Around West Bronx
The West Bronx is a diverse neighborhood that’s filled with plenty of amenities and attractions. If you’re looking to escape the bustling city life, then the Riverdale section of the West Bronx may be for you. Riverdale has a more suburban feel with expansive yards and quiet streets. If proximity to local attractions is your focus, then the Fordham section may be more your style. This subsection offers easy access to the Bronx Zoo, the New York Botanical Garden, and Little Italy. Condos, co-ops, apartment buildings, and single-family homes can all be found throughout the West Bronx.
The West Bronx holds one of New York City’s best hidden gems—its own Little Italy. In fact, many New Yorkers will argue that the Bronx’s Little Italy is the most authentic one in the city.
