Athens NY Real Estate includes Athens Station, Hollister Lake, Lime Street, Middle Ground Flats, Sleepy Hollow Lake, West Athens and the Orchards. Athens NY Real Estate is greatly affected by Sleepy Hollow Lake Development which is north of the village of Athens and brings many second home residents and retirees to the historic Town. The downtown village area is a developing river front town with new restaurants and rehabilitation of historic buildings. According to the U. S. Census for 2010, the town has a total area of 28.8square miles and the population was 4,089.  The median income for a household in the town was $39,719.   The per capita income for the town was $20,910.

The Town of Athens is located at the eastern end of Greene County, and was established on February 25th, 1815. Portions of the Towns of Catskill and Coxsackie were used to form the Town of Athens. The town has since developed a rich heritage with diverse architecture spanning over three centuries.

Its use as a ferry terminus was diminished after the Rip Van Winkle bridge was built in 1935; the ferry was closed in 1947.   Athens’ layout and architecture have remained essentially the same since its heyday in the late 19th century.   It has more than 300 buildings on national and state historic registers and has the feel of a living museum of American architecture, with examples of many of the predominant styles of the 18th and 19th centuries, including Federal, Greek Revival, Italianate, Stick, Second Empire, Folk Victorian and Queen Anne.
