Tarrytown

Why Live Here?
Tarrytown, a village in the Town of Greenburgh, located on the eastern bank of the Hudson River, has long been a sought-after place to be for its river views, historic homes and culture. About 25 miles north of midtown Manhattan, the village is well-connected for commuters who are served by a stop on the Metro-North Hudson railroad line, proximity to the Tappan Zee Bridge that crosses the Hudson, and the New York State Thruway. As a transportation alternative, the Bee-Line Bus system delivers residents to other business areas. Tarrytown is steeped in history and has been nick-named one of the “Prettiest Towns in America” by Forbes Magazine. The Village of Sleepy Hollow, formerly named North Tarrytown, is just to the north.

Tarrytown is a diverse community with a vibrant and attractive downtown that centers on many restaurants, shops and amenities. Shoppers love browsing the many establishments, from art galleries to antique stores to one-of-a-kind jewelry stores to a veritable treasure trove of specialty shops. It is home to a number of historic sites such as author Washington Irving’s home, Sunnyside and Lyndhurst, a Gothic Revival mansion and The Tarrytown Music hall, one of the oldest surviving theaters in Westchester County, with a façade that is considered to be one of the finest examples of Queen Anne decorative brickwork in the country. On the National Register for Historic Places, it remains a fully operating theater offering performances in music, theatre, dance and film.

Residential areas, uphill and downhill, are interspersed with parks and green spaces and showcase Tarrytown’s many housing choices, from large estates to single and multi-family homes and co-ops and condominiums. The village maintains several parks, including Pierson Park on the waterfront where you find tennis and basketball courts and picnic areas. There are two well-equipped marinas for boaters, and lots of great biking, running and walking paths and trails including The Scenic Hudson River Walk.

Recreational opportunities are plentiful. The Recreation Department works hard to serve every age group in its offerings, from a men’s softball league to youth soccer, and a family-friendly YMCA offers other active choices. For those seeking quieter pursuits, the Warner Library is the site for plentiful programming and events, from a concert series, book fairs, a chess club, cooking demonstrations, gardening classes, and book groups that often invite featured authors to attend.

Why We Love It
Experiencing a Tarrytown Third Friday is the best way to end a busy week! On the third Friday of most months, there are always musical or artistic things to hear and see, and many shops, vendors and restaurants offer specials. Right on the downtown streets, rain or shine! It is so much fun! ~ Tina

There are tons of restaurants making it hard to choose where to go, but for great food and beverages plus a spectacular view, I love the Sunset Cove and the Striped Bass where you can watch the sun set over the Hudson while you sip or dine. Beautiful. ~ Kristen
