The 411: Though it has no access to the Hudson, the ultra-small village—a part of the town of Greenburgh—is still considered one of the Rivertowns and maintains a quieter, more low-key version of the artsy Rivertown vibe. The village is thoroughly residential, with residents drawn to the availability of ranches, Capes, and Colonials in a high-achieving, close-knit school district (students graduate together from one elementary school to one middle school to one high school). What little town life there is centers around the few strip malls located on the main thoroughfare, route 9A (Saw Mill River Road), where there is a handful of independent shops and restaurants (including quite a few sushi destinations!) nestled between chain stores and dry cleaners. And, though it's small (a little over four thousand people in one square mile), the town has multiple parks for school children to run around in, including Macy Park, a county-run park, and Ashford Park, which boasts lighted tennis courts, a gazebo, and a seasonal snack bar.
