Historic Hudson River Towns
Working Together on the Shores of the Hudson

Irvington, NY

The New York Times once wrote, "Irvington is the kind of village, that when you sneeze, 50 people will say 'bless you.'" This caring and welcoming attitude has drawn residents, including many well-known stars of stage, screen, television and radio, and tourists alike.

From its quaint shops to its beautiful homes and spectacular Hudson River views, Irvington is a classic example of the best of the Historic Hudson River Towns. Odell's Tavern, built in the 1690s, was where the newly created State of New York's Committee of Safety met to discuss General George Washington's defeat in the Battle of Long Island. And the Irvington Town Hall Theatre is an exact replica of the Ford Theatre in Washington, D.C., made famous for the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

The Irvington-Hudson River Tiffany Trail
Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) is America's most famous and popular artist in glass—and justly so. His stained-glass windows, lamps, vases and other decorative objects took the art and science of glass making to new heights, allowing for an expanded variety of artistic expression and, in many ways, creating a unique American style. In the mid-1860s, Louis' father, Charles Lewis Tiffany, founder of Tiffany and Company, built an estate in Irvington, New York. The younger Tiffany spent large periods of time here. And in large part, as a result of his affection for the area, Irvington and its surrounding towns contain many examples of his work—and the work of the artisans who were part of his studio system. The Tiffany Trail takes you on a journey to many of these sites, all of which offer public access to their treasures. You'll discover not only the beauty and craftsmanship of the Tiffany style, but also the Tiffany connection to the rich history of the Lower Hudson region.

Old Croton Aqueduct Trailway
Phone: (914) 693-4117
The trailway runs through Irvington, passing the architecturally significant Stiner-Ross House, commonly called the Octagon House, as well as Columbia University Press, Nevis Labs and Mercy College. Owned and managed by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, the trailway offers a scenic walk from northern Westchester County into New York City, or vice versa, following the path of the aqueduct that was once used to bring fresh water from the Croton River to New York City. The trail traverses most of the Historic Hudson River Towns, and while mostly a walking path, it does have some sections suitable for horseback riding. No motorized vehicles are permitted anywhere along the trailway. Many points of access make it easy to walk sections of the trail. Train stations and bus stops are within walking distance, or a quick taxi ride, from almost any place along the path. And although much of the path is easy to find, with trails identified by Taconic Region markers, walkers interested in traversing longer sections of the trailway are encouraged to call or write for a map which details the route, offering specific directions for some of the more difficult areas of the trail. The trail begins on the south side of the Croton Dam, farthest away from the spillway. Along the way walkers will see old ventilator shafts as well as a weir chamber, used to spill off waste water during floods. Various parts of the trail offer spectacular Hudson River views. The Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct have published an award-winning map detailing the route of the trail and attractions along the way available, for $5.75 by calling 914-693-4117. For general trailway information, call 914-693-0529, or go to www.aqueduct.org

The Irvington Woods
Address: 170 Mountain Rpad
Phone: (914) 591-7736
The Irvington Woods is home to the O’Hara Nature Center, the Peter K. Oley Trail Network and the Irvington Reservoir. Parcels of land from several 18th and 19th century estates can be found in the Irvington Woods. They include the homes of Cyrus W. Field, a successful businessman and financier who created the Atlantic Telegraph Company and laid the first telegraph cable across the Atlantic Ocean in 1858; Philip Schuyler, a Revolutionary War general and kinsman of Alexander Hamilton; and Isaac Stern, one of three brothers who founded Stern Brothers Department Store in 1868 in New York City. Throughout the woods are remnants from these estates, including stone terraces, benches, steps and walls. Several of the trails within the system were initially carriage roads for these estates. Visiting the Trails and Reservoir: The Trails and the Reservoir are open daily from dawn until dusk and are popular for walks, biking, hiking and dog-walking. Please respect the beauty of our environment and carry out what you carry in. There is a strict dog leash policy. Dogs must remain on a 6′ leash at all times and owners are expected to clean up after their dogs. There are trash receptacles located at each Trail Head by the kiosk. Please be aware that failure to comply may result in fines up to $250.
There are no Lodging options in Irvington.
