Welcome to Tarrytown
Nestled between Sleepy Hollow and Irvington, Tarrytown has a mixed urban/suburban feel. For decades it was home to a General Motors plant, but has been re-invented as a hip destination for restaurants and shops of all kinds with everything from historic mansions to luxury condominiums with stunning views of the Hudson River.
Among the remaining historic mansions open to the public is the majestic Lyndhurst Mansion. Best-known as the home of railroad magnate Jay Gould, it was built in the early 1800s and is one of the last remaining neo-Gothic structures in the area. Tours of the home are available and the grounds play host to dozens of events throughout the year from artist fairs to dog shows. It is a lush and expansive property, which is open to the public and accessible on foot from the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail.
There are several parks for both recreation and relaxation. Pierson Park is an excellent spot for catching a scenic view of the Hudson and enjoying the tennis courts, basketball, playground, and pavilion. Basher Field boasts two ballfields, while Losee Park is a great spot to watch your children giggle and explore the playground while you lounge in the picnic area. Senior citizens are provided various enrichment activities throughout the year, including book clubs, computer classes, exercise classes, and more. These multiple offerings lend to Tarrytown’s exceptional attention and care it grants its residents.
The five-acre Scenic Hudson Riverwalk winds it way along the banks of the Hudson, with plenty of space to stop and enjoy the views or have a picnic.
Inhabitants gather on Saturdays from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm at Patriots Park for the TaSH Farmer’s Market to buy various seasonal produce, prepared foods, and artisan goods sold by local vendors.
If you’d rather let someone else cook, there are endless possibilities.
On the corner of Broadway and Main Street, Lefteris Gyro makes gyros and a variety of other Greek foods.
Horsefeathers is an old stand-by with a large menu offering something for everyone’s palate.
For fine dining, Bistro 12 serves Mediterranean and Portuguese fare in a comfortable environment.
Little B’s is a gastro pub with dozens of burger combination options in burgers, as well as craft beers.
With so many recreational opportunities and daily necessities close by, Tarrytown is a fantastic destination for folks of all ages.
