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.
I have lived in the Irvington neighborhood for a few years now and can say that it is centrally located, relatively quiet and very bike friendly with grocery stores and parks within walking distance.
