Ardsley, a Rivertown along the Hudson Valley, is nestled between Scarsdale and Dobbs Ferry, and sits east of Dobbs Ferry and just north of Hastings. Ardsley proper is one square mile and it best known for its village atmosphere, friendly community and “commutability”. Just 16 miles to Manhattan, Ardsley has easy access to the Saw Mill River Parkway, Interstate 87 and 9A.
Ardsley has an eclectic mix of restaurants from Guiseppe’s for authentic Italian, and Pumpernickel Restaurant for the comfort of pub food to sushi and sashimi at East Japan. Deciccio Family Market, which sells homemade breads, restaurant quality meats and scrumptious pastries and sweets, is a must for the cook in the family.
For the outdoor enthusiast and historian, there is no better way to spend an afternoon than exploring The Old Croton Aqueduct, a 26 mile natural trail that runs through Ardsley. This narrow park, which averages 60 feet in width, is great for strolling, hiking and biking. What a great way to combine the outdoors with history and learn about the longest, thinnest National Park in New York State.
Whether you’re meeting friend for a quick cup of coffee at Starbucks or taking your kids to one of the village’s gorgeous parks, Ardsley is a town that has old roots, friendly merchants and residents, and an appreciation for convenience.
