Welcome to Tarrytown

Ensconced by the Hudson River to the west and just 25 miles north of Manhattan in New York City, Tarrytown is a small village nestled within the city of Greenburgh in Westchester County. Just north is the famed village of Sleepy Hollow, and to the south lies Irvington. The railway station is serviced by the Metro-North Commuter Service, which runs to Grand Central Terminal and makes New York City accessible to all.

Long before the non-native settlers of Tarrytown consisted of Dutch farmers, trappers, and fishermen, the Weckquaesgeeks Indians were the first to live on the land. The first immigrants were Dutch, and the town received its name from a derivative of a word for wheat since the area’s soil was perfect for the crop. The village is also famous for being alluded to by Washington Irving in his literary masterpiece Sleepy Hollow and for serving as the home of John D. Rockefeller’s magnificent residency, Kykuit.

The restaurant has no menu—instead, guests are treated to the seasonal best of the house. 

Things to Do

In a town so steeped in history, it’s easy to find beautiful historic sites, manors, and grounds to explore. For example, at Lyndhurst Mansion—a majestic 67-acre estate set along the mighty Hudson River’s shores—you can walk the expansive grounds or take guided tours of the property that will pull you back into history and another time.

Favor more modern views? Drive along the resplendent Mario M. Cuomo Bridge to marvel at its architectural splendor as the longest bridge in the state. At night, the bridge’s features are lit to commemorate important events and illuminate the area.

Tarrytown is uniquely suited to provide Halloween holiday fun—families can head to Horseman’s Hollow, the area’s premier haunted house attraction that pays homage to the Sleepy Hollow folklore. For festivities without the fright, families can enjoy The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze hosted at the Van Cortlandt Manor. Playing off the impressive features of its 18th-century landscape, this fall extravaganza includes over 7,000 hand-carved, illuminated jack o’ lanterns as well as a carousel and synchronized light shows.
