"A Friendly Village"

Most people would agree that Dobbs Ferry is a pleasant and pretty village. The community is very warm and welcoming; I can't imagine newcomers having trouble meeting new people. There are several events organized by the recreation department that are great to attend when you're new to the area.

If you're into fitness you might want to look elsewhere. There aren't any gyms in the area so you have to either install one in your home or do your cardio the old fashioned way: outside.

The schools in Dobbs Ferry are good, on par with the surrounding area. I think some areas of Dobbs Ferry use the Ardsley school system which is known to be slightly better.

The Hudson River offers some really beautiful views from the shoreline that the village will be revitalizing over the next few years. I think aesthetically they're just planning on giving the walkways and benches a face lift but I know a portion of the money will go toward protecting the shoreline from erosion.

There are some great restaurants in town too with a decent variety. Half Moon on the Hudson is a local favorite. It has fresh menu options but the main appeal is it's located right on the Hudson River. Very tasty and romantic.
  • Nice views
