The 411: A cozy riverfront community with sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline, Hastings-on-Hudson is a quiet village nestled along the eastern bank of the Hudson River. A former industrial center, Hastings’s waterfront is slowly transforming from an area rife with abandoned factories to one comprising restaurants, parks, and tennis courts. The village has long been a haven for writers, artists, and academics, and, remarkably, the small hamlet boasts five Nobel laureates. Shoppers and diners welcome the conspicuous absence of chain stores and franchises, city-bound commuters enjoy a short train ride to Grand Central (38 minutes), and nature lovers delight in the community’s many public playing fields and parks, including a scenic section of the ubiquitous Old Croton Aqueduct Trail.
