Wykagyl (New Rochelle)
Wykagyl is a suburban community in New Rochelle, New York. The community is conterminous with zip code 10804.
Wykagyl consists primarily of sprawling, residential parks and neighborhoods, with large "period" homes. Architectural styles include Elizabethan and Cotswold Tudors, Mediterranean-style villas, and classic colonials. At the center of the community is an 18-hole golf course and country club as well as a small business district of retail stores, condominium developments, and houses of worship.
The area's unusual name (pronounced WIHK'-uh-gihl or WICK-uh-gill) is commonly believed to have originated through the combination of two Native American words: "wigwos," meaning "birch bark," and "keag," meaning "country." The name most likely resulted from the shortening of the name of an Algonquian tribe of Native Americans who originally inhabited the area.
