Dobbs Ferry, New York

The village of Dobbs Ferry was named for a ferry service that ran along the Hudson River.  Dobbs Ferry played a critical role in the American Revolutionary War when in August of 1781, with soldiers encamped in Dobbs Ferry, George Washington decided to change his original strategy of probing weaknesses in British defenses from the village and moved the troops along Ashford Avenue and Broadway to Virginia.

The Village was incorporated in 1873 and originally known as “Greenburgh.”  The name was changed to Dobbs Ferry in 1882.  The village is 3.2 square miles and has an approximate population of 10,600 as of the 2000 Census.  Dobbs Ferry is home to the campus of Mercy College and the Masters School.  Famous residents include TV personality Meredith Viera, actress Jane Alexander and former major league baseball player Alvin Dark.
