"CLOSE by Sunnyside is one of those marvellous villages with which America abounds: it has sprung up like a mushroom, and bears the name of Irvington, in compliment to the late master of Sunnyside. . . . One of the most picturesque of the station-houses upon the Hudson River Railway is there, and a ferry connects with the village of Piermont. Morning and evening, when the trains depart for and arrive from New York, many handsome vehicles may be seen there. This all seems like the work of magic. Over this beautiful slope, where so few years ago the voyager upon the Hudson saw only woodlands and cultivated fields, is now a populous town." - Benson J. Lossing, The Hudson From the Wilderness to the Sea (Published 1866)
