The Rivertowns, New York Real Estate and Community Info.

Located along the Hudson River, the River towns are know for their easy access to Manhattan on the Hudson line and the quaint picturesque towns with dramatic views of the Hudson River. Tarrytown is the largest of the River towns and is a destination for many day trippers who come for the antique shopping along Main Street as well as the many dining options. South of Tarrytown, you'll find Irvington. In recent years, the waterfront has been transformed by the many restaurants and shops that have opened up in what was once factory buildings. As you travel South, you'll find the town of Dobbs Ferry. Similar in character to Irvington, Dobbs Ferry has a pretty Main Street that is characterized by small boutiques and family run restaurants. The next town South is Hastings on Hudson. The town is known for it's artistic flair. For recreation and cultural pursuits, villagers have a number of options. Hastings was home to the Hudson River School artist Jasper Cropsey in the late 1800's, and today the Newington Cropsey Foundation operates a gallery in Hastings, with the artist's home and studio open to visitors.

Shopping and Dining

If you don't want to shop in the big chain stores, the River towns shops are your best options. Because large chain stores are not allowed to set up shop in the most of the River town Main Streets, you'll find more creative options available in these towns. 

Parks and Recreation

Dobbs Ferry and Irvington have beautiful riverfront parks. Many other parks and recreation information can be found on the Town of Greenburgh website.


Each of the towns that comprise the Rivertowns have one elementary school, one middle school and one high school.
