Bronx, New York Homes for Sale

About Bedford Park

Located in northwest Bronx, Bedford Park is a quiet enclave between the New York Botanical Garden and Lehman College. Like many New York neighborhoods, its name is derived from a well-known London suburb it was meant to resemble. As early as the 1900s, Manhattanites found escape in Bedford Park and its tree-lined streets. Even today, there’s a feeling of revered history, as if, when you enter Bedford Park, time stops.

Around Bedford Park

The northern border of Bedford Park lies on Mosholu Parkway, which moves toward the 1,222-acre Van Cortlandt Park in the northwest corner. Homes with proximity to the neighborhood’s many parks are always optimal. Since parking isn’t plentiful, homes with garages or that boast closeness to public transportation are also of great value. Recent new developments in the area have affected longstanding classic homes, but overall, housing options full of character abound in this cozy corner of the Bronx.

When it comes to dining options in the neighborhood, residents are left wanting more. It’s just not in the DNA of Bedford Park. There are a few spots, like Trattoria Zero Otto Nove for Italian or Com Tam Ninh Kieu for Vietnamese. If outstanding options are of importance, try the nearby Inwood. There is a farmer’s market open every day of the week except for Mondays and Wednesday for fresh produce offerings.

One of Bedford Park’s charms is its proximity to great amenities and attractions. The neighborhood borders the New York Botanical Garden, with lush flowers and plenty of out-of-town visitors. The greenery continues in Harris Park and Jerome Park Reservoir. Buildings are primarily low to the ground and neighbors are quiet while the streets are bustling. Despite being known as the next “trendy Bronx neighborhood,” Bedford Park maintains a family-friendly environment with long-standing residents proud of where they’ve built a home.

If going out is your scene, take the nearest taxi out of Bedford Park and try heading to Washington Heights. On your way, stop for dinner at Tannat Wine And Cheese in Inwood. Once you’ve arrived, dance the night away at Club Deportivo. End the night by stopping by another local institution, Jolly Tinker, a bar that’s been in the same family for over 50 years.

Start your day off at a local institution, Bedford Cafe, a 24/7 diner on Jerome Avenue. From there, spend the day at The New York Botanical or opt for something a little quieter, like a walk through Van Cortlandt Park. Check out the park’s very own museum, enjoy a leisurely stroll along the trail, or sign up to use one of its countless sporting facilities.

The 4 and the D lines on the subway are the lifelines of Bedford Park. Commuting into Grand Central Station takes about 45 minutes on either line. Traveling farther into the Bronx means taking the Bx26 or Bx39. Many residents own cars and simultaneously many residents complain about the difficult street parking. Access to the Long Island Railroad makes traveling farther north a breeze.
