Mitry-Mory is a commune in the Seine-et-Marnemarker department in the Île-de-Francemarker region in north-central Francemarker. It is located in the north-eastern suburbs of Parismarker . (15.2 miles) from the center just off the N2 national highway.

About one-sixth of Charles de Gaulle International Airportmarker (CDG) (essentially runways and taxiways) lies on the territory of the commune of Mitry-Mory—mostly at the end of the runway. The construction of CDG caused the closure of the prewar Mitry-Mory airfield. From the air, the most prominent feature,aside from farmland, is the Great circle (or round- about) of Rue de la Garenne, a feature which forms a wagon wheel like structure with spokes forming a cross in which a crucifix building is surrounded by another inter-circle round-about. It is also a major railroad centre. Another very prominent feature is a huge parking lot for such a small commune.

Many of the streets and roads are named for famous people: Mozart, Guy-Lussac, Léon Foucault, Berlioz, Picasso, Gauguin among others — some of whom actually visited there.

Mitry-Mory is very convenient to Paris and a less expensive place to live for those who work in Paris but prefer the commute by train or road.

Twin towns

It is twinned with the English town of Prudhoemarker in Northumberlandmarker.
