Irving Park was named after Washington Irving, author of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Washington Irving.

The lovely Irving Park neighborhood was named for the famous author Washington Irving.

It was named after the author Washington Irving.

The original name chosen was "Irvington" after the author Washington Irving, but it was discovered that another town in Illinois had already used the same name, so the name of Irving Park was adopted.
