So far, my experience living in Irvington has been great. I moved here three year ago, when I came from Brazil to study English. It was love at first sight!
Irvington is a beautiful and peaceful village, nearby Hudson river. The town is pretty the whole year; however, my favorite period is April to September, when I can bike to the parks by the river, and watch the sunset. Another thing I love about Irvington, is that it close enough to New York City, so I enjoy the nightlife.
If I had to point out a minus of this Village, it would be the prohibition of dogs in almost all the parks. For me it seems nonsense that dogs are not welcome at such family friend places. In fact, having pets on the parks would be even helpful, since they could keep the geese alway. Those birds make the parks pretty dirty.

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.
It is a quiet and safe and beautiful community full of life’s it has a farmers market and the pretty sunsets on the Hudson River. The schools are very good too. There is also the aqueduct and the reservoir for nice walks. There are also really great places to eat close to the water and in nearby towns. Only forty five minutes from New York City.
