How many apartments with parking are available for rent in Dobbs Ferry?
Dobbs Ferry played a key role in the American Revolutionary War. The village's namesake, Captain William H. Dobbs worked with General George Washington (some historical figure you may have heard of) to ferry troops around the area north of New York City and spy on the British.
Dobbs Ferry is part of the town of Greenburgh, but exists as an independent village with its own mayor. It sits along the banks of the Hudson River, with the narrow Saw Mill River forming its eastern border. Midtown Manhattan is less than 20 miles away by heading down highway NY-9A, which will take you 30 minutes or three days, depending on traffic. There were 10,875 people living here as of the 2010 census, and though Dobbs Ferry is mostly residential, many yards are small, and almost every acre has been developed, giving the village a dense population. This is Mark Zuckerberg's hometown, so if you're having trouble getting Facebook chat to work, feel free to go to his parents' house and complain. See more
Parking can be at a premium in some cities where spaces are challenging to find. Some Dobbs Ferry apartments offer parking options, either outside in a common area or within a private garage.
Ask about the stipulations around the parking. Those may include how many guests are allowed and where tenants park.
Some apartments may only allow parking in front of your own unit. Guest parking may be in a common area for up to one person.
If parking is scarce, look around the area before you sign a lease. Ample street parking in a neighborhood championed for its safety is probably fine. However, it’s probably not worth signing a lease if it means battling for daily parking for you and your guests.
Research whether you need a city permit to park in the neighborhood. Look into the associated costs and what to do about visitors who need parking.
Some tenants prefer garage parking near their units. However, an open-air lot may prove cheaper.
Keep in mind that the cost of wear and tear from parking outside can add up. It may be less expensive, in the long run, to look for an apartment with garage parking.
