Tarrytown, More Than Just a Westchester Country Village


Tarrytown New York is a village in Westchester County and like most villages, it is made up of many different neighborhoods, from The Crest to Wilson Park.  Less than two hours from New York City, locals love the fact that Tarrytown is a strollable village, where the CVS and The Pastry Chef are an easy walk from restaurants, the Music Hall Theater and the local YMCA. It feels to me like small town America but with some hidden gems and culture thrown in from New York City’s influence, obviously due to the wealth of people who commute from Tarrytown into Manhattan on a daily basis.

Below, Mint on Main Street gives you an idea of charm of the place and demonstrates too, that Tarrytown has a bit of a food culture to it as well.

A few restaurant suggestions in town include Blue Hill on Bedford Road in Pocantico Hills, Village Dog on Main Street for handcrafted hot dogs, Mint, as mentioned above, also has a restaurant and Chiboust for French food. There’s a very cool farm outside town called Stone Barns Center, which is a four season agricultural center and farm.  The Tapp is a great gastro pub in town where you can get both full fare garb and drinks and locals talk about The Pastry Chef on North Broadway.

It’s a charming village with quaint eateries, pubs, bars, cafes and given that its in a rural setting, there are also some lovely hikes nearby. One other thing to note is that it is close to Sleepy Hollow New York, which is known for the infamous Sleepy Hollow tales, which means the area comes alive at Halloween and frankly through the whole month of October.

Worth a drive through if you’re taking in New York and/or greater Westchester towns.
