Fordham Manor Apartments

Fordham Manor sits on the west side of the Bronx and serves a perfect combination of out-of-town serenity and downtown convenience.

Nestled between Fordham University and the Harlem River, the neighborhood is defined by its historical treasures, natural wonders, and bustling marketplace, all minutes from Manhattan.

Fordham Manor was founded in 1671, when Governor Lovelace bestowed Dutchman John Archer with a stately manor. John’s lands contained the only direct route to Manhattan, which was a shallow crossing on the Harlem River. Dutch families started to settle around this crossing and deemed it ford ham, meaning houses next to shallow water.

More about Fordham Manor

Today, Fordham Manor contains a wealth of spacious pre-war buildings offering breathing room for urbanites who need quick access to Manhattan. You won’t need a car, but you’ll feel like you’re in another world.

The neighborhood is anchored by the Edgar Allan Poe Cottage on Kingsbridge Road. The only surviving structure from the old village of Fordham, this 1812 cottage is where the famous poet wrote the immortal works The Bells and Annabel Lee. Perfectly preserved with era-specific furniture, the cottage is a window into New York life two centuries ago. Guided tours can be arranged through the Bronx Historical Society.

Surrounding the cottage is Fordham Manor’s beloved Poe Park, where residents and visitors gather for the weekly Bronx Greenmarket and pick up fresh fruit, vegetables, and bread shipped in from upstate farms. But Poe Park is just an appetizer for the main course: The New York Botanical Garden. Situated in the northern half of Bronx Park, the nature conservatory contains exotic plants, Victorian greenhouses, and a forty-acre primeval forest. Don’t miss the rose garden created by Beatrix Farrand, America’s first female landscape designer, and the newly restored glass pavilion inspired by the Palm House in London’s Kew Gardens.

Fordham Manor’s not all about nature: it’s got shopping and cuisine to rival Manhattan. The two busy commercial strips on Fordham Road and Kingsbridge Road offer independent businesses, major chains, and some of the best Italian, Caribbean, and Spanish food in the Bronx.

If you have to travel to Manhattan, Fordham Manor’s got you covered. B, D, and 4 subway service gets you to Manhattan within minutes.
