A few weeks ago, a couple friends of mine and I took a train ride to Sleepy Hollow, New York to see the fall colors (and to visit the cemetery that holds Washington Irving), and I was not disappointed. Though I’ve never read The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, but it was interesting to walk around and explore the town anyway.
Sleepy Hollow has really embraced its reputation, and the Headless Horseman is depicted all over town, even on the police cars.
But the most interesting part of my visit was the cemetery. It’s there that Washington Irving was buried.
The rest of the cemetery was beautiful, especially with all the fall colors throughout.
We tried to get a picture of the famous bridge that the Headless Horseman rode over, but as it wasn’t that photogenic, I got a picture of this scenic bridge instead. (But we can just pretend!)
The east coast is known for its beautiful fall colors, and it was nice to get out of the city and see them. Especially because it was a bookish trip!
Luckily for me, I live in NYC where there are plenty of bookish locations to visit!
