Get to know Irvington

Bring your cultural appetite to Irvington, a small river town with big city clout. The village satiates cravings for both finer dining and art outside museum walls, with restaurants, galleries and art studios straddling its Main Street as it slopes towards the SoHo-style loft buildings along the waterfront. It counts Astors, Tiffanys and Hamiltons among its past residents, not to mention Cosmopolitan magazine — Stanford White designed their historic headquarters in 1895, and it’s still here. The silhouette of Manhattan’s skyline hangs on the horizon as the hills of northern Hudson Valley roll towards distant rural abandon. Wander Scenic Hudson Park, by the train station, or visit the Public Library’s Reading Room, where Louis Comfort Tiffany’s aquamarine glass mosaics still shine under restored lanterns. Irvington’s duality of downtown affairs and a sweeping landscape that keeps frenetic energy at bay makes you feel like you can have your cake and eat it, too — try a gluten-free one from Red Barn Bakery.

Living in Westchester

Don’t call it upstate. This cosmopolitan county north of New York City is a collective of towns, hamlets and mid-sized cities that put virtually every lifestyle imaginable within an hour’s commute of Manhattan. It’s due north of the Bronx, next door to Connecticut, and the gateway to the Hudson Valley. Metro-North’s Harlem, Hudson and New Haven lines make for speedy service into Grand Central — an express ride from many down-county communities runs comparable to the F train from South Brooklyn, with a much sunnier view. Lower Westchester’s villages prioritize convenience, while the verdant horse country to the north is a favored destination for those looking to fade away in privacy. The Hudson and Long Island Sound form its two coasts, conspiring with an inland chain of lakes and reservoirs for unbeatable boating, fishing and other recreational endeavors. Chain stores are noticeably absent from many Main Streets, which run chockablock with character-filled indie shops.
