Mitry-Mory is a commune in the northeastern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 24.4 km. (15.2 miles) from the center of Paris, in the Seine-et-Marne département (Île-de-France) and just off the N2 dual lane National Highway (the US equivalent of interstate highways).
About one-sixth of Charles de Gaulle International Airport (essentially runways and taxiways) lies on the territory of the commune of Mitry-Mory--mostly at the end of the runway. 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 center another very promonent feature is a huge parking lot for such a small commune.
Many of the streets and roads are named for famous people: Mozart, Guy-Lusac, Leon Foucault, Berlioz, Piccaso, 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.
As of the census of 1999, the town has a population of .
