Irvington Reviews

3 reviews
Irvington is a relatively small town, but it is rich with self-owned restaurants and businesses. We do not allow chain restaurants because then we can sponsor self businesses. It is a tight-knit community. We have a common road where most of the life sparks, called Main Street. Irvington has an easy access to New York City: only a MTR train is needed, which is around thirty to fourty-five minutes. Most neighborhoods are relatively quiet, and there are many chances to get close to people in the town since it is so small.Everybody is thoughtful and kind and willing to help. There is also Matthiessen Park, which is an extremely nice place to relax.

Police is everywhere, and very friendly. its just very expensive here. But the town offers a lot of community events. Everyone seems very involved, and I love the Santa that waves at us during Christmas time.
The local businesses are very nice and give a much nicer feeling to the town than big commercial stores would. In my town, there is not much shopping to do at all, maybe one or two very small stores and mostly restaurants. In the areas outside the town, there is much more to do and see! Shopping in Irvington is pretty hopeless, but in neighboring towns it's much better, I do all my shopping there!
