A Day in Irvington


Welcome to Irvington, New York, less than an hour from New York City, yet a world away. This historic Hudson River town invites you to slow down, take in expansive waterfront views, and enjoy.


The Old Croton Aqueduct trail runs straight through Irvington near the top of Main Street. A walk along this wide tree-lined path in either direction immerses you in the great outdoors and takes you past some of Irvington’s most beautiful homes and side roads.



The Irvington Waterfront
Down by the river …
Make it a point to wander along the water’s edge while you are here. This is one of the widest points of the Hudson, with stunning views of the cliffs of the Palisades and the Manhattan skyline in one direction.


Stay for Dinner
An array of eateries …
Irvington is home to a range of restaurants along Main Street and near the river. All within walking distance from the Learning Lab and the train station, you can round out your day in Irvington with a relaxing meal and some good conversation.


Make it a Weekend
Charm and history …
Discover Irvington’s neighboring Hudson River towns, offering charming downtowns with antique shops, art galleries, and restaurants galore. Step back in time at nearby historic sites, including Washington Irving’s enchanting Sunnyside home and Lyndhurst, an iconic Gothic Revival mansion and National Historic Landmark. There are many hotels and B&B options in the area.

Main Street Irvington stretches for 9 blocks and runs uphill away from the river. Get in some cardio with a brisk walk — or take a more leisurely stroll, relaxing along the way on one of the many benches that line the street.
