Sleepy Hollow is a beautiful town with a diverse demographic and a great school system. The diversity and culture at Sleepy Hollow has enriched my experience living there and is something I truly love about it. The main street of town has excellent restaurants and various types of cuisine, from Mexican to Korean to Greek. The town is very clean, safe and in a beautiful location right on the Hudson River. Families and students make up most of the population. It is definitely a bit expensive to live in due to the location, but the overall community there is excellent and very welcoming.

I like how Sleepy Hollow is a very calm diverse town. There isn't crime or any violence committed in town. The policemen are very protective and always keep their eyes on everything to make sure everyone is safe. It's a safe place to be in because you won't have to fear about being robbed or hurt by anyone. The public schools are excellent, the high school especially gives a lot of help to it's students and community. The only bad thing about Sleepy Hollow is that the rent or housing is very expensive and every year it gets more expensive making it hard for Sleepy Hollow residents to keep up forcing them to leave. The town has a beautiful view of the new bridge and by the river it has a nice park where you can go for walks or even spend time with families.
This is a very friendly town. Plenty of places to walk around and check out. Great for all ages, especially during the holidays!
