Accessibility Project at the Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow

Construction of the Accessibility Project at the Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow is nearly completed in time for summer worship services on Sundays beginning July 2 through September 3 at 10 am.  “After more than 80 years, we are finally able to welcome all to worship and visit the church,” says the Reverend Jeff Gargano. The old steep, uneven steps made access to the church very difficult for some. The historic church attracts over 20,000 visitors a year especially around the month of October, and is also a popular wedding destination.

Dear Graduates

I am pleased to extend my congratulations to the Sleepy Hollow High School Class of 2017 on their commencement.

When our graduating seniors cross the stage to receive their diplomas on June 22, they will leave Sleepy Hollow supported by some of the best teachers and administrators in Westchester County and New York State. With that support and the guidance of their parents, our students took home awards and honors in the sciences, mathematics, arts, and athletics. They also performed countless acts of kindness, embraced their diversity, and lent their passions to causes larger than themselves.

“This Could Be…The Start of Something Big”

The inner Village of Sleepy Hollow has had ongoing problems with illegal apartments, overcrowding to the point of some rooms being rented by the day and in blocks of hours –  then rented again, garbage spewing out of backyards, sewage leaking and general deplorable living conditions in buildings, several of which are on Cortlandt Street. Cortlandt Street has a rich history, and during the early 1900s received immigrants from Ireland, Poland, Italy and other European countries, who made their homes there and contributed with their cultural identities to making a vital inner Village.
