River Towns

About 20 miles north of Manhattan lies the River Towns of Ardsley, Hasting on Hudson, Dobbs Ferry, Irvington, Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow, the latter perhaps best known as the home of Washington Irving. The villages are connected by the Old Croton Aqueduct, which is great for hikers and cyclists.

The River Towns have also emerged as a regional haven for food lovers, who can choose from restaurants, some with Hudson River views, that feature many cuisines. There are many cultural events, museums and historic sites, and private schools. With their relaxed vibe and laid-back, small-town feel, these towns offer a very different feel to the Sound communities. The physical terrain is rocky and hilly with varying elevations. The Metro North services these towns with an easy commute to NYC.
