The setting of any story is relevant to how we understand the story. In the case of this story, Sleepy Hollow is just that, a sleepy kind of town where mysterious things can happen. A headless horseman, Katrina Van Tassel, a school teacher who is rather strange - these all fit with the idea of a slow, sleepy kind of place.
