Getting to Sleepy Hollow to attend Blaze

We're travelling from Dublin, Ireland to New York. We've purchased tickets for Blaze at 6.30pm. We'll have 3 young children with us. I've done some research and I know that we take the train from Grand Central to Philpse Manor. Can anyone tell me the distance between the train station, Philpse Manor, and Van Cortlandt Manor? I imagine it is a very busy place and cabs may not be available so we will probably have to walk, so I'm trying to establish a time scale. Also we are hoping to travel up earlier in the day and have dinner there before attending the event, so if anybody has any recommendations for other sights in the area and places for lunch/dinner we would greatly appreciate it. Thanks a million

For the Blaze at Van Cortlandt Manor they recommend the Croton Harmon train station www.hudsonvalley.org/events/blaze/directions

if you want to go up earlier and see things in other areas you can find cab/transport info by clicking on the town names on the MN train map: http://web.mta.info/mnr/html/mnrmap.htm

For other things nearby browse http://www.hudsonvalley.org/ and http://travelhudsonvalley.com/

The house and mill at hudsonvalley.org/historic-sites/philipsburg-… might be of interest if you want to see a colonial site.

www.stonebarnscenter.org/visit/index.html is fairly close by. The restaurant is pricey but there's a café. https:/…cafe-grain-bar

You might want to get the phone number of the taxi service so you can call for rides between places. Uber has been recently legalized in NY State so that maybe available too.
