Dobbs Ferry

Known as “Dobbs” among locals, this town got its name from a ferry service that had its base here during the second half of the 19th century. With historical traces that date back to the Revolutionary War, Dobbs Ferry is today a segment of the town of Greenburgh and, with a blossoming downtown area, it is home to a public and a private school district as well as Mercy College. 

The housing options in Dobbs Ferry consist mostly of single-family houses with the exception of a surge in condos and co-ops along Main Street and the downtown area, which also offers a buzzing dining scene.

Situated right on the Hudson, Dobbs Ferry perfectly enraptures the mighty river’s scenic beauty by offering several public parks including Gould Park (which features a community pool), Memorial Park, and Waterfront Park.
