Tripadvisor, sometimes you're a riot. Yes, Washington Irving's Sunnyside is the top spot in Irvington! Seriously, it's a lovely home in a lovely location alongside the Hudson River (despite the train tracks laid right next to the property after Washington Irving built his home there).
The tour, guided by a wonderful woman in period costume, really made the visit special. Our guide explained how the people lived, what role each room and piece of equipment (early stoves, etc.) played and how the people (especially Washington Irving himself) lived. It was a wonderful look back at a more bucolic way of life. Well worth the visit!
