Mayor Drew Fixell and the Village of Tarrytown should be congratulated for being named one of the prettiest towns in the United States by Forbes. Tarrytown is one of six villages located within the town of Greenburgh.
I think that one of the reasons why Tarrytown achieved this distinction is because of good planning decisions over the years. The Tarrytown Village Board, Zoning Board, Planning Board and Conservation Advisory Board have insisted (over the years) on great planning and have made excellent land use decisions. These decisions have helped Tarrytown maintain its charm and unique qualities. Tarrytown is known for its history. Washington Irving, the Underground mansion, spectacular mansions, Lyndhurst and much more. The Hudson River views are spectacular, the parks are great. And --the restaurants are outstanding! Great concerts and shows are performed at the Tarrytown Music Hall, one of the most charming theaters around.
I am sure that this honor and recognition will help our area attract more tourists and will be good news to the small businesses in our community.
Congratulations--again--to a great village on this impressive honor. Glad they are part of our town!
