by the Indian population. In the modern era, the region became known for its rich, high-quality marble deposits and the subsequent industry that arose around it, dubbing the village ‘the marble capital of the world’.

Residents currently can find employment in research, development, and manufacturing. The CBS sitcom, Maude, was produced in Tuckahoe during the 1970s, and Nobel Prize winning scientists, Getrude B. Elion and George H. Hitchings worked on various drugs for the reduction of cancer and autoimmune diseases.
