Get to know Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow

Once Tarrytown and North Tarrytown, respectively, the latter’s residents voted to rename their village in 1996, paying homage to historic area resident Washington Irving. While you won’t cross paths with a headless horseman stalking the foggy, lantern-lit streets of these sisterly river towns, you’ll certainly stumble upon eclectic haunts pouring local craft beer and retailing seashell-shaped chairs. If any legends are true here, it’s how these charming commuter-friendly communities blend together so effortlessly with their breezy, ethereal waterfront. They’re tethered together by a school district and a chamber of commerce, and across both you’ll find art galleries, eclectic design shops and specialty food stores to fill a canvas tote with local fresh pasta. Whether catching a show at the ornate Music Hall or sojourning to the storied gardens of Lyndhurst, the Gothic manse a rosebud’s throw from Main Street, it’s a fine part of Westchester to tarry awhile.

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.
