    About 10,000 people live there, so it's not so big; not by US standards anyway.

    Beyond the obvious Headless Horseman legends, there's a few ghost myths around the graveyard (where Washington Irving, the writer of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow is buried) and the manor house nearby.

    Apart from that, it really is a sleepy little town. Ironically enough, given it's strong association with myths and legends, one of the presenters of Mythbusters comes from there. Maybe it inspired him? Lol

    Sleepy Hollow is not a large town or villages, But it does have an history of Indian attacks and its fair share of ghost stories........... I also know that you do have an computer whereas you can look up all the information about Sleepy Hollow for yourself............... Another thing you have a lot of people that Sleepy Hollow does not exist except in a story well I am here to tell all of those people that sleepy Hollow does exist................................. I also know that the Book Sleepy Hollow was written by a slave and that story is part of the reason why Sleepy Hollow exist today.................
