Rivertown Leisure in Hastings on Hudson, NY

Rivertown Leisure in Hastings on Hudson, NY


I love living in Hastings on Hudson so much! We moved here almost six years ago, two kids and a dog later we are about to celebrate our one year anniversary of opening our store here in town. In the past six years Hastings has opened up some wonderful new restaurants and shops. Many of our downtown businesses are run by local Rivertown residents and moms! I am so proud to be apart of that gang. 


Hastings on Hudson is an adorable sleepy town twelve miles North of Manhattan on the Hudson River, steps from the Metro North train, with great restaurants and home goods stores. 


Here is where I love to go around Hastings on Hudson, NY, a Rivertown of Westchester.





the hōm market




You will find me here (and my Captain, Sue) Tuesday- Saturday 12-4pm and some Sundays. We sell artisan made home goods, vintage finds from around the world and speciality food pantry items. Come in and say hi––were located at 14 Spring Street.  



Little House NY




Little House carries a wonderful curated selection of woman's clothing, children's clothings, toys and home goods. I love her clothes and the brands she carries (a piece apart, Citizens of Humanity, Hawkins NY) Danielle has a great eye and is open Tuesday- Saturday! Located at 578 Warburton Ave. 







The observatory shop is a yarn store that hosts classes, sells beautiful apparel, accessories and home goods. Amanda is the best and you will love chit chatting with her, Jackie or Joyce, I always do. Amanda is the one that taught me how to knit! Located at 5 Main Street.

Hudson Line




Hudson Line makes FANTASTIC custom wood furniture and has a great selection of home goods at the front of his shop. The back is where Bill custom makes furniture. Bill and his wife Lorna sell handmade wooden bowls, colorful glassware and candles to name a few. He made me my dining room table (that I am obsessed with!) and is incredibly talented. Located at 541 Warburton Ave. 



Lemon Terrace Florals




As a former florist I have very high standards when it comes to floral design and Lemon Terrace fits the bill. They are known for their love of nature and that comes out in their floral designs which are more wild and unstructured. Nicole sources as locally as possible based on the seasons and has curated a great selection of apothecary goods and ceramics. Located at 3 Spring Street. 




Mossy Fern




I love Mossy Ferns and get my indoor plants from Harry! He has a great selection of gardening tools, planters and indoor and outdoor plants including air plants and terrariums.  Located at 579 Warburton Ave #4.

Suburban Renewal is a vintage furniture and home goods shop that has been in Hastings for over 20 years. There are wonderful finds there and great prices and everyone adores Fonda who owns the shop. Located at 1 Main Street.










Boro6 is my favorite restaurant in town and I order lunch from there weekly! It's truly a stunning space with a 40 foot marble horseshoe bar, cozy banquets, they serve over 40 varieties of wine, amazing cocktails, craft beers, and a mediterranean menu. They make in house homemade pastas, delicious salads, roasted fishes and veggies, braised meats and is overseen by executive chef Paul Dibari. Its owned by Paul Molakides former Eleven Madison Park Manager and his wife Jennifer Aaronson former Martha Stewart Living editor. Eating at Boro 6 is a must! Located 549 Warburton Ave. 



Bread and Brine 




Bread and Brine wins the award for best seafood in town by far. Jeremy who is from Maine kills it in the seafood department with fresh lobster, great oyster selections, and seriously yummy fish and chips. If you don't eat seafood fear not there are many items on the menu and all are delicious. Pre covid they hosted trivia nights which were legendary and often throws clam bakes and lobster boils. We are so lucky to have them in our town. Located at 19 Main Street.




St. George Bistro 




If you are a lover of good cocktails and french food you will love St. George Bistro! Saint George is a New-French Bistro offering reworked classics like steak frites, beef tartar, and coq au vin. They serve locally caught seafood, fine meats, seasonal veggies, and French wine. Owned and operated by Jason Steinberg and executive chef is Chris Vergara, Jason owns two other restaurants, Harpers, located in the next town over Dobbs Ferry and Meritage in Scarsdale. Located at 155 South Side steps from the train with views of the Palisades and the Hudson River. 




The Good Witch




My favorite place to grab a coffee in town is at The Good Witch located in the Hastings train station off the Metro North track. Delicious coffees, teas, snacks, and on the weekends breakfast sandwiches and sandwiches. Joanna often throws events with live music, swing dancing nights, and hosts parties.
