Around Riverdale

Most of Riverdale offers a suburban feel, filled with single-family homes complete with yards and located along tree-lined streets.

Whether you’re looking for a home with historic grandeur or a sleek, modern high-rise apartment, Riverdale has plenty of options.

While Riverdale may be different from other sections of the Bronx in many ways, one thing it shares is amazing Italian cuisine. If you’re looking to dine in on Italian classics, Beccofino is the place to visit. They’ve even been featured in the Michelin Guide for New York State. If a casual family-owned pizza joint is more your style, you can’t go wrong with Dino’s Pizza, a neighborhood favorite. Looking to explore more local dining options? Be sure to visit Mosholu Avenue and Riverdale Avenue, where most of the neighborhood’s restaurants are concentrated.

When walking the streets of Riverdale, allow yourself to take in the peace and quiet that draws so many residents to the neighborhood.

Along the neighborhood’s western border, a stroll through Riverdale Park offers a great location for dog walking and taking in Hudson River views. No matter where in the neighborhood you choose to explore, you’re bound to fall in love with its natural beauty and charm.

While Riverdale tends to keep things quiet on Friday nights, a night out on the town is only a short bus ride away. The nearby neighborhood of Kingsbridge offers a host of bars and restaurants where locals often gather for dinner and drinks with friends and family.

Hop on the BxM1 or the BxM2 buses and head straight into Manhattan to take advantage of all of the nightlife the city has to offer.

There’s no better way to spend a relaxing Sunday than by taking in the beauty of nature and the stunning Hudson River views provided by Wave Hill.

Heat or rain got the best of you? Then head inside to check out the art on display at Glyndor Gallery.
