Hartsdale & Greenburgh
Hartsdale is one of the many villages comprising the lower Hudson Valley, and part of the town of Greenburgh. Along with the handful of other villages in Greenburgh, all are rich in colonial heritage and some are situated along the Hudson River, providing unsurpassed vistas. Historically interesting sites and buildings are spread throughout the area.
Hartsdale is a hamlet of just over 3 square miles, with a population of almost 10,000. It is the home of two well-known “firsts”: the home of the first Carvel ice cream store that stood from 1934 until 2008, and America’s first pet cemetery where many famous canines have been laid to rest.
Hartsdale has two distinct shopping districts, the cozy downtown area near the train station, and the expansive strip of Central Park Avenue. Housing includes numerous cooperative and condominium complexes, and single-family homes in a variety of neighborhoods with names like Poet’s Corners, Orchard Hill, and Windsor Park. The area also boasts two working farms, several large parks, and the Hart’s Brook Nature Preserve.
All of the villages within the town of Greenburgh benefit from its vast wealth of community amenities, including parks, swimming pools, tennis courts, community centers, libraries and nature preserves. Shopping is abundant, and several commuter stations of Metro North whisk passengers to midtown in 40 minutes or less.
