Rivertowns in Westchester County, New York

Real Estate Broker/Owner

Seems to me that in order for a town to be considered a Rivertown they must have frontage on the Hudson River.  Ardsley doesn't have any Hudson River waterfront yet a lot of people consider it a Rivertown.  I don't.  Ardsley, New York is a 1.3 mile Village.  Ardsley has Route 9A running through the center.  Proximity to the city, centrally located and close to all highways and great schools make Ardsley a popular place to settle.  However it is not a Rivertown.  In Westchester County the following communities have Hudson River frontage and would be considered "Rivertowns":

Yonkers, Hastings-on-Hudson, Dobbs Ferry, Irvington, Tarrytown, Mt. Pleasant (Sleepy Hollow), Ossining, Briarcliff Manor, Croton-on-Hudson, Cortlandt Manor and Peekskill.

"Historic Hudson River Towns is a consortium of communities located on the East and West banks of New York’s majestic Hudson River, from Yonkers to Albany."

I'd throw in Buchanan since it is a village. Good point about Ardsley, although there is a tiny zip code, Ardsley on Hudson, between Irvington and Dobbs Ferry.

Ardsley on Hudson is a train station that doesn't even serve Ardsley, New York.  The surrounding homes are Irvington and Dobbs Ferry and the train station serves Irvington and Dobbs Ferry.
