“Today’s A Yellow Day” A Fictional Account of Dobbs Ferry

Today's A Yellow DayPerhaps I am late to the dance, but there is a great new book out called “Today’s A Yellow Day” which recounts fictional events that take place in Dobbs Ferry NY in the 1960’s. Written by James Roth who grew up in Dobbs Ferry at that time, it mentions a number of Dobbs Ferry “hot spots” like Sam’s Restaurant, The Ardsley Country Club, Masters School etc. As a lifetime Dobbs Ferry resident, the whole book just rings true because of these details and is very believable. There are even a few things I had forgotten about, like how there used to be a dump on the waterfront, of all places. It’s kind of like a walk down my own Memory Lane except for the crime part, at least a generation later. A great read for anyone that lived or lives in Dobbs Ferry. It is available at the Dobbs Ferry Library, although there is a long line of holds on it, but it can also be purchased at your local bookseller or, if all else fails, amazon.com: Today’s A Yellow Day
