Over the past decade or so, Irvington has attempted (fairly unsuccessfully) to sell itself as a tourist attraction. Irvington certainly has its charm and history, but for the most part it is comparable to any of its neighboring New York suburbs. That being said, like all locations, Irvington has history. Those who are intent on exploring the colonial history of this affluent village should be able to find enough attractions to keep them occupied for a few afternoons.


Town Hall Theater is in the same building as Irvington Village Hall.
Scenic Hudson Park has views of the Manhattan skyline and the cliffs of the Palisades.





At present there is no overnight lodging in the village of Irvington itself. Find accommodations in adjacent villages and towns.
