Welcome to Tarrytown, a village with rich and varied historical and cultural roots and a splendid setting overlooking the three-mile width of the Hudson River. The Dutch called this point, the river's widest, the Tappan Zee -- Tappan probably for a group of Indians and Zee meaning "sea" in Dutch.
Situated on the eastern shore of the Hudson River, across from Rockland County, it is a village of rolling hills, twenty-five miles north of New York City.
The area has become an increasingly popular tourist destination because of Sunnyside, Washington Irving's home; Kykuit, the Rockefeller family home, and Philipsburg Manor Upper Mills in North Tarrytown.
The Antiques shops abound, mixed with delis, clothing stores and restaurants featuring Italian, Greek, Mexican and Portuguese specialties, art & music, all of which attracts visitors from other areas.
Clearest sign of diversity is Tarrytown's housing stock, from the tiny rowhouses in the inner village to the elegant free-standing brownstones on North Washington Street to the rambling Victorians in Wilson Park. About 40 percent of the 4,311 housing units in Tarrytown are one-families, including several Hudson River Victorians with fine river views. The waterfront development gave Tarrytown a new look, by adding condos & townhouses directly overlooking Hudson River, Tappan Zee bridge. Direct train connects to NYC in 37 -55 minutes, depending on the time and the day of the week.
