Spuyten Duyvil Apartments
Bronx

Spuyten Duyvil is a section of the Riverdale area of the Bronx known for its dramatic views of the Harlem River, the Hudson River, the Palisades in New Jersey and the Manhattan skyline.

When New Yorkers cross the Henry Hudson Bridge from Manhattan often among the first sights they see are the lovely brick high-rise apartments of the neighborhood clinging to the hilly riverbanks.

The name “Spuyten Duyvil” translates roughly from the Dutch to mean “spitting Devil” and is thought to refer to the strong currents generated by the meeting of the Harlem and the Hudson Rivers.

More about Spuyten Duyvil

Surprisingly accessible, Spuyten Duyvil includes the public transportation options of a Metro-North Railroad station and the No. 1 subway just a short walk or bus ride away. The community features more than just its iconic riverfront high-rises. Tucked further back away from easy view are clusters of single-family homes and affordable co-ops alongside modest seven-story apartment buildings. And – as a rare plus for New York City, the area has a reputation for plentiful parking.

The single-family homes of the neighborhood include a cluster of picturesque wood-shingled houses on Edsall Avenue, which reminds visitors of villages further north in the Hudson Valley. Another charming group of homes stands on Edgehill road and includes Tudors, bungalows, and colonials.

Spuyten Duyvil offers a large range of ethnic diversity and age diversity. An elderly population lives side-by-side with young families. Residents shop and dine at the Knolls Crescent shopping area (which locals call “the Knolls”). The Knolls features a wine store, dry cleaner, pharmacy, bank and two small markets. It also offers a handful of restaurants, including a Thai restaurant and a diner.

The children of Spuyten Duyvil enjoy the playground at Paul’s Park, a corner of the Henry Hudson Park.

A landmark residence in the area is the Villa Charlotte Bronte, an ivy-covered 1920s co-op that has the romantic look of a medieval castle. Not long ago a mudslide caused by Tropical Storm Irene necessitated the temporary evacuation of residents from the Villa, but the co-op has recovered well.

Many of the co-op buildings in the neighborhood house their own gyms and pools. For those seeking recreation outside their dwelling-space, there’s also near-by Henry Hudson Park and Ewen Park, which features a dog-run and a steep hill that’s locally cherished for the winter sledding pleasure it affords.
