Setting & Lifestyle

In addition, Irvington is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates". Urban sophisticates are people who are both educated and wealthy, and thus tend to be older, richer, and more established than young professionals. "Urban sophisticates" is not just about being educated and well-off financially: it is a point of view and state of mind, one that you might call 'urbaneness'.

Is Irvington perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

In Irvington, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 37.04 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.
