A Great Location in Westchester’s Renowned River Town
Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown
Sleepy Hollow is one of the historic river towns along the Hudson in Westchester, along with Tarrytown, Irvington, Dobbs Ferry and Hastings-on-Hudson. The name is derived from a work published in 1655 by an original Dutch settler named Adriaen Van der Donck, who referred to the Pocantico River as "Slapershaven", or Sleeper’s Haven. Sleepy Hollow is the Anglicized version of this name.
Made famous by the stories of Washington Irving, the Sleepy Hollow/Tarrytown area is packed with history and wonderful places to visit. Among the local attractions are Lyndhurst, where concerts on the lawn are held on summer evenings; Sunnyside, Washington Irving’s home; and Kykuit, the Rockefeller estate in nearby Pocantico Hills. Also, just up the road from Ichabod’s Landing, is Phillipsburg Manor, a great place to experience what life was like in pre-Revolutionary America.
Both Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown are quaint villages whose main streets are walking distance from Ichabod’s Landing. Fine and casual dining are just steps away from your home, and shopping is also very convenient. There are also many recreational facilities nearby including ball fields, picnic areas, tennis courts and playgrounds. For bikers, there are many popular routes in the area, as well as the North County Trail, which is a paved trail for bikers and runners only.
Ichabod’s Landing is in the middle of everything Westchester has to offer, yet secluded along the Hudson River. It is truly a one-of-a-kind location.
