The village of Sleepy Hollow, New York is located within the bounds of Tarrytown, in Westchester County.
From the late 19th century until 1996, the village was called North Tarrytown. However, it was officially renamed due to its more commonly uttered name of Sleepy Hollow.
Mr. Washington Irving, author of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, lived in neighboring Tarrytown. His ghoulish tale of Ichabod Crane was set in the areas surrounding his residence, and is the basis for Sleepy Hollow’s current name. Mr. Irving and other notable people, such as Andrew Carnegie, Brooke Aster, Elizabeth Arden, and Walter P. Chrysler are all buried in the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. The expansive cemetery is one the most popular tourist attractions in Sleepy Hollow.
Other attractions include Kykuit, the landmark Rockefeller Estate. This six-story stone mansion features incredible artwork, stunning architecture, and meticulously groomed gardens and landscaping. Also not be overlooked is the Philipsburg Manor, a historic mansion highlighting the Dutch beginnings of Sleepy Hollow.
For those commuting to New York, Grand Central Terminal can be reached via the Metro-North Line in about 40 minutes.
Sleepy Hollow is an ideal location for those looking to remain close the boundaries of New York City, while coming home to the cozy and historic atmosphere of an intimate village.
