The Daily Dobbs Ferry has been on the hunt for some local YouTube videos that stick out from the rest. We want to know which videos you think are the best, funniest or most unique. We recently found one focused on the Village of Ardsley itself.
Ardsley has been described in a number of ways, but one of the most visual depictions of the community can be seen in the featured YouTube video above. The video was created and uploaded by Houlihan Lawrence Real Estate, with over 18,000 online views. The real estate video is one of 40 by the company that showcases different areas in Westchester County.
In the Ardsley video, the focus is on the small town feel to the community and how locals feel about that environment.
"In Ardsley there is a tremendous sense of community," said hardware store owner Joe Zeolla in the YouTube video. "I've been here 30 years and I'm a very recognized face."
The two minute clip has shots of various locations around Ardsley and interviews several residents for their take on the community.
"People are not afraid to stay here," said retired teacher Dan Mullholand in the video. "It's not a place where you move as soon as your kids graduate from school."
According to the official village website , Ardsley was formerly known as Ashford due to its proximity to Ashford Ave. The village started out with small shops throughout the area and in the early 1880s the Putnam Railroad and the New Croton Aqueduct were built. Afterwards, the village started to grow exponentially and officially became known as Ardsley on March 2, 1883, according to the village website.
