GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The village of Ardsley, which is one square mile and part of the town of Greenburgh, has managed to retain its smalltown appeal over the years despite the slicing in half of its business district by the construction of the Gov. Thomas E. Dewey Thruway in the 1950s, according to a "Living In" story by The New York Times.

Although not on the Hudson River — and not to be confused with Ardsley-on-Hudson, which is a section of Irvington — the village, with hills, winding roads and green spaces, is grouped by real estate agents with the river towns, where houses have been selling briskly lately, The Times reports.

An easy commute to midtown Manhattan is a big draw, agents and buyers say, but traffic can be a problem, according to The New York Times story. To help with that, traffic lanes are being added and widened in the business district, and there are plans to replace the Ashford Avenue Bridge linking the village to Dobbs Ferry.

Additional improvements to roads and area parks are also planned, along with continued efforts to prevent flooding in the business district from the Saw Mill River during storms, the report said.
