The 411: One of Westchester’s Hudson River communities, Tarrytown is a quaint village in the Town of Greenburgh where the Tappan Zee Bridge crosses the Hudson from Rockland County. Just a short walk to the waterfront, the picturesque downtown has limited “big box” presence and is replete with antiques stores and both casual and upscale eateries. Points of interest include Sunnyside, historic home of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow author Washington Irving; Lyndhurst, a 67-acre Gothic Revival mansion previously owned by railroad developer Jay Gould; The Castle on the Hudson, a Norman-style replica castle and luxury inn; and Tarrytown Music Hall, an 843-seat Queen Anne-style theater built in 1885. A free public festival, Tarrytown Third Friday, is held on the third Friday of every month, plus there are monthly waterside concerts at Pierson’s Park. Residents have access to the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail, a walking path that runs from Yonkers north to Croton-on-Hudson.
