Riverdale Apartments

Riverdale is situated in the northwest corner of the Bronx and combines big city convenience with suburban comfort.

The neighborhood, bordered by the Hudson River, Manhattan, and the 1,100-acre Van Cortlandt Park, is the perfect haven for urbanites seeking open spaces and friendly communities.

Riverdale may be in the Bronx, but with its winding, European-style streets and spectacular views of the Hudson River and New Jersey’s Palisades, you won’t believe you’re in the city. Nineteenth-century mansions dot the landscape. Five parks provide playgrounds, baseball diamonds, and a strong sense of neighborhood unity on the weekends.

More about Riverdale

For an altogether transforming experience, check out Wave Hill: a 28-acre refuge of public gardens, greenhouses, cultural centers, and art galleries. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Wave Hill features plants and flowers from around the world.

You can also climb to the Pergola Overlook and gaze upon the untouched beauty of the Palisades, or hike through the Herbert and Hyonja Abrons Woodland, ten acres of forest that make you forget you’re still in the city.

From Wave Hill, walk a few minutes down Independence Avenue to behold the Henry Hudson Monument, commemorating the first European to discover the Hudson River. Its comprised of a huge Doric column built in 1909 and a statue of the famous explorer built thirty years later.

A few minutes away on Riverdale Avenue stands the Riverdale Bell Tower. Its massive bell, built in 1746, was obtained during the Mexican War in 1848.

Another big plus: Riverdale offers Manhattan-quality cuisine at Bronx prices, from neighborhood chophouses serving juicy steaks to traditional Italian spots serving red-sauce delights. Johnson Avenue and Riverdale Ave are the main shopping thoroughfares, featuring national chains alongside mom-and-pop boutiques.

To top it all off, Riverdale’s a commuters dream. A Metro-North train ride gets you to midtown Manhattan in 25 minutes and a drive over the Henry Hudson Bridge gets you to Manhattan within seconds. Express buses and the 1 subway train provide transportation throughout the city,
