Hastings-on-Hudson was founded by British settlers, who were inspired by the hilly terrain. Hastings-on-Hudson is named after the village Hastings on the southern coast of England, which is a cliff-top community overlooking the English Channel. Hastings-on-Hudson is spread across three hills and a valley. The village is dotted with Tudors, colonials, Victorians and contemporaries, set against a backdrop of trees.
