Irvington NY Real Estate and Homes for Sale
Woodlands, rolling hills, and well-preserved 19th century buildings greet you once you set foot within the charming village of Irvington. One of the so-called “River Towns”, the village of Irvington is located in the town of Greenburgh, just a short drive away from White Plains and New York City. What was once a home of Native Americans became a community of Dutch, and later, English settlers.
The village wasn’t always known as Irvington; during the 1850s, John Jay laid out the lots in the area and named the village after Justice Dearman. It was only renamed to Irvington in 1854 by popular demand to honor Washington Irvington, author of “Rip Van Winkle” and “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”
