The neighborhood draws families with children, couples and established singles seeking a sense of stability and a more relaxed pace of life while also giving its residents easy reach to all the attractions Manhattan has to offer. Those looking to make their home in this neighborhood can expect to find a balanced mix of well-tended older houses, low-rise brick and pre-war buildings, and newer co-ops and condominium buildings, including mid and high-rise complexes. The neighborhood is considered affordable and is one of the few places in New York with plenty of street parking.

With its longtime reputation for being remarkably safe and quiet, Central Riverdale draws families with children, couples, and established singles seeking a sense of stability and a more relaxed pace of life while keeping within easy reach all the attractions Manhattan has to offer.

History: Originally home to country estates built by influential Manhattanites, when commuting by railroad gained popularity at the turn of the century, Riverdale became the year-round residence of affluent businessmen and their families. The adjacent Fieldston neighborhood, which is privately owned, has preserved the architectural interest of a turn-of-the century suburb. Newer additions to Central Riverdale include a variety of smaller houses and upscale apartment buildings.

Activities: The entire east side of Central Riverdale is lined with an array of parks overlooking the Hudson River. Be refreshed by a visit to Wave Hill, a natural treasure of abundant gardens and stunning grounds. For wonderful walking trails and opportunities for bird watching, explore Riverdale Park and the Raoul Wallenberg Forest Preserve. At Seton Park, you can choose from tennis and basketball courts as well as its football, soccer, and baseball fields. And of course, you’ll want to make the most of 1,146-acre Van Cortlandt Park, where you can participate in numerous recreational activities, from the cricket fields to the running track, from the swimming pool to the ice skating rink.

Check it out: Don’t miss the Riverdale Festival of the Arts, an exciting cultural street fair featuring live music and other arts performances, held in the fall.
