|Sleepy Hollow Cemetery|
It's amazing that a lot of New Yorkers don't know that Sleepy Hollow is a real place and, yes, it's an hour away from Grand Central station.
Sleepy Hollow is most known for Washington Irving's story about the headless horseman, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Washington Irving is, of course, buried in the cemetery:
The residents love the Legend's headless horseman, and he appears everywhere. Even on the police cars, like the officers are still protecting the residents from the headless horseman.
|The local brew. He's holding a beer!|

I also recommend going on the Kykuit mansion tour. Kykuit was one of the Rockefeller's mansions, and has breathtaking views of the Hudson Valley. And of course Gilded Age elegance
