Hear from an Irvington local!
One of Irvington’s five star reviews on Niche.com comes from a current resident in 2017! See what they have to say about life in Irvington.
“Irvington is a quirky, close-knit community! We have a local brewery, an awesome artesian pizza place, and soon a Pho restaurant. Irvington is most known for its iconic Halloween festival, and spooky stories of H.H Holmes….
Our homes are distinctly unique, no two are alike! We have some that are grand and majestic, fit to house a family of twelve! Others are dainty and small, perfect for two. Our streets bend and wind, just like the streets from sleepy hollow. Our little town comes alive during the fall months, but don’t let that fool you!
We are quite lively with summer concerts on Audobon circle during the summer, our farmer’s markets every Wednesday at the theatre building, and our large market in Ellenberger park once monthly during the spring and summer.”
