Sleepy Hollow is a village in Mount Pleasant, New York in Westchester County, New York, United States. It is located on the eastern bank of the Hudson River, about north of midtown Manhattan in New York City, and is served by the Philipse Manor stop on the Metro-North Hudson Line.

Originally incorporated as North Tarrytown in the late 19th century, in 1996 the village officially adopted the traditional name for the area, known to many via the Washington Irving story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". To the south of Sleepy Hollow is the village of Tarrytown, and to the north and east are unincorporated parts of Mount Pleasant. The population of the village at the 2010 census was 9,870.

The village is home to the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, where Washington Irving is buried, along with Andrew Carnegie, Walter P. Chrysler, Brooke Astor, Elizabeth Arden, Thomas J. Watson of IBM, Samuel Gompers, and many others. Philipsburg Manor House and the Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow are located in the village as well.
