Ardsley is one of the river towns in Southern Westchester, although it does not lie along the Hudson River at all. Compared to the other river towns: Hastings, Dobbs Ferry, and Irvington, Ardsley does not have the quaint downtown or a Metro North train station. There is still a shopping district in Ardsley, but the area is quite small and looks more like a collection of strip malls.
What attracts people to Ardsley is its excellent school system, its central location to Manhattan and nearby villages, and its extensive parks and recreation offerings. There is a community center on Center Street that hosts a range of activities for youth and seniors.
There are two large village parks: the Pascone Park and the McDowell Park. They offer a skate park, lighted tennis courts, sports fields, playgrounds, picnic areas. There are annual events that bring together the community, including a Halloween parade, a holiday tree lighting, an annual park day, tennis tournament, 5-K run, etc.
Ardsley does not have its own Metro North station. The closest stations will be the Ardsley-on-Hudson (which is not in the village of Ardsley) and the Dobbs Ferry station on the Hudson Line, or Hartsdale station on the Harlem Line. The ride from any of those stations to Grand Central Station is less than 40 minutes during peak time.
Driving from Ardsley to midtown is quite convenient, since Ardsley is right at Saw Mill River Parkway and I-87. The distance to midtown is 22 miles, and the distance to White Plains is 8 miles.
