HAPPY 100TH BIRTHDAY ALETA REID! Long time Ardsley/Dobbs Ferry resident, and former Ardsley Historical Society Board member celebrated her birthday last weekend in style! A Friday party was followed up by a Saturday drive-by with friends and admirers. The event kicked off around 11:10 with about 6 fire trucks, fire chief's car, two police vehicles with sirens blaring and lights flashing plus horns honking. That was followed by 15-20 cars (there could have been more) with signs in their windows. Aleta was out front sitting on her porch enjoying it all.

This street scene is looking west (towards Dobbs Ferry) from the main intersection of Ardsley (Ashford Ave and Saw Mill River Rd). The photo was taken circa 1904. The building on the right is the Barnett Building that housed the Municipal Offices, court and fire company. *Note the fire bell tower.

Any idea where/what this was?
May I suggest a directory of Ardsley street names ? For example Joyce was the daughter of the developer of that area. Heatherdell was the original name of the 150 acre farm before the property became part of the Lewisohn estate. King street was for Capt King who ran a famous pickle farm.
