Mahopac is a hamlet in the town of Carmel in Putnam County.  It has
a total area of 6.4 square miles and a population around 8,500.  Mahopac
was primarily a summer resort, but has since evolved into a popular year round
community with many of its residents making the commute to New York City. 
The Mahopac business area, located at Routes 6 and 6N, thrives as a shopping
center for visitors and residents alike.  Mahopac encircles a picturesque
587 acre lake, from which it draws its name.  Lake Mahopac contains three
islands, Fairy, Petre, and Canopus, all of which are privately owned.
