Located twenty one miles north of New York City, Ardsley is a small village, slightly over a square mile, with a world-class school system.

Ashford Avenue, the main street in Ardsley, was originally an Indian trail leading from the Hudson River to Long Island Sound. The village, once known as Ashford, became a destination for the wealthy at the turn of the century. After World War II, a thriving suburb with lovely neighborhoods developed.

Ardsley has excellent athletic programs and ball fields for both children and adults. Its convenience, family focus, and excellence in education have made it a highly desirable community.
