Hartsdale is a wonderful family friendly town with an excellent commute time to the city! Beautiful parks (Webb Park and playground, Hartsbrook Park, Ridge Road Park) and the Greenburgh Nature Center!

We have convenience at our fingertips with Trader Joe's, excellent restaurants, Pilates, several gyms, kids classes, easy access to the Sprain, Bronx River and 287 and our own train station with good parking options! Schools have the International Baccalaureate certification throughout all grades (they are learning Mandarin in elementary school!). We have an a town pool at Anthony Veteran Park. Police are very responsive and present and the fire department hosts an adorable Memorial Day Parade down East Hartsdale ending with ice cream at the fire house. Best value for the dollar in Westchester with family friendly convenience, active lifestyle community with great food all at an affordable housing price.
We could not be happier.

Hartsdale is a very nice area to live in. I feel extremely safe walking the streets if Hartsdale and there are food and shops within walking distance. The only thing that is a negative is the lack of diversity. Also, being that Hartsdale is a very small town the food options are very limited and you tend to get tired of eating the same things over and over again. Also, it can be a bit pricey because you are going to pay for the area you're living in. Other than that, Hartsdale is great. I feel very comfortable coming home from work late at night and walking home from the train, which is also SUPER close.
It's a pretty quiet area, but everyone can be very well known among each other. There's great atmosphere as well as a really big public park that anyone can enjoy. Lots of stores are close by to homes which makes them accessible to everyone. Neighbors are friendly and super helpful.
