Riverdale Historic District


On the banks of the Hudson River, Riverdale is one of New York's most beautiful residential communities. Winding, tree-lined roads lead to grand homes and estates, some of which occasionally host concerts by the Bronx Arts Ensemble.

The Riverdale Historic District, designated in 1990, lies along the Hudson River from 252nd to 254th Streets between Independence Avenue and Riverdale Park. The community's crown jewel is Wave Hill, a natural preserve with breathtaking views of the Hudson River and special events year-round. While you're in the area, don't miss the Judaica Museum at the Hebrew Home for the Aged, the Van Cortlandt House Museum and the landmark structures of the College of Mount Saint Vincent. When it's time to eat, Japanese, Thai, Italian and kosher are just some of the options.

Subway : 1 Line to 231st St., then take MTA bus (BX7, BX10, BX20, BX9)
