The real Sleepy Hollow experience is right here in the Lower Hudson Valley. But Fox has recreated the historic town in the middle of Manhattan to promote the network’s new series “Sleepy Hollow,” a modern take on Washington Irving’s classic tale set in the village once known as North Tarrytown.
On display in Madison Square Park at 23rd Street and Madison Avenue, the Sleepy Hollow Fan Experience features the iconic “Welcome to Sleepy Hollow” sign, an old bridge, period costumes, props from the show, and the series’ frightening 7-foot-tall Headless Horseman. The exhibit is open to the public daily (11 a.m. to 7 p.m.) through Saturday, Sept. 12. Orlando Jones, who plays a police captain in the Sleepy Hollow series, will greet fans from 11 a.m. -11:45 a.m. on Friday.
As excitement builds for the series premiere on Monday at 9 p.m., how do Sleepy Hollow residents and business owners really feel about the new show that shares the town’s name? Find out at LoHud.com.
