aka MurdaVille aka Money Earnin' Vernon where stars are from...
Home of: Phylicia Rashad (Bill Cosby's TV Wife), Denzel Washington, Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs, Heavy D, Al. B Sure, Ben Gordon (on Chicago Bulls), Lynn From "Good Day NY" (Fox 5 Morning News), Misa Hylton-Brim ,etc!!!
Borders the Bronx
Yes it's Ghetto, but has come up. Both rich and average class folks live there. Most hated on city in Westchester County, and often imitiated..never duplicated. Yonkers, New Rochelle,etc can complain but MV has its history. If Mt. Vernon had as much economic support and land as the other cities, it would be even better!
Person 1: "I'm from Mount Vernon"
Person 2: "Where is it located?"
Person 3: "In Westchester...Next to the Bronx, New Rochelle & Yonkers"
- Mount Vernon Boys' Basketball Team: Successful State Champions several times in a row
- Mount Vernon High School students accepted in top schools such as NYU,Columbia University, Cornell University, UPenn, Princeton, Yale,etc often...so the education must be decent here.
money earnin' mount vernon is the city that heavy "d", denzel washington, and dick clark hail from. (to name a few) (yeah i hate hate dick clark too but whatever) no matter where a kid grows up here they can walk to a ghetto or a extremely wealthy neighborhood, thus creating a keene sense of social class division at a young age...
which can explain why the middle to lower class people from here will forever be chasing paper, and the wealthier people will forever be moving out of town.
Middle Class Person: "Today I walked the length of Gramatan Ave. South to North.. at first I felt as I may get jumped, but by the end people looked at me as I may jump them."
The hoodest place in Westchester. A Blood area, Nickname is Murda Ville, slogan is "Money Earnin Mount Vernon".
There is only one part of Mount Vernon that is good and that's Fleetwood. Where the richer people live.
the hoodest city in westchester, harder than yonkers, new ro, all that...the only place where u got 14 year olds pumpin crack.
jadakiss is bitch when he's out here
often thought of as the ghettoest place in westchester, mount vernon actually contains one million dollar houses in overlapping areas neighboring country clubs in the "elite" bronxville, eastchester, and tuckahoe towns made up of very irish and italian imigrants. the other half is a scaryass place that half the city has never been to, you know, or else they'd get shot.
Person One: "I live in Mt. Vernon."
Person Two: "Oh..."
Person One: "No, no, but I REALLY live in Bronxville."
Person Two: "Ohhhh!"
MurDaVille, Money Earnin', Mo V., Da Ville, Murda Mount are all the same thing. 1 of 3 NYC suburbs on the north border of the Bronx (Mt.Vernon, Yonkers and New Rochelle). Consists of 3 main neighborhoods: Fleetwood, Chester Heights, and Da Ville. Fleetwood is rich people (from what I hear), Chester Heights is too, and Da Ville is the ghetto. There is one project on 3rd and 7th called Levister Towers. Everywhere else in Da Ville is depressed and ghetto. The only 2 shopping centers are The Ave. (4th Ave.), and Gramatan Ave. Rich, white folks go to Gramatan to shop, hood people go to the Ave. Has the highest crime rate in Westchester county. Also has a higher crime rate than NYC(check the stats). Home of world famous strip club Sue's Rendezvous. Childhood home of up and coming rapper PureComp. More recently, the home to the MurDaVille Bloods, mainly on 3rd and 3rd. Only 4.2 square miles. Rejected by NYC and Yonkers. Yonkers people swear they better than us. Guess what? You're not. Start a conversation with anybody 4rm Y-O and the first thing they'll say is, "Well in Yonkers..." MURDAVILLE STAND THE F**K UP!!!!! S. FULTON AVE. ALL DAY!!! R.I.P. 2-5.
