Irvington

Why Live Here?
The minute you enter Irvington you know you’ve arrived in a very special village. From its beautiful homes to its picturesque shops and extraordinary Hudson River vistas, Irvington is a unique representation of the best of the historic river towns. Four miles square, the village blends its historic past with modern living. The Irvington Town Hall Theatre, for example, is an exact replica of the Ford Theatre in Washington, D.C., presenting contemporary concerts, film festivals and Broadway hits. Irvington’s Town Hall Tiffany Reading Room, one of the few remaining interiors of Louis Comfort Tiffany, offers a free, public reading room today. Preservation of not only Irvington’s classic 19th century architecture but also of nature is a basic tenet of the village and its residents. In the last decade or so, non-industrial development was guided by Scenic Hudson, a non-profit group that oversaw the rehabilitation of a former industrial site into a public space that offers magnificent views of the Hudson River encompassing the Manhattan skyline, the Palisades and the Tappan Zee Bridge with universally accessible walking paths, ball fields and a senior center.

Irvington, named after famous author Washington Irving, is a village within the greater town of Greenburgh. Many of the Main Street boutiques and plethora of excellent restaurants are housed in buildings dating to the 1860s and ‘70s, and residences range from grand 1800s estates to contemporary single family homes and cottages. In addition, Irvington offers co-ops and condos. Commuters heading either to New York City or North can catch a Metro North Hudson Line train. The trip to the City takes about 45 minutes. By car, the Saw Mill River Parkway to the west side of Manhattan can get you there in about the same amount of time, less when it isn’t rush hour.

In addition to the recognition it receives for keeping its village green, preserving its history, its beautiful residential areas and spectacular views, Irvington is known for the caring and welcoming attitude of its residents. The New York Times once wrote, “Irvington is the kind of village, that when you sneeze, 50 people will say ‘bless you.’” Residents talk about the closeness of the community, and the commitment of neighbors to keeping their village a small and caring place. The schools are rated as excellent by residents, both for the quality of education provided and the attentiveness of the teachers.

You can’t go far in Irvington without finding a structure with National Historic Landmark status. The village’s Main Street area has been designated an historic district by New York State, and has been added to the National Register of Historic Places. More than that, Irvington was ranked, in the past seven years, as the “Best Place to Live in Westchester” by Westchester Magazine.
