Around Kingsbridge

Kingsbridge sits just across the Harlem River from the northern tip of Manhattan. From here, it extends up to the corner of Van Cortlandt Park. In the middle of the neighborhood, you’ll find single-family homes and apartment buildings. Stone and brick houses sit along the inner streets of the neighborhood where residents are secluded from the above-ground subway that runs down Broadway. Most houses don’t have much of a yard and include stoops leading up to the front door, allowing the buildings to sit farther away from the street.

Most restaurants and bars in Kingsbridge can be found in the eastern section of the neighborhood, mostly on Broadway, Johnson, Riverdale, and 231st Street. Here you can find international cuisine ranging from India to Mexico. Kingsbridge also has classic New York City fare like pizza as well as American comfort food from local diners. If residents are in the mood for a beer or cocktail there are a number of pubs and bars in the area as well. These establishments can be especially busy during baseball season when the New York Yankees are playing a few neighborhoods away.

For being a smaller neighborhood, the sights around Kingsbridge can be quite diverse. Walking along Broadway, you’ll see people grabbing takeout from their favorite restaurants. If you’re wandering around in the more quiet and residential sections, you’ll see families socializing with neighbors as they pass by. If you are looking for some greenspace, Ewen Park, Fort Independence Park, and Harris Park offer tree-lined walkways and spacious fields for recreational sports and games.

Spend your Friday night at one of the bars on Broadway and catch up with friends during happy hour or watch your favorite sports team play on T.V. Enjoy a delicious dinner at a local restaurant on Kingsbridge Avenue or dance the night away at one of the bars in the area.

Wake up early and grab a cup of coffee at a local diner. Take a walk up to Van Cortlandt Park and spend the afternoon getting lost in the massive fields, quiet ponds, and interesting statues around the park. Play some outdoor games with family or friends at one of the local parks before heading home to rest.

Kingsbridge has a plethora of transportation options that residents can access. The 1 line of the MTA subway stops at the 231st Street and 238th Street stations along Broadway. This train allows for easy access into Manhattan and into the Bronx. Residents also have several bus lines to choose from, such as the Bx1, Bx7, Bx9, Bx10, and Bx20. The BxM1, BxM2, and BxM18 travel into Manhattan. For residents who own a car, easy access to I-87 can take them to other boroughs or out of the city.
