I love that Irvington is really close to the city center without apartments costing an absolute fortune. It's a very dog-friendly neighborhood and pedestrian-friendly as well! The neighborhood itself is really quite gorgeous and is in close proximity to several bars and restaurants. A major downside is that there are tons of homeless people digging through trash bins and make a mess. They also yell and tell me that they'll steal my dog which is a little unnerving.

Irvington is a great neighborhood. There is so much close by including restaurants, grocery stores, public transit, and parks. I think they could do more to include more affordable housing in the area.
Irvington is a great neighborhood, with great public schools, parks, and restaurants. There are a lot of beautiful old trees that line the streets and not too much traffic.
