Hastings-on-Hudson is the Southern most of the river towns, located just a 30-minute drive away from New York City. Unsurprisingly, the village lies along the Hudson River, where you can get a stunning view of the Palisades, the Manhattan skyline, and the Tappan Zee and George Washington Bridge.
Nowadays, the village has its quaint downtown with shops and restaurants. Like other river towns, the streets are pretty hilly, and it may be harder to find a house on a level lot. Most of the homes are classic Victorians, tudors, and colonials. Historically, there have been distinguished artists, writers, and scholars who lived in Hastings. The village maintains an artsy vibe, and has several art galleries.
The MacEachron Waterfront Park and Kinnally Cove offers picnic and playground facilities, and a launch for kayaking.
Over 100 years ago, the Hastings-on-Hudson riverfront was actually an industrial center. The factories have been shut down for more than 50 years, but unfortunately the environmental cleanup work is still going on.
