Irvington is located around 15 miles across the Hudson River from the City that Never Sleeps. The place was named after Washington Irving, who was a historian, short story writer, and diplomat of the early 19th century. Before it was renamed, the town was known as Camptown. Plenty of notable people were born in this town, including the rapper Napoleon, who was a member of Tupac's group, Outlawz. Another notable person that was raised in Irvington is Vera Farmiga, who is best known for her role in the horror movie The Conjuring.
