The 411: Named for its most famous resident, author Washington Irving (whose home, Sunnyside, stands as the village’s preeminent tourist attraction), this jewel of a riverfront village is replete with grand estates from its golden age in the 1800’s. Today, Irvington offers a full range of housing options, from condos and co-ops to older village Colonials and single-family homes of all sizes.
With its tree-lined downtown and lack of major shopping centers, Irvington is the quiet sibling among the villages and hamlets in the Town of Greenburgh. Spread out over four square miles, the village offers easy access to New York City and affordable prices for home-buyers. And it is blessed with one of the most picturesque main streets anywhere, which runs due west from Route 9 to offer a breathtaking panorama of the Hudson, the Tappan Zee Bridge, and postcard-worthy sunsets. Many abandoned industrial sites along Irvington’s waterfront recently have been transformed into thriving offices, art galleries, and restaurants.
