Hastings-on-Hudson & Greenburgh
Hastings on Hudson, Irvington, Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry, Elmsford and Hartsdale are some of the many villages comprising the lower Hudson Valley, and are all part of the town of Greenburgh. They are all rich in colonial heritage and some are situated along the Hudson River, providing unsurpassed vistas. Historically interesting sites and buildings are spread throughout the area.
Hastings-on-Hudson, situated 19 miles from New York City, was incorporated in 1879. The village offers an abundance of arts and recreational opportunities. The oldest golf course in the United States, St. Andrew's, is a spectacular private facility. There is public golf as well, and two yacht clubs along the Hudson River.
The downtown business district, awarded “Best Main Street” in 2008 by Westchester magazine, is comprised of a variety of mom-and-pop shops, casual and refined eateries, and well-established businesses. New waterfront parks and restaurants add to the village’s allure and bring people from all over NYC and Westchester to share in the offerings of this special place. There is a seasonal farmers' market and the popular "Hastings Flea", a craft & food fair held monthly near the train station in the warmer months.
Housing in Hastings includes many older homes, often charmingly restored and with river views, as well as co-ops, condos, townhouses, and rentals. Considering the promimity to Manhattan, the innate charm of the town, and the amenities offered in the town, Hastings offers clear value to its residents.
