Hastings-on-Hudson

This former industrial center used to host a waterfront permeated by a large number of smoke stacks and industrial buildings. However, today, those abandoned factories are slowly but surely being replaced by a vast selection of restaurants, parks, and tennis courts. Located on the eastern banks of the Hudson, this riverside community has been a well-known gem for writers, artists, and academics over the years, including former publisher of The New York Times, Adolph Ochs and influential author of the 1963 novel The Graduate, Charles Webb. Furthermore, Hastings-on-Hudson—a part of the town of Greenburgh—boasts five Nobel Prize winners, including Max Theiler, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1951 “for his discoveries concerning yellow fever and how to combat it.”

The prominent absence of chain stores and franchises is celebrated among the inhabitants of Hastings-on-Hudson and, although this cozy village might appear as isolated, it offers spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline and is only a 38 minute train ride away from Grand Central Station.
