The 411: With its earliest roots as an encampment during the Revolutionary War, Dobbs Ferry is a modern-day village within the town of Greenburgh. The village is named after a historical ferry service that transported residents across the Hudson River during the latter half of the 19th century. The village offers mostly single-family housing, except for a smattering of condos and co-ops along its Main Street/downtown area, which has recently blossomed into a lively dining scene. “Dobbs,” as it is known by the locals, offers a variety of educational opportunities beyond public schooling, including parochial and private boarding schools such as Our Lady of Victory, the Masters School, and the Alcott Montessori School. Dobbs Ferry also houses Mercy College, making it a prime location for commuting college students. Taking full advantage of its scenic character, the village offers Gould Park with a community pool, Memorial park, and Waterfront Park with a marina along the Hudson.
