Named for its most famous inhabitant, noted American author Washington Irving, Irvington in Westchester County, NY, is located within the town of Greenburgh. Like neighbors Tarrytown to the north and Dobbs Ferry to the south, Irvington is one of the county's "rivertowns," with the Hudson River at its western edge. With a population of 6,700 on four square miles, the village of Irvington embodies small-town riverfront charm without pretension.
In 2010, Irvington was listed as #1 in Westchester County in Westchester magazine's "Best Places to Live" ranking, with the explanation that, "this unassuming rivertown is pretty near perfect" for its "darling Main Street, stunning river views," and its "burgeoning dining scene." Irvington boasts a wealth of notable and historic architecture including Irvington Town Hall and Town Hall Theater. Washington Irving's former home, Sunnyside, is technically in Tarrytown, but this living museum is generally accepted as one of the most important places to see in Irvington.
Breathtaking views of the Hudson River speak for themselves (and sunsets may leave you speechless). Riverfront restaurants like Red Hat and Il Sorriso provide front row seats. Though many residents commute to New York City, there are many thriving businesses based in Irvington "including the Columbia University Press and Nevis Laboratories" and that number is growing. Along the waterfront, Bridge Street Properties, a redeveloped collection of warehouses and loft buildings, is being put to new use as offices for a thriving group of 21st century tenants.
Irvington home styles vary from condos and garden-style apartments to family-sized colonials and Cape Cods to sprawling mega-mansions. Homes are more affordable here than in neighboring rivertowns. Community spirit and a love of the arts, architecture and history are very much in evidence here, and high-performing schools are a draw for families with children.
