My family has been looking to potentially buy a house in Mamaroneck...but it looks like the village was seriously flooded in 2007 and 2011...I am trying to assess which streets and areas are prone to flooding...Does anyone know whether West Street/Rose Avenue area crossing into Harrison towards DeCicco Markets get any water?

I don't live in Mamaroneck, but according to the Westchester mapping site, that area is not in a flood zone

Thank you, Jaymtea...I checked the maps too...but wanted to see whether anyone had personal experiences...I remember speaking to a neighbor when attending an open house once....and even though the street was not in a flood zone, it still got a lot of water and basements were affected...

Westchester County is a very wet county. Most houses should have a sump pump. You may still get water because your neighbor doesn't have proper drainage, sloping ground or heavy rains.
